If I take out the bottom screw to remove the legs for packing, will they go back on easily?
Asked by: Cliff
No. The bottom screw only loosens the legs to fold up. If you want to remove the legs it's called 'turtle base'. I recommend turtle base over these because I bought two of these and now I want turtle base.

Is there a difference in robustness, quality or a different diameter for riser between this model B756040 and the c stand BH #MALSCP40B • MFR #B339758 ?
Asked by: Jean
Both these models have the same capacities. They perform differant functions. The B756040 is a Sliding Leg C-Stand allowing it to be mounted on uneven surfaces such as a stair case. The B339758 C+ Stand has a removable riser that attaches to the base with a 1-1/8" Junior pin. When riser is removed the base turns into a very low sturdy stand offering a Junior Reciever.

Why doesn’t my profoto strobe go onto the end of the arm but goes onto the stand fine? Never had this happen before even with the exact same products
Asked by: Adrienne
Another note: if your stand is the painted black version, as you know usually C-stands have that tighter fit but add some paint on the same stand and it’s even tighter, if you can get it on at all.

question

does this have everything i need to attach a moonlight to this stand? i am not understanding how a strobe would attach to this? please help.
Asked by: Paul B.
The Moonlight Strobe I found online mounts to a standard 5/8" Baby Pin. The top of this stand, where the head and arm are attached is a 5/8" Baby Pin, you could mount the strobe directly to the stand this way. If you wanted more elevation, or you would like to offset the strobe you would attach to the back of the C-stand arm which is the same 5/8" dimension.

question

I just got this and I love it. I want to know, if I unscrew the screw that connects the nondetachable legs to the stand, would I be able to use detachable legs with the same stand or are the stands with the turtle base designed specifically for those type of legs?
Asked by: Emmitt S.
Depends on the turtle legs.. some are built for specific diameters (like the matthews turtle base) and others can accommodate larger sttands. best solution? get the turtle base c stand kit specifically machined to work together.

will this fit the kupo runway stand base?
Asked by: Michelle
The stand has attached legs, one being a "rocky-mountain" adjustable leg for uneven terrain. The stand is complete and does not disassemble to mount into a turtle base or runway stand.
