    • The #19D stall consists of two hot-rolled, high carbon loop free stalls, pre-welded to a heavy 10 ga. 3" post with a galvanized rust shield and a special anchor to prevent twisting in cement. Use the #19D as an alternative to mounting free stalls on both sides of a wood post. This style eliminates the most common loop stall problem, stalls being torn off the wall due to inadequate mounting. The #19D works for new installations or remodeling existing free stall barns. The #19D is also available using #19M loops.
