Broken on arrival and clearly very poor quality.
on February 11, 2015
I ordered this after reading a number of good reviews on the product. It arrived on a Monday and I had corporate head shots that I needed to take the next day. I opened and looked over the item in some detail but didn't put the entire thing together before using it for the first time. I did discover on first inspection that the cross bar was bent in such a way that the two tubes could not connect. My husband hammered it out with a hammer and it worked well enough. Then, when I got to the site to set up the next day, one of the stands literally fell apart. Springs were coming out of the tubes, these metal clips that were needed to make the stand stay in the position you selected fell out and thus the stand would not stay at the height you wanted. It was flimsy as all get out. The other stand was functional but the plastic ring around the base of the stand was cracked in half. It was shocking how poorly made this thing was. I would not recommend it by a long shot.
