[DML] Re: Stanchions



Oliver - I totally agree with your reply.  The only dent (touch wood) 
that Winged1 has ever suffered while out there in the wild was as a 
result of a steel stanchion tipping over after a herd of young children 
scampered by.  We were inside a very upscale shopping mall for a car 
show at the time.  The shopping mall wanted the cars "protected" from 
the crowds during the show, and insisted on using these stanchions.  
Luckily, we were having a tech session soon after, and a guy trained in 
stainless steel work was going to be there to show off his technique.  
He "demonstrated" his work on my car.

During car shows we have a very subtle woven rope that we clip between 
the door striker pins to block the door openings. This seems to provide 
just enough of a hint that the car is not a park bench.  In general, 
people at car shows are very good.  However, there are always a handful 
of knuckleheads to contend with.

chains, you know what kids like to do.  Swing or sit on them.  I've 
even seen adults lean on velvet ropes to reach the car, causing posts 
to teeter and fall.
