What thickness pipe is that and how do you secure the top end?

What's the load capacity of the tripod?

The pipe is 8' x 2-3/8" chain link fence posts, for lightness. A 100
Lb, 2" water pipe tripod was too difficult to carry and set up on
rough ground, though fine around the yard.

Here is the top connection:

I wrote a paragraph explaining the engineering, then reconsidered and
deleted it. Good luck, you're on your own if you get hurt.
