    buy the one with superclamps even if you don't need the calmps on the hooks, it's cheaper then buying the clamps apart and you can never have enough superclamps!
    The system itself is easy to use and does the job. But the plastic clips at the bottom fall off very easily. secure them with welcro or screws.
    I use the hooks on normal lighting stands and it works like a charm.

    This hook can only take support rod of diameter about 17mm or 2/3 inch. If you use Manfrotto Expan system, that should be no problem. But I wanted more traditional hanging system for additional strength, so I decided to use 1/2 inch electric conduit pipes, whose outer diameter is about 17mm or 2/3 inch. You can't use 3/4 inch or thicker pipe. Also, 1/2 inch black pipe (for gas lines) will not fit, as they are thicker walled.

    1/2 inch conduit pipe is okay but I wish they made it to take 3/4 inch pipes for additional strength.

    The reason why I don't like Expan system, where seamless rolls sag at the middle due to lack of core support (Expan supports cardboard core at the ends but not in between).

          One clamp can hold 15-kg. The clamps have the versatility, and can fit different arrangement. I see many uses aside from using the background holders.

                We use these in our small space studio w/ autopole
                This is so much better than a backdrop stand. The three hooks allows for 3 roller systems to be added.

                      I purchased this item to clamp to a couple of autopole-like poles that I picked up at [@]. They work very well. Clamps are AWESOME, and brackets are very useful for hanging 3 backdrops at once.My only complaint is with the little plastic clips at the bottom of the brackets. They don't stay in place, and would be easy to lose. In my opinion, these should snap into place, or have a little screw to keep them there. I wrapped mine with a bit of gaff tape. That's a liveable workaround for now.The notches in the brackets are a bit small for anything other than a premade crossbar or xpan thing. I use mine with some 3/4" electrical conduit, with a bit of a crimp in each end.

                            This hook set was very easy to install and seems very sturdy. However, one of the sets was bent in such a way that the lower bracket does not stay in place unless all three rolls are installed. As I need to use this with only one roll on it from time to time (to give maximum height for green screen use), the bracket falls out if I do not tape it in place.

                            I found this to be an easy purchase. It fits securely to any autopole. The only downside I have is it only comes with two (2) clamps when it needs four (4). After assembly I put my backdrop on it and the hooks began to bow. =?

                              This hook can only take support rod of diameter about 17mm or 2/3 inch. If you use Manfrotto Expan system, that should be no problem. But I wanted more traditional hanging system for additional strength, so I decided to use 1/2 inch electric conduit pipes, whose outer diameter is about 17mm or 2/3 inch. You can't use 3/4 inch or thicker pipe. Also, 1/2 inch black pipe (for gas lines) will not fit, as they are thicker walled.

                              1/2 inch conduit pipe is okay but I wish they made it to take 3/4 inch pipes for additional strength.

                              The reason why I don't like Expan system, where seamless rolls sag at the middle due to lack of core support (Expan supports cardboard core at the ends but not in between).

                                  I purchased this to add to my portable stand so that it would give room for an additonal paper roll. It makes it really heavy on the stand and I think it would be better mounted on the wall.

                                    buy the one with superclamps even if you don't need the calmps on the hooks, it's cheaper then buying the clamps apart and you can never have enough superclamps!
                                    The system itself is easy to use and does the job. But the plastic clips at the bottom fall off very easily. secure them with welcro or screws.
                                    I use the hooks on normal lighting stands and it works like a charm.

                                    Another Quality product from Bogen / Manfrotto. I use this holder and super clamps with the autopoles 2 and find them very well made. The plastic clips used for bottom support should be metal or at leaset secured to the bracket by screws. If used in a permanent set up situation maybe ok but when going from location to location, those plastics clips are gonna get lost. Fortunately for us, upon doing our final check after a recent location teardown we found one of the plastic clips on the floor. We have since applied plastic silicone to the clips to somewhat secure them in place.
