Also on the previous link there is a nice way to avoid lose the difusers of the strobes.

Good job!

 

As ideia for next developmet/improvment, you should consider to add supports for strobes. But keep in mind that all the "system" needs to be stiff, as the strobes and long arms will transmit a lot of vibration when there are current or swiming.

Almost any magneg do. (if they are strong enough).

 

You can try with a pin fridge magnet. If it does not have power enough, you can buy some cheap on ebay


In Topic: Strobes - does this exist?

By you description, you want a trigger to be depoyed far way from the camera, to a set of strobes that are "connect in chain".

 

As you were asking for a strobe that has "test push button", I assume that the person that is going to trigger is prety close to the point you want to iluminate, and being so, you can use a small compact camera with flash on an housing to be the optical trigger to the other strobes (probably the flash from the compact camera does not iluminates has you want, but you can use it to trigger a triggerfish and/or a Inon type 4)

 

If you do not have a camera like that, you you can buy an old one on a few dollars/euros/pounds.
