Impact Background Triple Hooks - Pair (Black)

This is a pack of two black Background Triple Hooks from Impact. These hooks are used to hold up three rolls of background paper. When secured to your wall with the included mounting hardware, these hooks become a permanent installation to your studio. Your background paper can then be hung using either a simple optional cross bar or Impact's optional Varidrive units that come with expandable cores and chains. These hooks will hold 3 rolls of 9 feet x 12 yards of seamless paper.

Impact Varidrive with Black Chain

Part of the Varidrive system for easy raising and lowering of seamless paper, the Varidrive with Black Chain from Impact has adjustable inserts that tightly grip each side of the various sized seamless paper rolls. The Varidrive is then inserted into hooks like the Impact ME-122, ME-123 or the triple hook VPD-H3W. With the exception of ME-122 which fits in a Super Clamp, the other hook sets are bolted onto the wall.

You can load three rolls for example, onto the VPD-H3W. Each roll requires another Varidrive kit. You can purchase color-coded units to clearly identify which roll you're raising and lowering. The Varidrive can handle seamless rolls measuring up to 9' wide and weighing up to 22 lb. To strengthen large coreless rolls and prevent bowing, Cross Poles (VPC-5) are available from Impact.

Impact Varidrive Reviews

works well but

By Max

There is no place to break the chain. Therefore I found it impossible to put all three chains on the same end. It must be two on one end and one on the other. That will not work in my case so it became only two usable rolls for me.

For the price it is great.

I installed it with three 10x12 backdrops hanging on it. Mounting it to the wall was easy and I had no problem finding some pvc pipe that I could use for rollers. The chains are a little wonky and you will need to provide weights to hang from the bottoms of the backdrops.

Makes changing backgrounds easy.

This has been a great add to our temp studio, so we can quickly change backgrounds. We only had for a month or so and work great. I heard after awhile the cardboard tubes start to bow if you don't have metal tubes inside. We however haven't add any problems with that yet.

Good solution

Very good kit for the price. I suggest always buying metal chains. These are not quite as nice as more expensive versions; however, work very well.

Quality and Strong.

The wall mount kit is awesome. Makes putting up and taken down backdrops quick. My only issue is I am short. So once I bring the backdrop down, I have an issue locking it from rolling. I went from 20 min to setting up a new color went to 5 min. For maternity shoots I like to give the mom be as many breaks as I can so 10 min. Water break for mom and me a water break for 5 min to talk to them more and learn a bit more of their wants. Great buy for anyone shooting studio.

These are awesome! Great for a 1-person crew

I used to setup backdrop stands over and over, and that was a pain doing it by myself. This has totally solved that issue and now I can up and shooting super quickly

I own 2 of these. One of them the tension on the chain to unroll is very tight--I have to pull hard to bring the paper down. On my other one, the tension is so loose it doesn't want to stop unrolling. This makes me believe that there is a way to adjust the tension but I can't figure it out. To be clear, the entire roll and chain/gear/pulley keep unrolling, it's not just the paper tube not being tightly attached to the rods. How do you adjust?
Asked by: James
The side that doesn’t have the chain, there is a knob that loosens and tightens. It’s where the bracket mounts on the arm.

If I have a core with a painted standard background attached, will this hold the weight of the canvas background?
Asked by: earl
What you get in the kit is strong enough to support a painted canvas background. As you say, the variable would be the strength of the core. Good luck!

Does buying the metal chain version really make a difference?
Asked by: mark
Yes. Both systems work, but the metal chain has better build and durability and has decent tension. Also, I feel the weight of the chain helps the chain hang better and straighter. The plastic chain helps if you are on a budget, but it can seem too light at times. It basically comes down to personal preference.

question

So, just to be clear, this will hold 3 107 rolls of paper? Those rolls seem pretty heavy and this doesn't look strong enough to hold three.
Asked by: Steve E.
Hey! I have this kit and it does hold 3, it works really well actually. Very happy with the set up!
