The 260-950 Rain Gauge Mounting Plate is an easy and convenient way to mount your rain gauge. The mounting plate is sized to fit the 260-2500 and 260-2501 Tipping Bucket Rain Gauges. Welded to the bottom of the plate is a hub that will accept a standard 1" (1.34" o.d.) pipe. Hardware is supplied for mounting the rain gauge to the plate. The plate should be leveled prior to installing the gauge.
