Yes, no instructions. ... my box of cereal did not haave instructions either... yes, it is about as easy as pouring cereal.

You will have to escuse the length of this review. Im always nervous about buying bargain gear when so little has been written about them, so when i review i try to be as clear as possible.

For the price this is one heck of a deal.

Easy to setup, it extends to a full width and height of 9 feet.

SETUP:

The crossbar is comprised of 4 segments which interlock. If you want to have this narrower than 9 feet you can just keave out a crossbar and bring it down to about 6.5 - 7 feet, or leave out 2 crossbars an dit will be a little under 4 feet wide

Each stand is spring cushioned and is easy to foldup and expand out.

The entire thing can be extended to 9 feet by a single person, first put up the stangs,. then put on the crossbar and secure it with the wingnut and washer, then raise up the top column on either side, then raise up the middle column on either side.

Build Quality:

I believe you are getting more than you pay for with this. It is not quite a high end professional studio backdrop stand, but for the price i dont think you can beat this. The stands are pretty stable. If working with this outside you might want some sandbags or some stakes if you are on soft ground.

The castings arent totally polished up, meaning you see some casting leaves sticking out, but this doesent affect the performance. You will want to make sure you pick up a little socket so you can tighten the grippers as overtime im sure they will lax a bit. I am sorry but i dont know the size, but i know the tightener that came with my manfrotto 190Pro tripod is a perfect fit.

When I first set it up I was a little worried about it holding up a heavy roll of paper without crumbling. It is lightweight and so at first glance it seems flimsy. It has turned out to be a great piece of equipment, though. It has no problem holding my 36 foot roll of paper 9 feet in the air. It is also very easy to assemble, disassemble and haul around. Overall, great product.

I purchased this support system to use occasionally for small sets/backgrounds on our church platform. I have very little storage space, so needed something that would break down to a very compact size.

This unit arrived impressively packaged in a compact and well organized case. It concerned me at first that it had no real directions, but it ended up there actually wasn't a need. It is very easy to set up. I really like the telescoping pipe that rises from the tripod. It is easy to lift with the weight of a backdrop already there. The clamps that lock the vertical bars seem to be well designed with a tight hold. I'm not worried about my background slowly lowering. The crossbar unit is also well designed. Instead of 4 pieces of pipe that simply slide together, they lock in place giving strength and solidity to the entire unit.

For the price, I am amazed at the quality. I was expecting to receive a lower quality unit that would need some extra help to function as I needed it to. I have had it up for 6 weeks now and it hasn't budged.

I would highly recommend this product.

This product arrived in a flimsy over-sized box. The box was more than twice the volume that it needed to be, with no reinforcing inside. There was no damage at all on the box. One tripod leg was dented so badly one of it's legs was not straight. A plastic tightening knob was broken in two on the same tripod. I will now order a backdrop support from another manufacturer.

My entire experience with this item has been a homerun from the word go! After I pulled the trigger on the backdrop support system, I noticed the delivery date was after the photo shoot I needed it for!! I sent a quick email to the seller not expecting much, but within 2 hours I had an email and a phone call from the Seller!!! I could hardly believe it, but they said the item would ship the next day and assured me they would make sure I had it before the shoot! 4 days later the package was delivered, days before I needed it! What great customer service!!

Secondly, the system did come with instructions, but I forgot to read them... 3 minutes after the box was opened, I had the stands up, fully extended and my backdrop already mounted in place!!! Couldn't have been easier! Now I can go to the location and set up my gear and get a few advance shots taken care of to have my gear ready to go on photo shoot day!! Many, many thanks again to Steve Kaeser Photographic Lighting and Paul!

By the way, the stands are very sturdy, open and close very smooth and lock down in place very nicely. I really like the new patented cross bar mounts, different than any I've used before and very quick. Great Job, Great Product! I have no doubt I'll get years of use out of this system!! Five Stars All the Way!

I ordered this stand on September 8th and received it by the 15th.

The stand itself is excellent. I panicked a little at first because yes, no instructions.. but even without them I had the stand assembled in about 15 minutes and that includes the time it took to get the tape off the box without a pair of scissors.

It is a good weight, but I agree that if on soft or uneven ground some extra weight would possibly be necessary.

Two very nice clamps come with the setup. I would probably get a couple extra when ordering the stand.

The carrying bag is also very nice... a place for everything.

I'm very happy with my purchase and thanks to all who reviewed the item... it was a big help when deciding on a stand.
