Is anyone using this to hang 53" seamless? I'm ...

Is anyone using this to hang 53" seamless? I'm assuming it would require using only one of the poles? If that is the case can each part of the pole be used for two separate 53" seamless paper rolls?
Asked by: Rick
I use it to support a roll of 107" seamless that had a damaged cardboard core and it works well. I don't see why it wouldn't work with a 53" roll with one pole section.

question

Did anyone else have an issue with the pole not being wide enough in diameter? I'm unable to fit my Drive sets into it making it really hard to use!
Asked by: Amy L.
loosen the drive sets more (I assume you're talking about the part of the wall/ceiling pulley system that you insert into the metal tube). Loosen them more and they should fit, then just tighten back up again.

question

Where can i get muslin that is 100 to 106 wide, so it is not too wide for the 106 pole?
Asked by: Robert
This pole is used with a fabric that is exactly the same width along with a Impact Wall Mounting Kit for Holding Three Seamless Backdrops B&H # IMVPDH3WK to allow the background to be pulled up or down easily. As for fabric backgrounds within that size, you can find those here: https://bhpho.to/2G8iTtC

question

Has anyone ever used this Cross Pole on a Step and Repeat Vinyl banner? I have an 8'x8' banner with pole pockets on the top and bottom that I would love to put on my Impact Triple hooks, as opposed to leaving it on a banner stand. First of all, I'm wondering if it would fit the pocket at the top (which supposedly has a 2 diameter) and secondly, if the vinyl will roll around the pole itself in the same manner as the paper backdrops?
Asked by: Robin S.
Being that the diameter of this pole is just less than 2, it could fit a background with 2 pole pocket sewn into it. The main purpose of this pole is to add a core to un-cored rolled backgrounds and allow the Impact Varidrive system to be inserted on both ends to pull it up or down. You can also place this pole onto a set of Impact U-Hooks as well.

question

Hi, not sure if this was answered already, but will these fit inside the 107 Savage cored seamless paper rolls?
Asked by: Russ K.
Fits inside the 107" savage rolls to help support and prevent sag. Works like a charm. Just need to use some paper on the ends or the material that prevents carpet from sliding to prevent the roll from spinning around the pipe. Works really well though.

question

Has anyone used this to support 12' cored rolls of seamless, does it support the weight? Was hoping to put 3 sections together to make it work for the wide rolls.
Asked by: David
I have not used it for the wide rolls, but it's plenty strong for the regular size. I would say try it, then we'll all know.
