It's just in case of hitting things with it. People do similar things on C-stands, the bottom of crane heads, etc.

hahaha of course.....best to get hit with a tennis ball in the head than the pole and also the sound will be less drastic...I always love to see how on film sets people just use common sense and whatever is at hand which is my way of doing things...thanks....its a good clip to watch by the way...those huge 65mm panavisions

Also don't forget about scratching the (i'm sure) very expensive wood if he happens to brush up against the wall.
