At a shoot awile back I saw this T-bar being held up by a c stand with a silk hanging from it. Whats the official name of the t-bar so I can type it in online and buy one? Along with the piece that slides into the grip head? I just want the T-bar not a whole frame.

The cross piece is just one side of a frame, probably 1" square pipe/tube for an 8'x8'.  The piece that slides onto the frame section is called something like a "pin for 1" square pipe/tube" according to this catalog:

There's a page here with pieces like that:

The end looks like a standard 5/8" c-stand pin.

Likely as not a 3/4" frame ear.

Manufactured by several grip companies, but all look similar.
