    Hello all,

    Would anyone know where I can get just the caps for stanchions? I have a few that have wondered off over the years that need to be replaced, Thank you!

    Hi Bonnie,

    I've found that if you search the brand name of your stanchions (usually somewhere on the top of the stanchion), there are many companies that sell replacement parts for pretty cheap online! Just make sure that the ones you buy are compatible with your stanchions, for example, we use Tensabarrier, and, Crowd Control Direct, and Barrier Warehouse all offer replacement parts at varying prices. 

    Good Luck!

    Hi Bonnie, Who do you use? In fact, I'd love to hear what everybody uses for their crowd control and object barriers. We use Line Logic, they're kind of an Absolute knockoff and cost far less.

    They've been good, though I'd say there is some inconsistency in the color of the caps and the bodies of the stanchions (16" tall ones btw). Those inconsistencies and not appreciable by the visitor, it's just my perfectionist heart that breaks a little when I notice the difference.
