Background Stand Kit
Background Stand Kit
Portable and easy to setup. At 12lbs, this backdrop stand can be easily transported and setup on location. While it is always easier to have two people to setup a backdrop stand, this one can be managed by one person if necessary. A sectioned carry bag is included to make this kit ready to go.
Stronger crossbar. This stand uses a 4 section interlocking crossbar for strength and durability. Unlike telescoping crossbars which can sag when fully extended, the indexed connectors are strong and can easily support a standard 107"x36' paper roll as well as vinyl or cloth backdrops. The crossbar can be used in either a 2 section, 3 section or 4 section configuration depending on the width of your backdrop.
Each section of the Background Stand Cross is secured by a ball and spring that requires you to depress before it will unlock itself. Just align the bar with the ball and spring to the hole and it'll automatically click into place.
The stands. The air-cushioned stands control the speed of the drop when raising or lowering the crossbar to ensure that your backdrop will not come crashing down. This will also greatly extend the life of the stands. Metal clamps on the uprights are more durable than the plastic clamps found on competing stands. The stands have a standard 5/8" tip, so they can serve as excellent light stands when not being used to hold a backdrop with a weight limit of 10 lbs. The base of the stands is wide enough to securely hold up backdrops or a light with a softbox.
Stands can be used as light stands when not using as backdrop stands

What else needs to be said!
Well constructed and strong. I particularly like the unique way the crossbar is connected - through a light stand connector. Also, great service.
Everything was perfect EXCEPT the actual ordering process. I had to enter my information 3 times before it was put through. Painful. Perhaps it had to do with Google or do not know what but it WAS painful.
The backdrop itself seems solid. If not being used the stands can be used as light stands. Easy to set up. Thank you.
Arrived super fast, and well made & easy set up. Will also use as extra light stands - very happy ð
