I will be working in the studio alone. Will I be able to change the backdrops alone? Can you explain how the top bar attaches?Woman, 5 feet 2 inches.
Asked by: Kim B.
Yes, I change it by myself all the time by alternating raising each side up about 6-12 inches at a time until I reach desired height. The top bar is adjustable width. You will remove the handheld screw mechanism on one side to slide seemless roll on and then retighten the mechanisms on each side to secure to the stands. It comes with clips to secure cloth backgrounds as needed. I use it for a portable set up and it's awesome. It has a little give at max height.

The width would be based on the crossbar, which would be 108 in this case.

How much weight can this support system hold? I have a back drop that weighs 8lbs (3.6kgs)...will this support that weight ok?
Asked by: Anonymous
This backdrop support system is capable of holding up to about 14lbs. I'd recommend using caution if you come across a backdrop heavier than that, but for 8lbs you would be fine with it.

Will this system support the Manfrotto 044 Background Holder Hooks and Super Clamps for 3 Backgrounds. I ask because I'm working on a budget and I have a rented artist space where having a ceiling is out of reach even for the extension system of the Manfrotto Auto Poles.
Asked by: Carey
No it is not designed to hold that much weight.
