    I am working a dance show and the last movement has two chandaliers that fly in. The problem is they spin. We tethered them together to reduce this, but it effects the way they hang. It causes them to toe out. We tried to counteract that by adding some thethers on the offstage side and although it fixes the spin they are horribly crooked. Ideas??

    Are they flying in on a batten? It's weird that they would spin. Is it possible to put them on welded chain?

    Square chain might also help keep them straight as it doesn't rotate as easily.

    Could you hang them from the batten with a "V" of aircraft cable?

    The chandeliers should be hung on a "T " bar.

    Hang them on more of a "U" with the baten with aircraft cable. Two connection points on the chandelier, and two on the baten.
