    I purchased these casters for my Westcott Spiderlites. I was tired of dragging my lights around the studio floor. This set of casters was the perfect thing. Light moves quicker and easier. I also found that when shooting handheld you can just nudge the light with your foot to position it and not have to put your camera down. Good investment.

    kind of sticky

    the wheels don't move as freely as I would like, they need some gentle nudging to get them facing in the correct position but make moving a boom a must.

        Comments about Impact Caster Set for Light Stands with 25mm Tubular Leg Ends:

        I used these with the heavy light stand mounted with Profoto B1 head & softbox which make it easy to move around in the studio on hard surface or very short carpet. Easy to put on and remove. The only issue is the screw for tightening the caster on the stand leg. The threads are in the aluminum casting and not machined very precisely. One came in defective (no thread - hole oversized). But B&H made it easy to replace. Great service.

        These are fine if you are working with VERY light stands and lights. Any weight at all and they don't roll well.

              Comments about Impact Caster Set for Light Stands with 25mm Tubular Leg Ends:

              I thought that they would be a little heavier/solid than they are. I put them on a regular Impact brand lightstand and had an Alien Bee light and a large softbox on it. Used for three days straight, 7 hours a day and never had a problem. I don't think they would work on the heavier Avenger lightstands but then again, if you own those, you would not be buying these anyway!

                    My first set of casters had a problem (one of the screws was stripped when it arrived and wouldn't grab the leg). B&H replaced it at no charge. The second set seems fine. They fit on my Impact light stand and supply the mobility I wanted. I haven't used them enough to know if they hold up well, and I will be watching closely since I had the issue with the first set.

                      We roll C stands all over the place on some shoots and then fine tune the position most times. These wheels make all of that easy. Except for no locking capability, good design and good fit. Our Impact stands still fold nicely even with the wheels installed.

                                    Any one trying to move a large stand with a boom extended and a heavy light on the end knows how awkward it can be. You can easily have the whole thing tip over. Theses casters solve the problem. Easy to make small adjustments on the set without risking any crashes. Just wish you could lock the wheels when you wanted to. Overall, a good buy.

                                      These casters are well built but only works if they are installed perpendicular to the ground! if thay are in angle your light stand will not move freely at all.

                                      We put these on a Savage heavy duty stand.

                                      The wheel angle is optimized for a different leg spread than our stands provide with the legs all the way out, so to get them to roll, we had to bring the legs in a couple of inches.

                                      The tightening knob on the underside keeps the stand from folding completely, so we had to remove the wheels to take them out of the studio.

                                      I expected that getting over cords and backdrops was going to be hard (since the stand we put the wheels on carries two heads, a boom and counterweights, two 20x30 soft boxes and three small sandbags). My expectations have been exceeded so far, and even with a difficult set of obstacles to roll over, this set up sure beats banging my lens on a stand from trying to lift and carry it in a hurry.

                                              I had been considering these casters for sometime but was always putting off getting them. But I recently read a portion of a book by Scott Kelby and in it he urged his readers to put their lightstands on wheels. And he was right!

                                              What difference it makes. I did not realize how resistent I was to just moving my light a couple of inches but now with these casters I just do it! You should too!

                                              These casters are perfect for the light stands holding our Westcott TD6 Spiderlights with softboxes. No more gingerly picking up the stands to move them; the casters allow us to reposition our lights with ease. A great deal!
