Can anyone give a rouge estimate on how tight the baton dispensers hold the baton in place? Like do they fall out at a small touch or require some tugging to get them free?
Personally I think this will be depending on who built the field and a few other factors. Ours are fairly hard to remove, some might be easy to remove. Some friendly advice would be to design for the “worst”. Note: Its not really that bad. worst is considered the hard to remove ones.
There is “a lot” of clearance inside the dispenser. The side rails are 1" and the OD of the PVC is about .8". Also remember the weight of the other batons pushing down inside the dispenser. The fuller the dispenser, the more force you’ll need to overcome the weight and gravity.
