Stanchion: Stanchion is the technical word for those ubiquitous uprights that organize and separate people in lines (queues), like those back and forth folded lines that I associate with amusement parks, especially Disneyland where long lines have been raised to an art form. In dairy farms, stanchions are the vertical bars that hold the cows in front of the feed trough.
Edgar handed up the old broken sink and the pruning shears and they leaned two of the stanchions in a corner.
