Hi-


I have a Premier Mounts Polaris Mag-Pro. It uses 1.5" NTP (national tapered pipe), which is good. The bad thing is it did not come with the pipe or a fixture to mount it the the ceiling.



...for a few dollars more ($68 retail) I can get their PP5, which is a 6x6 plate that is threaded for the 1.5". I would rather pull something off the shelf from the hardware store. I also need to get a very short cut of the 1.5" NTP, threaded on both sides.


Any ideas?


Thanks,

You can get a threaded base plate from a plumbing supply store and the short threaded (both ends) 1.5" pipe that you need is called a nipple. They come in 1" increments starting at 2" of length. Lowes even sells a good range of sizes. This will cost less than $15.00, maybe less than $10.00 for both items.

Thanks... I'll try Lowes later today. Is it just called a threaded base plate? Does HD have it too?

I do not know if Lowes has the plates, but I have bought NPT nipples (1/2" gas line for gas logs) there before.

Hi-


I found it all... much cheaper than the official mounts. Yes, it needs paint!


I think it was about $2 for the nipple and $7 for the "floor mount ring".


Thanks again,
