Looking to add a bit extra spice to your at-home workouts? Installing a stripper dance pole can be an excellent way to liven up your moves!
But before you get started, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Here are some tips for installing your stripper dance pole at home.
Make sure you have enough space at your home for a stripper pole
When installing a stripper pole at home, space can often be a significant deciding factor.
After all, if you don’t have enough room to swing a cat, installing a dance pole might not be the best idea! 😉
Before you start, take several measurements and plan out the setup carefully so that you don’t find yourself pole dancing in the hallway or having poles welded together in your crowded bathroom.
Check if your ceiling is strong enough to hold the weight of the pole
If you’ve chosen a freestanding bar, this step can be skipped.
There are a few things to consider for tension and pressure poles or fixed mounts.
All areas should be sturdy enough for installation if your ceiling is concrete.
If it consists of metal rafters, joists, and boards, you’ll need to place the pole under a girder or beam for extra support.
You can use a stud finder or tap the ceiling to check – solid-sounding taps indicate rafters or joists.

Choose a suitable material
There are many different types of stripper poles available, so make sure you pick one that’s right for your needs and budget.
With so many types of stripper poles on the market, it’s hard to know where to start.
Selecting the right pole can make all the difference between before-show jitters and post-performance glory.
Before taking the plunge, consider the material best for your needs and budget. For example, most stripper poles are made from either brass or stainless steel.
Brass poles come in various sizes but tend toward scratches, so keep them clean and protect them!
Stainless steel needs less upkeep and won’t rust but can be slippery when dancing.
Choose wisely – that perfect pole waits for no diva!
Following instructions carefully is essential when it comes to installing a dance pole.
Begin by ensuring you have all the necessary pieces listed in your manual.
Then, follow the instructions to assemble and secure the pole in its location.
Contact the pole manufacturer if you’re unsure about any of these steps.
That way, you can be confident that your setup is safe and ready for you to show off those moves!
