A clever streetlamp riser from event product developer Meese Orbitron Dunne Co. (MOD), La Mirada, Calif., raises the height of the company’s antique streetlamps by 3-1/2 inches and increases the diameter of its platform base to nearly two feet for enhanced dramatic appeal and extra stability for outdoor events.

The streetlamp riser is rotationally molded in one piece from 100% polyethylene for load bearing strength, impact resistance and durability. The stability base is also waterproof and weatherproof and may be placed outdoors seasonally or for long-term installation without substantial fading or discoloring.
