This is the second Manfrotto stand I ordered, The first was used. When I assembled it, I could not keep the tripod base from collapsing "upwards" under any weight whatsoever. Noticing a hole in one of the poles, I decided that a screw must've gotten lost along the way, and returned it, ordering a new one.
Sometimes. it works. But the mechanism is so finicky and fragile, you cannot trust this to remain upright. The problem appears to be the absence of a positive locking mechanism connecting the tripod base to the stand. Relying on friction only, it is simply a matter of time (ten seconds? five minutes? As soon as you adjust the light? ) before it fails. Honestly, if only you could turn the stand so that a "lip" would catch, I'd recommend this without hesitation. It's "solidly flimsy" and too light - but that's to be expected. What is appalling is that they couldn't spend ten more minutes designing this thing to do what , for $75, it supposed to do. It's too late to return it now. Maybe I will try some duct tape.
UPDATED: In fairness to Manfrotto, I'm amending this review. The product works great if you ignore their specific instructions. There is a horizontal line on the column which marks where you should place to top-most part of the tripod attachment for "Max Stability". This makes sense - if the tripod legs are too acutely angled toward the ground, you'll get more height, but less stability. Well, this line is simply too low to avoid instability in the other direction.- spontaneous collapse. If I ignore the warning and adjust to about 2- inches above the marked line, the stand works great. Good luck!
