First, don't worry about getting pipes for each paper roll. You only need them if you are using different widths of paper. The instructions suggested aluminum pipe, which my husband thought was WAY too heavy so we went with indoor/outdoor PVC. I got one for each roll, but since I hung two 107" rolls and one 86" roll, I only needed one pipe for the 86" roll. The expanders work just fine on the paper tubes that come on the Savage seamless paper. And for the other, I just used gaffer tape to tape the free edge of the 86" roll to the pipe and then with my husband's help, rolled the tape onto the pipe after the system was installed. Easy peasy.
Now, our house is older and finding studs has always been hit or miss. You can't afford to miss the studs for this baby. Our handyman friend suggested first taking 2'X2' pieces of 3/4" plywood and screwing these into the studs. Then we could attach the wall brackets onto the plywood with long wood screws where we needed them for the 107" rolls. It worked beautifully. And since I still had some wall paint, once it was painted, you didn't even notice the plywood.
Some people have mentioned that the paper rolls down too easily. Well there's a screw on the side opposite the chain, and it's a tension screw. If you screw that in tightly, the paper is pretty secure and doesn't just go crazy. It's way better than it was on my stand!
My one wish is that I'd had them install it just a little higher. My studio is in my home, and my husband thought he'd need a little room at the top to lift the roll onto the bracket. As a result, if you hang the rolls where the paper comes down behind the lower rolls, you can see the lowest/front roll at the top of a tall person standing up. I may reverse the rolls to see if it works better to come off the front.
I used clamps at first to weight down the edge of my paper to keep it from curling, but I really don't use them now. The system is wonderful. And after my husband's remark, I'm adding some pictures so others can see how he and our friend installed it. Once they figured out how to do it, it went really quickly.
I like it so much, I ordered a 2nd unit, which I plan to install for use with muslin backdrops. Since the muslins do not come on cardboard rolls, I will buy 10' long PVC, aluminum or cardboard pipes/rolls and use them with the muslin. Home Depot has cheap PVC 10' pipes for $3.50 each. I'll tape the muslin to the pipe and use it the same way I do the paper.
If you need to conserve space and want ease and speed, this is a great unit at a great price.
***For all future buyers, you need 3, 10 foot by 2 inch PVC pipe, aluminum or cardboard tube to put backdrops up with. Now I used PVC pipes from home depot which were about $6.29 each. I then put the tube through the stitched end of my muslin backdrops and secured it with velcro strips on the inside of the stitching and outside of tube. This worked great!!
***I also needed different hardware then what came with this item. I have drywall/sheetrock thats hollow and needed good anchors to secure the backdrop mount to the wall. I went to ACE hardware and bought butterfly hooks that came with screws and it worked GREAT!!
All in all, after I had the correct hardware and pvc pipes, everything went smoothly. The roller system is awesome!!
Any questions please let me know.
