    By the way, ask for Steven Harrison. Also ask to have the stand sent USPS to save on postage. Mine was $33.00 shipped for two stands. No screws are supplied.

    Very slick!

    I don't have an 870 but do have an 850 and the same idea should work.

    Thanks for this!

    These things are called bales, or at least used to be.

    I’ve seen them called a half a dozen things. That’s why it took so long to Google this company’s product which they call “tilt stands”.

    One of the best hamfest finds I ever had was a bale (bail?) which I bought for I think 50 cents. I used it on my BitX20a which I built into a CB enclosure. At another hamfest I found some folding cabinet handles of which I bought two and used one on another QRP radio. I still have the other one but wish I would have bought more than just two. But nice to find another source for these should I need more.
