This is a very sturdy quality product for the price, I highly recommend. You can add stability by adding some sandbags or cheap wrist/ankle weight straps from the exercise store. I was expecting cheap quality due to price but was pleasantly surprised.

(Update) Well it has been a while but the locks stopped working on the top sections of the stands and I need to use gaffer tape to keep them up. I recommend something a little better made.

I purchased this background stand as an addition to my equipment. I already had on background stand and was looking to add another one so I could shoot using 2 different backgrounds. I must say This is a excellent background support stand. Very durable and is spring loaded. A solid choice for the money!

great price for a heavy set of background stands.
Update. I've used it on three jobs and it's falling apart. The locks don't hold and with the weight of a large roll it's useless. Also, the crossbar bends and the carrying backs lasted like 5 minutes.

I searched several products before I landed on this one. My concern from other reviews was how sturdy the stands would be and especially the crossbar. Mine arrived today and I must say I am more than satisfied. The crossbar looks and feels like it would hold me up, but I'm not going to try that. The stands were very sturdy and operate very easily.

Needless to say, I am very satisfied and would recommend this to anyone looking for a backdrop support stand system!

Since this is my first background stand, I do not have much to compare it to, but I received my purchase yesterday and wasted no time in getting it out of the box and placing a muslin backdrop on it right in my living room.
Each stand comes in it's own bag (as pictured in the stock photo). The crossbar does not have it's own bag but there is plenty of room to split it into two and put one in each bag for travel.
I was very surprised at how lightweight the stands are, and then even more how sturdy they were once I got them set up. My 2 year old son was playing around them, driving his cars up one of them and they barely budged. The stand even held up with my son decided to lean against the backdrop.
Assembly was simple. I did have to push one of the crossbar end pieces back into place, but that was minimal effort.
The poles and crossbar are spring loaded and that makes adjustments really easy for even one person.
I will be looking into other PBL products based on my purchase.

In a time of made in china garbage being put out onto the market, this was a welcome surprise when I unboxed this support system. The cheap pressed Chinese rivets weren't on this system. It actually makes use of nuts and bolts!

I used this support system with a 10x20 diamond cloth with no weights on the support stands, and didn't have any problems with adequate support. Never once was I worried about the unit tipping over onto the subject.

Now for the made in China parts included. Yes. There were some. The bag to carry the system in does have a made in China label on it. The bag works just fine for transporting the system. If I needed to move it around more I might look for a better method. For the most part, the bag is just used for storing the supports and keeping everything together in my studio.

Simply put; this support stand just makes you feel good using it, as along as it holds up. 3 uses and it's done! No, I haven't contacted the supplier to find out about repair or replacement, so I won't speak on that. But the locking spring just stopped securing the extension once locked. So, the clamp locks, but doesn't hold the pole in place. This really hurts my feelings bad, considering there was no warning; just didn't work while I was on a location setting up (not cool). Hopefully it will be an easy fix, or will be replaced. Otherwise, I just would not recommend this support system. Can't give anything over 3 stars that breaks, I don't care how great it seems.

**Update**
Contacted the supplier, and they asked for me to send it back. This is a hassle considering what I'm dealing with; awkward shipping dimensions (try to find a box for this). Felt very rushed dealing with customer service...I won't bad mouth them cause they said they would remedy the occurrence. But, the good news for me is after I examined the stand closely, I was able to fix it myself. The clamps have hex nuts, it doesn't look like at first glimpse. After looking at how the others were adjusted I was able to re-tighten the clamps properly, and now all is well. So, I would probably say, that this could happen again or with the other clamps at some point, so I'll just keep my socket handy just in case. It's a good system, but durability is still in question.

This kit exceeds it's price value. Although it's not sturdy enough for heavy muslins or vinyl backgrounds, paper rolls and thin cloth are ok. Comes with everything you need (minus the backdrop) all stored in a carry case. Best 12 ft. backdrop kit I've seen under $100! My only complaint is that I wish the crossbar segments would lock in place more secure.
