Old horror movies like Frankenstein or a modern crime dramas like Bones which feature lab scences often show beakers & flasks with lab ring stands in “supporting” roles.
This basic chemistry lab equipment is actually quite versatile & can be put to many uses around the home or non-science business applications.
Tiered Garden Ring Stands
The two images below illustrate the convenience of lab support/ring stands for indoor or outdoor gardening. You can use them to stack planters vertically to fit a window sill. Or use them to hold herbs & move them from indoors to outdoors in early spring to avoid cold spells. (Note: we don’t stock the rings any longer.)
This image features our large support stand with a 6×9″ (225x150mm) base. Vertical rods are available in 10″ (250mm) lengths to extend height as needed.
This image shows a lab support stand with 5 support rings attached at different angles. The whole assembly is portable for moving indoors at night fall.
Product Display Stands
Ringstands make great science themed displays. The image below shows standard chemistry beakers but flasks & test tubes can also be used with clamps & holders.
A local hospital fundraiser used ringstands and beakers along with molecular models, to create varied science theme motifs on different floors.
Hobby Tool, Photography Prop Stand
Sometimes two hands aren’t enough. You can combine stands, rods and clamp holders anyway you need with fully adjustable heights and angles.
You can even use them to hang objects at different heights in the foreground and background for photography.
A motorized hand tool & regular magnifier can be positioned so you can work with both hands & see what you are doing.
All the clamps, rings & rods shown in the pictures above are interchangeable & will work with our 2 different support bases. Send us your pictures if you find interesting ways to use them.
Product Discontinuation Notice
As of early 2018, we no longer stock the support rings you see in the images above.
