I have this stand. I just realized that the 2 top poles are supposed to be locked or secured together somehow. I see holes for screws but nothing inside them. Any ideas??
Asked by: Jenolyn
There is only a hex screw which allows the two sections to fasten together. The hole at the top portion would not need a screw.

I have the Godox AD400Pro Witstro All in One Flash and a 7' Impact PLM. Would these items work with this stand, and do I need other attachments?
Asked by: Elizabeth
It will work better if you add Impact Swivel Umbrella Adapter B&H # IMCA108 under the Ad400pro to hold the umbrella.

Is there a shorter top section that you can buy? (without using a hacksaw to cut it to make it shorter.)

The Manfrotto 231B Column Stand with Sliding Arm (8') comes only in that complexation. As an alternative there is a slightly lower one at 7.25ft Impact Column Stand with Sliding Arm https://bhpho.to/3tLAz84

question

Would this stand and two of the spring clamps serve to hold a camera on one of the grips, and a laptop table and laptop on the other?
Asked by: Tobias W G.
It is a beast, I have done exactly what you asked. In addition to many other creative things. Using super clamps I put a rod on a clamp and hung multiple lamps off the rod. I have a heavy monfrotto weight clamped to the bottom of the upright to keep it balanced. I have built trays that carry laptops. I use multiple clamps on the upright. Superclamps are an alternative to the spring clamp. When you get too much load on a spring clamp it can slip. In that case use a superclamp to support it or just use a superclamp.
