Hinged Ground Socket
The hinged ground socket for the discus and hammer cage is made from aluminium. The socket is designed to match the oval profile 120x100 of the discus and hammer cage. The cover of this socket can be coated with the surrounding material. It is available in two lengths 550 mm (discus cage and training hammer cage) and 850 mm (competition hammer cage). The insertion lengths are 500 mm and 800 mm respectively. The ground socket is equipped with a compartment to store possible soiling without effecting the height of the post. It holds a hinge, which allows to erect the post easily. The post is placed in the socket laying on the ground. After the post is in the socket it can be put into position easily.
