Now find a strippper. If you want a static or spinning dance pole several companies out there make them and their not all that expensive. The bolts are protruding up (and down from ceiling) into the pathway of my wife’s foot. Use a level to make sure that it is plumb.
Make own pole stripper. Attach a flange to the floor board, but not to the ceiling board. At this point, you need to remember to nourish your body. And even then, our legs just slide right down like nothing. You tighten the pipe into the flanges by hand.
Make sure that they will fit through the holes in the flanges. I originally bought the no-skid strips for bath tubs.
