35mm'ish diameter/400mm'ish length of tubing pushed-up unto the hollow of the frame so it pushes right up against the seat post within the tube. It's relatively snug and is not going anywhere.
The other side of the tube is simply slotted onto the outer edge of the light stand. Obviously not heavy duty but will certainly for the moment help me clean and lube the wheels, frame etc. when necessary. 10ish KG seems to get handled fine & there's some basic adjustability i.e. Can rotate bike, move-up & down (although I wouldn't in order to retain stability) and can tilt it left and right :-)
May jam some sort of metal into the end that currently just slots quite loosely onto the outside of the light stand so that I can instead slot a narrower end into the light stand and tighten. This would eliminate the main weakness.
