    You cannot adjust the width of the cross bar in small increments. Instead, it has 3 sections, and you can remove one of the sections to make it shorter. This is bad, because the width of my background is just longer than 2 sections, yet I don't have space for all 3 sections.

    I hate the mechanism for hooking up the 3 sections together. The screws are so flimsy, I was afraid that I would strip it using the included hex driver.

    Other than that, it's surprisingly small and light, which is good for photographers on the move, and also for storage. The compromise is stability. The two stands bend significantly after I hung up the background. But in the end, it works well for my purpose. I can fit it easily into the trunk of my car, and even used it as a normal light stand, since it's much smaller than my other stands.

    The bag is excellent, as it has separate compartments for storing the 2 stands and cross bar so that they don't scratch each others on the move. There's also a nifty little pocket for storing small studio things like background clips.

    I'm an aspiring photographer, shooting mainly for friends and family. I get the odd professional paid gig and bought this to have at the ready. Set up was very easy and intutive; fortunately so since no instructions came w/ the stand. I did find PDFs on Interfit's site.

    I found the piece to be solid enough for easy set up and take down, but probably not so much for hanging a full roll of background paper. I'm using a 5' x 36' roll of seamless white. The carrying bag is very convenient and also looks very sturdy.

    I would recommend this to others; it's a great stand for a very good price.

      I use this system for backdrop supports for weddings. It is sturdy and easy to assemble and attractive. It doesn't need to be hidden when covering with sheer fabric.

      Background Support System

      By Samantha R.

      from Pittsburgh, PA

      Comments about Interfit Small Background Support System (8.2' Width):

      I bought this system a week before I needed it. The representatives were VERY helpful and professional. I had my system in two days! As soon as I got it, I had to put it together. I was amazed at how easy it was to put together! It didn't take any time at all to have it all together and have a backdrop on it. It's very sturdy. It is also very light weight and I didn't have any problems carrying it around or taking it apart. The case that it comes in is very handy and I can add my tripod and other items in it. Love this system and very happy with my purchase!

        I use this product to hold up backdrop curtains for my open-air photo booth setup. It is super fast to set-up and tear down and A LOT more compact than lugging around pipe and drape. I highly recommend for anyone needing a simple backdrop solution.

            I read one review of this product where the reveiwer said it doesn't 'hold' anything. Well it won't if you try to dangle your body from it. But it will hold what it was built for like paper and cloth backgrounds. No problem.

            For how much it cost its great- easy to travel with, lightweight, and easy to assemble. I can assemble on my own in a short amount of time. Though I wish directions had been included as their seems to be a couple of extra parts (not sure if they're just spare or not). I really love that it comes with a travel bag- super convenient. It holds my drop fine so it does what it needs, its a bit flimsy but hey for the price it was at you can't expect it to be top of the line.

              With a very small higher education budget, our arts and events team needed a portable background to be able to shoot cast photos for playbills. When we did a search on background support systems, the B&H website came up. We were very happy with the price, the delivery time and the product. We will use this website again!

                            I've been using this stand with paper backdrops. Of course, I have not and will not attempt to hang the roll from it, but it works great just hanging a sheet of paper from it with some clamps! It's very easy to put together and take down. Small enough to travel with. Very useful considering the price you pay for it.

                                This works great. Light and easy to carry, yet, feel pretty sturdy. I would suggest buying a set of assorted plastic spring clamps for holding the backdrop.

                                      Make no mistake, this is a cheap background support. I've got them set up right now with some sound dampening convoluted foam on it and the center brace sags about 2 inches. I'm afraid if I breath on them wrong it might fall apart.That said the kit is only $ bucks and worth the money if you need something easy cheesy. I wouldn't recommend this for use outside but they are pretty portable. You do need an allen wrench to separate the center brace.

                                        I purchased this stand for a second stand (to hang Christmas lights, etc from) to use with my current stand. I love how light it is & easy to pack away. Will use as an on the go backdrop stand.

                                          It's is a great starting kit. Specially if you don't have a lot of space or like in my case, you turn another room in your house into a studio. Its bag makes it very practical to carry it with you when need it

                                          Bought this primarily for taking pictures of the grandkids. Pushed up the timeline for getting it when my wife asked me to take semiformal portraits of kids at a school Christmas program. Screwed in the brass "spigots" on top of the stands and had the stand and backdrop set up in maybe 5 minutes. 130+ pictures later it came down as quickly it went up. Pictures turned out great with my two-light and bounce flash setup. Only complaint I had was one of the velcro tabs on the bag became unstitched the first time I used it, but a little fabric glue should take care of that. Stands are lightweight and not aircushioned, but do the job. Bar sturdy enough for my muslin backdrop.And the bar has "screws" that screw out to make the section-to-section connections safer (supply your own allen wrench though) Overall I am happy with the quality at this pricepoint.

                                              This thing tipped over when I set it up with my seamless paper. If there was a baby posing under the seamless paper it could have really hurt them. I set it up correctly, but it just couldnt take the weight of the roll of paper. The top bar doesnt have anything to keep it on either, so you will have to buy some nuts or something for that part. I suggest putting something heavy like a weight on the bottom to keep it from tipping over.
