Default 15mm (5/8ths?) memory/stop locks?

I still use my trusty old Pearl B855 cymbal boom stands, but I now want to lessen my footprint so I'm getting an Icon rack.

Pearl make 19 different 'stop locks' as they call them, but no mention of the dimensions!

The upper pipe of the booms measures something like 15mm or 5/8ths as far as I can tell.

Can anyone tell me which models I need? Thanks y'all.

I just ordered a SX-8 stop lock for the boom on an old Pearl stand. That might be what you need. Pics of the stand might help. Note that finding the right diameter clamp is only half the trick; you have to get one that's the right shape. Some of them are specially contoured to fit flush against the tilter mechanism.

Thanks people. Apparently the older B855 and the new BC2000 stands share some common parts, including the DC-627A stop lock which is 5/8ths along with another model, DC-578A, according to Gene over at the Pearl forum.

Judging by the Pearl parts catalogue 2012 the SX-8 looks bigger than I need and DC-625A looks to be 12mm only.

So far DC-627A are too small, probably 12mm, as are DC-625A.
The nearest so far are SX-8, but even they are about 1-2mm too small, I could maybe force them on but there would be no movement.

Any more suggestions folks?

SX-8 fits the Pearl 5/8" booms that I have perfectly, on both a B-800W and an older CH-85, which is similar era to a B-850W, which is about the same as the 855. Not sure how you've got a 5/8 boom that an SX-8 won't fit; mine slid on quite freely?
