With the Triple Mount, you can, as a cost saving measure, convert your regular light stands and use them as background support stands. The two adapters have some unique features, including dual compatibility which allows you to mount the unit on either the regular light stand or a background support stand. The adapters also feature three safety caps that can be screwed-on to prevent the crossbars from sliding off.
Rather than buying a whole new background support system you only use several times a year, you can, instead, purchase and mount the adapter on any light stands and can still get the same quality results as if you were using the background support system. If you already have two light stands or background support stands and need to assemble a single crossbar background support system, the 4214A Universal Crossbar could be one of your options.
