    Background Stand for Illuminator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Hold... Needs Weight Great companion for 6X7 Westcott flexi background. Add a weight to this one (the bkgnd makes it more than a little front heavy)... a sandbag is perfect -- must have a sandbag unless you want the stand and background to topple over on your model. Note: the 6X7 has a little loop on one end -- you can hang this background over the top of the stand for quicker setup... clip it into place (top and bottom clips are easy to use, but you might need two people to manage a 6X7... we did) for more sturdy hold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good stand - great price! We use this stand to hang backdrops for video depositions, and they never let us down. They have a spring loaded clip on top that grips the backdrops perfectly and the base is not too wide, which suits our needs working in tight spots. They can get a little top heavy and want to fall over if you try to hang the backdrop too high (e.g. much higher than you see in the product photo), but that is easily solved with a little bit of weight on the legs, and for our purpose, we don't need to go that high anyway. For our needs, it's a perfect product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light duty stand I use it to support a Lasolite collapsible background for videoing depositions. Its only good for indoor work on a level floor. It was the only stand I could find that had a simple clip to hold a background. Its small foot print, light weight, and tiny folded up size makes it perfect for quick setup on locations with limited room. It's not durable so treat it with care. I thought about using a Mic stand but didn't want the extra weight or a light stand but they can't fit into tight spots and don't have any accessories to clamp background too, and their legs can impede the background from hanging properly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Incredibly Flimsy I had just been propping up my Illuminator Backround up against walls, but was using it at a wedding reception for the first time and thought this stand would be more appropriate. The background barely stayed on and was bowed the whole time. I think one would be better off with a heavy duty boom mic stand with some clamps at the hardware store. Love the background, not the stand.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leight weight and easilt transported I use this to hold up my collapsible Impact 5x7 background; one for holding up the vertical and two for holding it up in the horizontal position. Expect it to be a little flimsy BUT that is the whole point if you want something light weight to hold up the background without leaning against a wall. This is definitely not for outdoor I would imagine, even with sandbags, because the legs fold to sit flush against the ground and any uneven footing would make it quite unstable to hold up a backdrop. Also, wind would be a factor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stand, lightweight and portable. I use this to hold up my collapsible background. As such I was looking for something that was light weight and portable to go along with the portability of the background. This one fit the bill. I wish it were a little cheaper but the quality lets me know that I probably will not have to buy another one for awhile.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Stand Great Price and gets the job Done! Overall pleased with the stand. The clips are a little hard to clamp on sometime but other than that great product. If you are trying to photograph someone from head to toe the stands feet are hard to get out of the way and allow the stand to hit the floor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST HAVE for a collapsable background I will be using this stand in my line of work which requires fast set up and tear down. I like this stand for it's abillity to adjust easily and fold down to a very compact size for transportation
