Often stores, banks and trade shows need a way to keeppeople away from touching a display or they want them to form into lines. One way is by putting up ropes. If you havebeen in a movie theater, I am sure you have seen these ropes that may guide youto the ticket taker or to the concession stand. Movable stanchions often hold up these ropes. A movable stanchion gives the user theability to route the line in any direction it wants. They can also be used to mark a boundary if you do not want peopleto get too close to a display.
