    Aldi have the extension supports on sale again from this coming Sunday (25th). I bought a couple of these when they were last on sale - make very useful background supports, among other things.

    That looks useful. I shall get my brother to nip into his local store for me. For the price it won't matter if it sits in the shed for a year!

    I bought a couple of these at the last showing in Aldi a couple of years ago - excellent and highly recommended.

    I can't quite see from the picture how they can support a backdrop. Could someone explain? It might be very useful as I'm looking for a cheap backdrop support right now.

    Thanks

    This extends between floor and ceiling and you tension it so it is effectively wedged between the two. Run a pole between two of them to hang a backdrop.

    Great, that sounds quite good for sure. Think I'll invest!

    They look even easier to use than the ones I bought last year (having the trigger system) ................ and cheaper too.

    I don't bother with a pole. Just stick the material between the top of the pole and the roof - the tension holds it in place (and stops any possability of marking the roof).

    The dust sheets on offer at just over a fiver also make a good cheep backdrop (and are bigger than many commercial ones)

    Fantastic !!, after seeing this thread, I went out and bought two of them on Sunday, the build quality is awesome for a relatively inexpensive item, and they are so sinple to use.
    Just need to find a supplier of cheap green screen fabric now so I can play at being George Lucas with my new HD cam,

    Thanks for the tip

    Yeah, I went and got a couple too. Tried them and they work very well. Thanks for the heads up.
