I had originally bought a stand through Amazon for my backdrop, but it was so complicated and didn't ever work well (my backdrop was always slightly lopsided). So, I was incredibly excited when I saw this clip along with the large backdrop stand. I received my purchase within ONE day of ordering, it was simple to put up and worked instantly! So, instead of the five sub-par clips that I had bought on Amazon, along with a stand that never held up my backdrop, this one clip held the whole thing up within 30 seconds of assembling. I am very happy and would definitely recommend purchasing! Thanks Theatrik!
