The Kupo Single Handed Stand features automatically collapsing legs which offer quick setup and easy repositioning. The ability to quickly pick up and put down a light stand without having to open and close the stand legs makes it easy and safe for moving around in crowded locations. It also reduces the chance of accidentally bumping into things or people around you. The rugged aluminum light stand with maximum height of up to to 247cm (97'') with compact closed size 73.6cm (29'') also makes it easy for storage and transportation. A locking knob was built on the central column for keeping the legs in position when the extreme quiet is demanded.
