MAGNETIC Stanchions Base Mount

MAGNETIC stanchions base mounts are the only ones that don’t require drilling into floors. Securely adheres to most surfaces with VHB tape.

Magnetic Bases
Magnetic Bases

Our most attractive base mount.

Easy, non-destructive installation. Simply mounts with VHB tape on smooth, hard surfaces, or with epoxy on rough surfaces to avoid damage from drilling. Can also be permanently installed with screws.

Maximizes queue space. Small base diameter allows for tighter lane widths to get more linear queuing in the same area.

Flexible queue lines. Posts can face any direction after installation so you can align your belts and reconfigure queue lines with minimal effort.

Thoughtfully engineered. Expertly executed.

Exclusive spring-loaded technology absorbs impact, so the posts stay on the floor plates. Three extremely strong neodymium magnets hold posts upright and in a straight line during normal use and low/medium impacts.

Hole in base plate aligns with centering bolt in post to help maintain proper positioning throughout the day. Beveled base plate edges prevent tripping when the posts are removed.

Sturdy posts won’t shift when installed in REMOVABLE base mounts, but easily remove from socket for flexible floor stanchions queues.

Socket power!

Easy floor maintenance. Simply remove lightweight posts, clean the floor and insert the posts back into the sockets.

Flexible queue area. With no heavy bases to store and transport, you can quickly set up additional posts in pre-installed sockets to create a larger queuing area to accommodate high traffic.

Customizable. Offered in our full line of post finishes to match the décor of your facility. Several finishes can be used outdoors with no modification.

Sturdy when in use. Easy to remove when not.

When fewer posts are needed, insert socket caps for a neat appearance and no tripping hazard. With no bases to worry about, more posts can be stored in a smaller footprint.

Lightweight posts can be momentarily lifted from the socket to easily clean floors or removed to make queue areas smaller.


Patented MINI-SOCKET stanchion base mounts have the smallest possible footprint, making posts appear ‘baseless’ and install in 15 min. Different length sockets are available to accommodate all flooring types.

Minimum footprint. Maximum style.

Economical installation. When comparing to other permanent/semi-permanent stanchions, save money on a simple and quick installation, which takes approximately 10 minutes, by greatly reducing labor costs.

Perfect for thinner flooring. Because the drilled hole is so small, mini sockets perfectly accommodate thinner floors, making them an ideal base mount for cement, terrazzo, tile and granite.

Handy, lightweight posts. Since posts have a tiny but mighty bolt attached to the bottom, there are no heavy bases to transport and store. When more queue lines are needed to accommodate high traffic, simply screw the post into the socket and rotate it within 350 degrees to align belts.

Being mini has mighty advantages.

The mini socket only requires a 15/16” x 2” deep hole drilled into the flooring, so the entire stanchion only takes up 2.5” (the width of the post) of floor space.

Internal spring-loaded assembly allows the post to lean about 10 degrees in any direction absorbing impact from accidental abuse, such as carts or unruly children.

When post is removed, socket and screw cap are roughly the size of a quarter. Nylon disc protects the end of the post and floor surface from getting damaged due to post movement.

FIXED Base Mount

FIXED base mounts are the ideal solution when setting up permanently established floor stanchion queues.

In it for the long haul.

Economical. The permanent fixed base mount is the most economical option in our product line.

Easy to install. Simply requires three screws to be drilled into the ground. (Screws not included.)

Built tough. The steel post, welded to the 5” diameter steel base, ensures a strong permanently secured attachment to the ground.
