This base plate is considered the “industry standard” base that pairs with the popular 8′ Upright. 16″ x 14″ Bases are designed to pair with fixed height or telescoping Uprights up to 8′ high. These bases feature a stacking slot and are available with 1.5″ or 2″ diam — x 3″ high pin sizes. The stacking slot of the base is always on the second dimension of the base, so for this base the stacking slot is on the 14″ side which means that this base can stagger stack with the popular 8″ x 14″ Base that pairs with 3′ Uprights to form the arms of a trade show booth. The taller you go with your Upright, the heavier the Base you need, check out our other Bases for uprights over 8′ or for even more excellent stability, you can also add a Base Weight or Saddle Bag for increased support on your base.

- Three holes for pin placement down the middle so the pin can be positioned in the middle or off to the side when setting up against a wall or corner
- Stacking slot, allowing you to keep your pin installed while stagger stacking your bases for more compact storage and transportation.
- Lightweight, hollow steel pins
16″ x 14″ bases pair with uprights up to 8′ H (10lbs) *recommend 3″ pin (0.5lbs)
When picking your pin size, match up the first dimensions with the diameter of your Slip-Fit Uprights. We sell both 1.5″ and 2″ uprights. The height of the pin increases stability. For reference, our standard 8′ upright pairs with our 16″ x 14″ base with a 1.5″ x 3″ pin. If you have any questions on how to pick out which base you need with your upright, we are happy to help! 1.800.433.9767
Due to the large volume of base plates we manufacture, Georgia Expo purchases raw steel from multiple mills in order to meet demand; as such, the look of the bases may vary between orders. This does not affect the performance of the product: all grey base plates are made from galvanized steel, and the industrial finish can appear different from plate to plate.
