      Comments about Impact Triple Background Hooks with Superclamps - Pair (Black):

      I use these devices on C-Stands for holding several Seamless Paper Backgrounds at the same time. This makes it easier to change from one backdrop to the other, it is made to hold 3.

      My only issue is with the hanging of 3 backgrounds and the Varidrive system. The chain touches the other 2 Varidrive mechanisms that are below the top, and so with the second position to the bottom holder. The system still works well but wish the top & bottom hangers were a little more separated so the chain would hang on all 3 without touching the other 2.

      But by far the most simplest way of hanging 3 backgrounds at once for changing your backgrounds out. I use a muslin backdrop on a bar above the top hanger, mounting the bar on the top post of the C-Stands used for support, so I can actually have 4 different set ups at the same time to choose from!

          This is a cheaper product then the Manfrotto hooks.
          works with my existing rollers.
          well worth the price I'll purchase an other set in a couple of months.

                  • With Auto Poles

                  Comments about Impact Triple Background Hooks with Superclamps - Pair (Black):

                  The clamps on this system are as good as anything out there. I own lots of super clamps, some from Manfrotto, some from other sources [@]These are built solid and well made. Nothing cheap here. The brackets are typical powdercoated steel and come with the neat spacer so everything works with my Impact auto poles. But they would work with any auto pole really. The first set ordered had to be returned because as is becoming typical with B&H, no order is truly without issues. The first bracket set was badly bent at the hooks making it unusable. I give it three stars for the continued trend in questionable service B&H provides. Seems every order has something wrong lately. Disturbing. Sure, B&H took care of the return, but I had to re-order and wait for the delivery once more and thats becoming a trend. Order, return, wait so if you decide to order you might as well add another 3 days to your expected wait time. It was never like that before.

                  As the title states.

                  Well built, but bit pricey in my opinion.

                    Decided to get these with the Superclamps. Mounted them on a 1" steel pipe from Home Depot and anchored in an Umbrella stand. The top is secured to exposed pipes running across my ceiling by radiator clamps. The height is easily adjustable.
