Posted:for my rig, i use key-rings to connect two streetlights together, and a key-ring with a swivel to attach them to my handles. so there's no string or chain, just two streetlights in each hand. be careful with these though -- they're pretty fragile. you might want to find a way to insulate them somehow -- mine are wrapped up in clear packing tape. looks ugly, but in dark conditions and with the lights going, they look just the same -- all you see is the lights.

taken out of context i must seem so strange

Posted:ummm...did you buy single streetlights?...i get the quantum leashes and they come already attached in lengths of 2 lights with protective covers..you can buy them singly but if you add up the cost, it's only a couple of bucks more to have them arrive attached in lengths with their own handles

Posted:my streetlights came with the protective shell that they also sell with it, im just using my fire poi's chain and double loop from HOP, seems to work well. By the way these are awesome poi.

Posted:After doing a search on LED poi, these streetlights seem to come out pretty well...so, i checked out what they actually look like - and lo and behold they're exactly the same thing they sell in the local Pound Shop! Damn..knew i should have bought them all when i saw them...

Posted:just use smaller gauge ballchain. I use 10 gauge brass ball chain for glowsticks - light enough so the moment of intertial stays well out towards the glowstick poi heads, way more than strong enough for glow sticks, and it doesn't tangle and drive you insane every 30 seconds like string does.
