The sturdy, collapsible Background Stand is made of lightweight aluminum. The unique design allows the stand to hold a collapsible background off the floor oradjusts so the tripod legs collapse outward allowing the background to come all the way down to the floor.

The clips that hold the screen in are difficult to open for set up and removal of the collapsible background. Also, does not hold the background in a flat position, creating unwanted shadows. Probably should have two on hand to make the screen stay flat.
I purchased this stand because I already owned a collapsible background and needed a portable way of setting it up without dragging a lot of heavy gear with me. It's very light weight, and while I have not set it up outside in windy conditions, it worked more than adequate inside. Than background is 5x7 and the stand is tall enough to keep it off the ground a foot or two and position it without fear of tipping over. It comes with the clips you need to grab the background. From the stand to the clips, everything feels sturdy. I would recommend purchasing this for anyone needing a traveling stand for a collapsible background. I didn't rate this five stars only because it does not come with a case/ bag to carry it in, other than that it's perfect
Great holder for flexible backdrops for portrait work.
I bought the Westcott support stand to go with their small collapsible grey background. The stand folds up to a small size,is very light weight [but stable] and easy to use. It also came in very handy the other day when I had to shoot historical pictures under glass [client insisted they could not be removed] I used the stand [clip on the top and floating clip on bottom of the stand] to hold a white reflector board to minimize reflections. Worked fantastic -I can see using this stasnd for several things. Great product!
