No idea what stanchions were until I saw the pictures. I was like, “So THAT’s what stanchions are.” I mean, I know what the thing is, but until today I didn’t knew it was called stanchion. OMG I’m a complete idiot. XD But anyway, http://www.siegeldisplay.com/ has a couple of stanchion ropes and accessories. The cool thing is if you buy the stanchion posts from them, the posts would come pre-assembled to your specifications.
