Yes there are no holes in the truss, but if you put holes in it, the truss will be weekend, thats what clamps are for!! Plastic clamps havent broken for me, you don't need to tighten them really, there are metal pins to hold it up, the clamps are just extra. Versatile, the truss can be taken apart in 2 pieces so if you want a 4 foot truss you can, or if you want an 8 foot you can, or if you dont want any truss just the stand beams with holes you can. You can mix and match to your needs very well.

I'm on my second "package" now. My first one... in the process of setup and teardown so many times, the extending pole on one of the stands got bent. It became extremely hard to put up and take down. I also broke two of the plastic clamps that hold the truss to the stands. Two guys were taking it down for me, and one of them went just a little bit faster than the other. Shattered it to pieces. Got a whole new set. I use 6 Chauvet Pro Clamp with 360 Degree Wrap with foam tape in them and I LEAVE THEM ON the truss. And just attach lights. I also leave the middle support bar on one side of the truss during take down. I also have bolted through the plastic clamps. So, the clamps that attach the truss to stands are on for good and probably won't break. Then we slip the whole assembled deal over the extending stand poles. If you do all of this, this works really well. If not, spend more money. :)

CHEAP Clamps

By Doug-H6XJK

from Idaho

Just took a brand new unit out of the box and all but 2 clamps were broken. Even several of the T-Nut heads were broken. Missing safety pins. No parts bag. That being said, IF the parts were all in one piece, it should be a good bang for the buck. They just need to get it right up front by making sure they package the unit better and raise the quality a bit on the nylon clamps.

not too bad

By Ryan-.xmfa

from Maine

Metal hardware would totally make this worth the buy, the plastic clamps do break if tightened too much. And there's no holes in the truss but my drummer and I took care of that with a trip to the hardware store. It's really not that bad once you have it set up though, it looks bad a$$ and gets the job done.

Not Bad

By SPATER

from Newark, NY

I got this set over a year ago. Never had a problem with it yet. It would have been nice if there were holes in the truss. I ended up getting extra clamps to counter that problem. We have used it quite a bit in my band, we try to be gentle with it because it doesn't look real strong, but it still takes a beating from being put up and tore back down 2 to 4 times a month. Still holding up, so I guess we can't complain. For the price, it can't be beat.

Cheap Clamps and Fasteners

By Steve-tZrr4

from Lagrange, GA

I have this set up with my lights. The hardware as far as the clamps that hold the stands up and together break if tightened too much. Most of the clamps that came with the set up were broken in the box when I recieved this set up. Hardware needs to be more rigged and made out of metal. This will prevent it from breaking.

Not Worth the Money!

By RPhill5435

from San Antonio, TX.

The first time I used this, the plastic pole clamp broke when tightened. There are no holes in the truss, and when you use lighting clamps, the truss dents. Truss is hard to take apart once assembled.

This is a good basic light stand.

By VeePlayer

from Jupiter, FL

I got this to hold up our banner and some lights. It does that very well. We use it every weekend. It is not made for heavy touring, but the price is right for a weekend warrior.

Don't Waste Your money

By Randy-rWs2j

from Petal, MS

Came in with 2 knobs broken. Came in with no holes in the truss at all. First time I raised the stands and turned the knobs to tighten, the cheap plastic clamps broke, on both stands. One of the clamps that holds the "T" bar to one of the stand broke into, with little movement. The clamps for the "T" Bar would never tighten enough to hold the lights level, light kept falling forward (shining on the floor) or backwards (shining on the ceiling).
