Recommendations for new Smoke Detectors?

Answer:

The key is that the joint are not water tight. So a loose fit on one or two joints would make it possible. 4 elbows 5 nipples ( 3 - 6inch, 1 - 3 or 2 1/2 inch and 1- 2 inch) 1 coupling( 1 inch long One leg of the frame is made up of two shorter nipples. A coupling is used to joint these together. Normally a union would be used to make a water tight fit but a sloppy loose connection with a coupling can be done as only a thread or two will be engaged on one connection. (A connection none the less) The key here is that the coupling it over threaded on to one nipple end. The other nipple is placed into the other end of the coupling. This nipple has also been over tightened into its elbow. First back off the overtightened nipple from the elbow. As you unthread from the elbow you will be threading into the coupling. Then switch to the coupling and repeat the process. Unthread the coupling from one nipple and it will tighten on to the other.
Personally I wouldn't do it because you are doubting it already. Too risky. A horse at 4 is not solidified in his training and you don't know how he's going to react to the stress of the parade. I might take him along and hand walk him in his tack if he survives the parts of getting ready and the lineup. That way you could still participate but in a safer way. Remember if it becomes too much for him, you can always exit the parade. Walk the course ahead of time so you know the escape routes. Ask your vet for some Acepromazine and instructions on how to give it in case he needs a little chemical help to get through this. I worry more about the flapping flags, sirens, and kids running up behind a 4 yr old to pet him than about him being a stud. It's a lot for a young horse.
