Gumball machine stands and vending machine stands / racks for sale! All of our vending stands and racks are compatible with industry-standard machines with pre-drilled mounting holes and vending machine brackets allowing the mounting of one, two or three machines on a single stand. The only exception is the Carousel pedestal stand which only fits Carousel machines with a threaded base plate. Our Vending Racks come in various sizes and accept standard commercial vending machines.
You've ordered a gumball or candy vending machine on a stand and the boxes with the different components have arrived. Boxes? Yes. Your machine and stand will arrive in separate boxes and you will need to attach the machine to the stand. The good news? It's very simple! Here's how...
After removing the parts from the boxes, the first thing you will need to do is build the stand. For the purpose of this tutorial, let's assume we are attaching two machines to one stand. The stand unit consists of a double bracket (the piece that sits on top of the stand and will hold the machines), a flange (a circular piece that sits between the double bracket and the pipe), a threaded pipe, and the base. First, screw the threaded pipe into the base. It should not matter which end, but one end might fit better than the other so play with it and see what works best. Once the pipe is screwed into the base, you can then attach the flange onto the other end of the threaded pipe simply by screwing the hole in the middle of the flange onto the other threaded end of the pipe. Next, attach the double bracket to the flange, lining up the holes in the center of the bracket, using the bolts provided. Most double brackets attach to the flange using two bolts that go through the top of the bracket into threaded holes on the flange. If you are attaching just one machine to a stand, there is no bracket, the machine attaches directly to the flange.
Now that your stand is complete, the next step is mounting your machines onto the bracket. This is where a lot of our customers get confused because the way bulk vending machines attach to a stand is somewhat counter intuitive! The gumball or candy machine attaches to the bracket through the top of the base plate of the machine. So, start by removing the lock of your bulk vending machine. Once the lock is removed, the entire machine should lift off its base plate by sliding it up and off the center rod. Once the bulk vendor is removed, all you should see is the base plate and the center rod. Next, place the metal base of the bulk vendor on either side of the double bracket and use the bolts provided (usually it's two per machine) to screw the center holes of the bulk vendor base plate into threaded holes in the bracket. Do not over tighten! Once both base plates are securely attached, slide the gumball or candy machines back down the center rod and into the base, replace the locks and you are ready to roll!
