Serves it's purpose

The light weight stand feels a little flimsy and we're still trying to find a better way to attach. Has a bit of a twist and is not as easy to fold as a circle. Caught an assistant about to bend it wrong. It totally does what we need it to and the delivery was almost next day, free of charge. The durability is still to be confirmed.

The image of the backdrop does not look like the actual product. I'm returning mine immediately.

Upon opening the backdrop was dismayed to find heavy creases. However, was able to steam out the center very well. Some wrinkles at edges (4 stars because of this only) which I will have to live with.

Great quality

A bit of an investment up front, but top quality. If you have limited studio space, need a mobile interview backdrop, or need a self-tape kit for auditions, nothing beats this pop-up kit! Love the neutral gray. Perfection.

Stand is Wobbly

The backdrop is great but when I use the stand it is wobbly and seems to be perhaps missing a piece that would make it hold up the backdrop more securely

I’m having trouble connecting the backdrop to the stand when hanging horizontally. When horizontal, there are no straps in the middle to connect to the stand, so how can it effectively connect and hang centered when there are no straps in the middle, only on either side of the middle? Thanks for your help!
Asked by: Hannah
This stand is made for Vertical orientation. You can use a 2nd stand for horizontal or get this stand with 2 clips B&H # IMLSRH

You can remove the background clip. This stand is sized for the background so use your judgement when using it for other purposes. Make sure not to exceed the weight rating.

How do you attach the border at the top of the ...

How do you attach the border at the top of the background to the spring loaded mechanism at the top of the stand? I have the velcro at the top of the background in a loop which I wrapped around the spring loaded mechanism as an alternative but the border is supposed to be held by the spring loaded mechanist and it does not want to go in there at least not flush.
Asked by: armand
I just make a loop with the velcro straps and hook it tightly behind the finger pulls. That works well. It is very tight trying to string them through the slot when mechanism is pulled back, so just hooking it over works the easiest for me. Good luck!
