Manfrotto 046MCG overview

  • 1Description

The Manfrotto 046MCG Expan Drive Set with Gray Metal Chain allows easy raising and lowering of rolls of background paper without lowering the support stands. The system uses two expandable technopolymer inserts to support a single roll of seamless paper. Tightening each side expands the drive inserts from 1.8" to 3" to grip the roll solidly from the inside. One side has a large toothed gear to which a metal link chain affixes, permitting convenient raising and lowering of the background paper roll. The other side has an adjustable tension drag.

    Manfrotto 046MCG reviews

    046MCG Expan Drive Set with Gray Metal Chain is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from They assume you know how they work No instructions included or on their website. Maybe it is dumb simple but the expansion of the white plastic to fit in the tube properly is trial and error with no instructions anywhere. Seems a little odd?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great I use this system to hold a 9x20 vinyl background. With the background and with 21/4 steel pipe it weighs over 40 pounds total. I have it mounded on 2 auto poles and it is very sturdy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much better than plastic! The metal chains work so much better than the plastic ones especially on 12ft wide rolls of paper with the added weight.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not commercial grade These things work but they aren't commercial grade. Be gentle. Plastic chains and spindles. I will need to upgrade to a different system once these units start to break down

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Seamless Paper This products are part of a B&H Photo set: Manfrotto Complete DLX Auto pole 2/Expan Kit (BLK) B&H# MA2960DB. It works perfectly. I installed 3 Savage Seamless background paper (107x 12yds) by myself, now is extremely easy to use the chain to have the paper you want. Also you could use any paper size with this system. If 107 is either too big or small for you just order the right paper and this system will take care of it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well I use three of these drive sets with Manfrotto Auto Poles and their background holder hooks. The item is easy to use and really quite self-explanatory. No directions are required. The product seems reasonably durable, and I'm anticipating it will last a long time. You really do need the Manfrotto background paper weights for the setup to work as easily as you want it to. It's just one more thing to buy, but well worth it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for home studio These background hangers work fine. They are more fore an occasionally used home studio vs anything close to a pro studio. Not sure how long they will last. If I. Get a year out of them, I will be happy.
