In deference to Brant Fagan and Jerry Holway I am no longer refering to my rig stabilization device as "antlers"

The slight was purely unintentional. Again, my apologies.

Given their propensity for hitting directors in the head who approach to closely, dare I suggest....

"Knockers"?

The best part is every time some asks "Why are they called knockers?", you can demonstrate.

Jim "who doesn't love knockers?" Bartell

Reminds me of Young Frankenstein:
Gene Weilder: "Nice Knockers!"
Teri Garr: "Why thankyou."

Score 2 for knockers.
