We use the stands to hold a 6x9 Lastolite collapsible screen for some commercials we shoot. The stands did the job, no problem. I would have given 5 stars, but the clips made to hold the screen are difficult to clip onto the screen! When you do finally get them on, they hold GREAT! Good idea but hard for weak hands!

I bought this stand to hold my Lastolite foldable backdrop. I really expected this stand to be a bit stronger/sturdier. I've only used it once so far and it worked but I'm concerned about how long it will last. It was also very difficult to hook the backdrop to it.

Comments about Lastolite Bracketed Stand for Collapsible Backgrounds - 7.3' (2.2m):

Helpful to hold background screen. I hang off the bracker instead of inserting screen in bracket as I find bracket hard to use

      I've been using this for 2 days to hold up a Lastolite LB56FM 5x6 collapsible background. It's working great so far with no issues. Lightweight, but strong enough to hold the backdrop. Folds up easily. It has some clippy things but I haven't been using them, I just drape the hook of the backdrop over the hanger at the top and it stays up. The stand is branded Manfrotto.

            When I received the shipment of the Lastolite background and stand I was really pleasantly surprised. The stand was a Manfrotto 3355, I'm a big fan of Manfrotto products. The stand works great and holds the background firmly in place. I use it mostly for headshots, when I do use it and their are kids around I use a sandbag for extra support. The clips are easy to use and hold the background tight.

              Comments about Lastolite Bracketed Stand for Collapsible Backgrounds - 7.3' (2.2m):

              I now have 3 Lastolite Collapsible backgrounds and I had been using one of my regular background stands with a hand clamp. It worked, but I wanted a better solution and this is it! Folds to a very compact size, so it easily fits into my "GO BOX" (unlike my regular stands). The clamps work very well and it is sturdy and sure-footed. Definitely needs a sandbag when outdoors, but I don;t know why you WOULDN'T use a sandbag with any other type of stand.

              I just got it, so I can't talk definitively about longevity, but it certainly seems to be very well-made and sturdy. Even if it only lasts for two years, it's more than worth it for the price. Awesome value, awesome utility.

                I decided to keep these even if the clips on these stands only fit the Lastolite 5x6 black velevet collapsable backgound. I bought 3 of the 5x7 lastolite urban collapsable backgrounds, and I can't get the clips to grab the hoop. The hoop is just to thick. The clips will also grab the hoop of the Impact 5x7 white background nicely.

                  This Manfrotto Lastolite stand is well designed for supporting portable backgrounds.

                  It is compact when folded up and very lightweight, making it very easy to take out to jobs. It seems quite stable when the legs are fully out.

                  Note: This stand is only designed to hold backgrounds and reflectors perpendicular to the floor. It is not designed to tilt a reflector at other angles.

                  Although the stand is marketed as Lastolite, the brand on it is Manfrotto. The quality seems good.

                    Works as described. Is stable and quite portable.

                    Only little issue is that the top clamp is not removable from the top stage and kinda sticks out a little when you collapse the stand. Not a big deal but something to fix for the next version.

                      background. They are lightweight and collapse into a small package. It's best to use two of them on the the 5x7 backgrounds and larger.

                          When I ordered this I was not aware that it is a Manfrotto product. Very good quality for a lightweight compact stand. It packs small and ships well. Sturdy enough to hold the screen just fine. I'm really pleased.

                            I use two of these to hold up my Lastolite 6x9 folding backdrop. The tripods do a great job of supporting my backdrop and when I'm done they fold down to a very compact (portable) size. The quality of build is great and I plan to use these for many many years to come!

                            I use this to hold my collapsible background. Very sturdy, easy to use. It is well made and I'm very happy with this purchase.

                                Very lightweight and clever. Great that it's so portable but I suspect that I will have to pay close attention to not abusing this stand as it is not a heavyweight/heavy duty unit. It is a great design for portability, however. We'll see how well it holds up over time. So far though, so good.
