Lighting Truss Basics: Spigots, pins & clips

by Brad on February 03, 2022

If you have never set up lighting/stage truss before, it can be a little bit confusing. But don't worry, it's super easy!


Here we have our spigots, pins and clips. These are used to join our truss pieces together.

Firstly, take your spigot. You'll notice each side has a different size hole. This is because the spigots and pins are tapered. You'll want to put the small sized hole closest to the center of the truss. You'll notice the inside hole in the truss is smaller than the outside.

Next, with the pointy end first, slide in your pin. Sometimes you may need to give it a bit of a bash with a hammer to get it in. Now secure your pin with your clip.  Assemble the rest of your spigots, pins and clips.

To attach the next piece of truss, just join your two pieces together and follow the previous steps.

 Yep, it's that easy!  Check out the full video here!
