The PIXAPRO Autopoles Kit can be used in conjunction with 3x Background Expansion Drive Shafts and Backdrop Hooks as functional background support and grip system for your Seamless Paper Roll and Vinyl Backgrounds. The Autopole kit can be placed between any wall or ceiling to create a secure support stand, ideal for photographers unable to keep their support systems constantly set up. The Background Expansion Drive Shafts is three sets of two adapters that allow you to attach a Paper or Vinyl Backdrop for permanent studio use. The 2x Backdrop Hooks can be attached directly to stands and then hold up the expansion drive and background, ideal for a quick and easy set-up. This equipment is ideal for a busy studio environment that needs to change backgrounds quickly without issue.
