The Altman Two Leg Light Duty Folding Stand is actually more of a base similar to Altman B-10 and B-18 bases. While telescoping sections may be added to the base (see Altman 524-18 and 525-18 on their site) they are usually used alone. The base makes a sturdy mount for lights to be used at ground level for special effect. This Altman FLD-STAND-14 is fashioned from 2 pieces of angled steel joined by a center bolt which allows it to fold down to a single 18" section. Weight capacity is approximately 25 lb.
