    Anyone got tips are stories on them? Been wanting to get into it a little bit.
    I noticed theres usually a small pipe the goes from the ground all the way up next to the support pole that could be used to climb up there.

    Or is there a way to get to those ladders?

    Everyone on here uses grappling hooks or hires a worlds strongest man to throw them up.
    I suggest you start lookin for either of these

    alot of the time there are cables held to the pole by shitty brackets, rip it out and climb.

    Always do billboards alone. The best type of shoes to wear are bowling shoes. Trust, inside tip.

    first off alota billboards have light boxs somewere near them which activates the lights at night....these can be turn off by shineing a light directly at it....ive been lookin for those hardcore laser pointers that can burn ppl and pop balloons n shit wiht no luck
    anyways
    learning how to shimmy up a pole can come in handy...any other questions...fuck off and lurk near a billboard with no gear and see what u need to do

    Why do you have to fuck with the kid man?
    He's just looking for help, and you have to go and try to get him in trouble telling him all this bogus shit.
    Not cool, nig.

    you guys are assholes
    the kid just wants a little help.

    Jaze,
    bring a socket wrench with a 13mm socket with you when you go to the billboard. Also bring a pair of electrical leads from a multimeter. If you don't know what i'm talking about, then unfold two paper clips and connect them with a bit of wire.
    there should be a small electrical box at the base of the board. undo the 4 bolts holding the cover onto the box with the socket wrench. Open that shit up and inside there will be a circuit board and a single pole single throw switch.
    The switch controls the lights. Flip that shit to cut the lights out. Make sure you do that first so nobody can see the billboard.
    Next comes the tricky part. Examine the circuit board carefully until you find the section containing resistors R11 thru R15. They should be wired in parallel. There are countless different types of billboard circuit boards, but no matter what type, resistors R11 - R15 always block the power to the internal linear actuators within the billboards support tower. Take your paperclip leads and connect the main power to the opposite side of the R15 resistor. This will bypass the resistor cluster and direct full power to the actuators, causing them contract which will lower the billboard to the ground.
    Now you can see why cutting the lights first is so important. You don't want the billboard lit up like a christmas tree on the fourth of july when you lower that shit or people will see it and call the popo.
    Once the billboard is lowered, simply climb up the ladder and get to work.
    Have fun, and don't forget to post pictures so we can crit your work!

    i just hoped on an SUV to the ladders then bombed fuck turning off lights, dont hesitate, get in, and get out. i was orginally gonna drop a fill but there was too many people beeping, and this was outside a night club, and there was a cop at the door so i had to get the fuck off.

    see...most billboards around here differ. none of that fancy shit, we just got billboards that are moderately high and are steadied by the big ass central poles, which the ladder is connected to, and the ladders are up high preventing you from getting ON the ladders, so in order to get to them, you have to know how to shimmy up the pole, then get to the ladder.

    Whenever I encounter a billboard like that I just set up my welder and torch a hole into the base. They usually keep a jetpack stored inside, so I just strap that shit on and fly up to the billboard.

    damn i never knew those could be lowered.
    And there are a few that would be easy to camp on since the support beams base is hidden by a hill.
    I'll see what happens though.
