The Manfrotto 2961D Complete Deluxe AutoPole-2 Expan Kit is a background support system designed for the raising and lowering of up to 3 cored backgrounds without needing a ladder. Backgrounds without cardboard cores can also be used with the system with the addition of Alu-Core crossbars (sold separately). The Deluxe Black AutoPoles create background support and are held in place between the floor and a ceiling as high as 12.1' (3.7m) by a spring lock. The background set includes 3 Expan Drive Sets with plastic color-coded drive chains that are held by the background hook set. This set is then clamped onto the AutoPoles. The ultimate adjustable lighting pole system can be used to create a background support, structure a lighting grid, or for hundreds of other studio and outdoor applications. Its unique single action cantilever locking system exerts the correct amount of pressure to assure a secure fit, wedging the protective rubberends in place, ceiling to floor. The cantilever system incorporates a safety lock to prevent accidental de-tensioning or movement. The Deluxe Version features extra tension capabilities for added strength.

The 046MCB Expan Drive Set with Black Metal Chain allows easy raising and lowering of rolls of background paper without lowering the support stands. The system uses two expandable technopolymer inserts to support a single roll of seamless paper. Tightening each side expands the drive inserts from 1.8" to 3" to grip the roll solidly from the inside. One side has a large toothed gear to which a metal link chain affixes, permitting convenient raising and lowering of the background paper roll. The other side has an adjustable tension drag.

  • Perfect to create a background support in limited space
  • Fast and efficient background paper drive set for one roll
