A telescoping “third hand” helps Club member Arthur Fish Jr. of Jonesville, Michigan, hang light fixtures. He uses a 1/2-in.-dia. x 70-in. length of conduit inserted into a 3/4‑in.-dia. x 70-in. section of conduit with a large washer as a wedge to lock the narrower length at the appropriate height. A rubber cushion typically used on a chair leg is attached to the bottom of the 3/4‑in.‑dia. section to give it a firm grip on the floor. Once the light fixture is attached, Arthur simply lifts up the locking washer to collapse the support.
