Description

Rocketry Works launch pads are all compatible with this launch rod mount. While the PLA material used in its construction resists the heat of many low power rocket launches, these do wear out over time. All launch rod mounts used in Rocketry Works launches at schools and community organizations are still going strong after more than 100 launches each. This replacement launch rod mount comes in three sizes:

  • Fits 1/8 inch launch rods (red)
  • Fits 3/16 inch launch rods (orange)
  • Fits 1/4 inch launch rods (yellow)

 

If you're interested in using these launch rod mounts in your own pad, they mount into Rocketry Works' Cape Canaveral launch pad's 1.25 inch PVC with a 9/16 inch top hole and a 7/16 inch bottom hole.  Those dimensions also fit the 3/4 inch side out elbow of the Vandenberg launch pad. The redesigned launch rod mounts also now include a nut and bolt you can use to secure the launch rod in the launch rod mount. 

Prior to fall of 2020, Rocketry Works launch pads used a smaller diameter launch rod mount. The legacy mount fits Rocketry Works' Cape Canaveral launch pad's 1.25 inch PVC with a 29/64 inch top hole and a 23/64 inch bottom hole.  Those dimensions also fit the 3/4 inch side out elbow of the legacy Vandenberg launch pad.  If you need the legacy size, leave us a note in the order comments.
