It does the job but not easily

I frequently use paper backdrops that I need to weigh down. Normally I just quickly attach some spring clamps to the bottom edge which works. The bar works too, although it can be a challenge to get the paper edge inserted. Plus the paper must be cut very straight. After trying it for a day I'll likely just go back to using clamps as it is so much easier & faster.

Elegant solution

I like the look of this paper edge weight over the others I have seen that are just a pipe with a slip-over plastic grip.� This provides an effective and attractive edge to the background edge.� I'm using mine on a paper roll and it fits perfectly.� It was a little tricky to get on by myself, but that said, I did it in about 1 minute while standing on a chair and leaving the paper on my stand -- guess it wasn't that hard.� It does come with a roll of white paper.� That's nice and all, but I would prefer to save money and just get the leader bar, especially since I am getting more than one.

Love it but...

I love this! makes my life much easier but I wonder why BH charges so much for shipping! I needed more of these but I decided to purchase from Savage website! This is a lightweight item!

Great product. Prevents the paper curling up and needing to be taped to the floor. I wish it didn’t have to come with a roll of white paper. I don’t need white paper. I want 3 more leader bars.

Works well, easy to install.

Package arrived on time. Was able to set up bar in less than a minute. Have now bought 3 as it is light and easy to install and use.

Looks great, and works well.

Would like to purchase one for each of my seamless paper rolls. Unfortunately, it comes bundled with a roll of white seamless paper. I would have given it a five star rating if it was available separately at a cheaper price.
