Standard 2" x 2" wooden stake used for mounting photocells for (primarily) ski racing, from the most basic citizens race all the way up to the Olympic Games. These are used because of their rigidity as well as their ability to shear at ground level if hit hard enough by a falling athlete (posts should be scored at ground level using a hand saw to ensure a safe shear factor). NEVER use 2 x 4's for photocell posts as they will cause major injury to an athlete that hits them.
