    Manfrotto 062-2 reviews

    062-2 Background Paper Counterweight is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from tough to use at first, but worth it Maybe this thing will break in after a while---it's hard to force the plastic section over the paper and aluminum core at first. I suggest letting the plastic piece extend past the end of the core (and paper) on the ends by at least an inch; you won't miss the coverage in the middle of a 9 foot roll. Then you will have something you can grab onto when it's time to remove the plastic semi-sleeve. Once in place, it becomes both a weight that prevents curling, and keeps the end of the paper from tearing. It's also a handle by which to grasp the paper to pull a bit more off the roll. The instructions were not helpful. This thing is very helpful in lessening needless damage to paper, esp. in an educational setting where some users are not wise in the way of handling background paper set-ups.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must-Have If you have any sort of permanently mounted seamless paper system this product is a must. It makes lowering the paper as easy as it should be. Mounting this on the paper is actually pretty easy. One reviewer suggested making a V-fold about an inch up from the edge of the paper, setting the V in the C-shaped plastic and just snapping the pole in. I tried this and it worked like a charm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! I bought these because I hated the way my paper would continuously unroll. I had tried a number of ways to stop it...wish I would have found these earlier. I read the reviews and was a little hesitant because a few people mentioned that they were hard to put on. But I think they were super simple! And they work just as I had hoped they would. Kimberly

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product. Very useful. I found this a bit difficult to dis-assemble at first, but once separated, it was easy to use and very helpful in securing the end of the paper and prevented the inevitable curling. I would recommend this to those that are tired of using weights or light stands to keep the end of the roll in place...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Expected I was tired of using clamps and other methods to keep the seamless paper hanging neatly from the background pole. This is the perfect solution. It's not the easiest to attach to the paper roll but once it's on there, it's not going anywhere and makes rolling the paper back up easier as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product Much Needed I purchased with the vari drive system to hang backdrop paper. If I didn't have these, the paper would not hang correctly and would roll back onto the roll very loose. It was easy to add onto to the edge of the paper and created the perfect weight so the paper hangs nicely.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great, but expensive. The counterweight maintains tension on the roll of background paper, and prevents it from curling up when hanging down. When mounted level on the paper roll it also helps keep the paper roll straight when rolling the paper up after the photo shoot. Unfortunately, I found the task of attaching the paper roll to the counterweight to be extremely challenging and frustrating, and keeping it level was nearly an impossible task. The plastic outer casing on the counterweight that clamps around the paper is too small in diameter. In fact, I had to use a small flathead screwdriver to even separate it from the bar it attaches to. The super tight fit made it difficult to attach the counterweight to the paper roll, and to keep the counterweight level. One final note there were no product instructions in the package.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from it's not worth the price It's not worth the price. It's impossible to install. The plastic piece that goes over the silver bar is too stiff to go over. Other reviews say it takes time to break in, but for the price, it should be a turnkey solution. The best part is, if you don't like how it works B&H will charge you for return shipping. I'm disappointed with the product and B&H.
