PVC Backdrop Pole for Muslins

Looking for an easy way to hang your background muslin? I was just "clamping" mine to my backdrop stand till I saw this idea at a photo seminar a few weeks ago.

They took a 10' - 1.5" thick PVC pipe and drilled holes through one half of the end of the PVC pipe. These holes are used to slip over the top of your background stands (but you go halfway to the "top" of the pipe prevents the PVC from sliding down to the floor.)

Then, I took my Muslin and duct taped it to the PVC rod on both ends and lengthwise. To hang the muslin, just sit the Pipe over your stands… and to store it, just pop it off the top and roll it up and store it with your background paper. Pretty simple easy solution. I like those!
