If you know a welder, you can have sleeves made for about $8 a piece.
Our club had sleeves made for about 8 dollars as well. Makes temporary courses easier for sure.

FWIW:

DGA Mach III and Chainstar have the same diameter poles (or very close at least), but the locking collar's are not interchangeable. The park we are working with come up with a very smart solution to make them all work with a Chainstar sleeve. They welded on a 'washer' to the bottom of a Mach III then drilled out the hole to match up with the Chainstar sleeve and make the number plate face the right way. I'll post pics when I get some..

It can be done very easily, I did this by mistake on the steady ed course. Just add a shim if you feel the the pole is too loose in the sleeve, the main issue is the locking tabs(phalanges) matching up. It was easy to just take a portable drill out and drill the remainder of the lock hole out. It took 30 seconds per sleeve and works like a charm...

Same companies aren't even always the same. Old discatchers don't fit into new discatchers, I believe.

I will verify that this is correct. Milo McIver used to have old DCs and new DCs and we'd always have a heck of a time putting all the baskets back out when they were removed for other activities.
