All-terrain light stand

Light stands are great – in the studio. In the outdoor conditions, they struggle to cope with uneven grounds. Strobe-enthusiast Reuben Krabbe found a neat way to modify a standard light-stand to work on uneven grounds such as slopes or stairs.

The modification is simple – Reuben removes the rivet from one of the legs with a drill, creates a series of holes in that leg and installs a clip to hold the leg into the new hole position. The end result (after 5 minutes of work) is a light stand with a leg that moves independently to adapt to any ground terrain!
