The Rocky Mountain Leg allows the stand to be placed on uneven surfaces or stairs. This stand is the most bullet-proof light stand made and requested by name. The Hollywood Beefy Baby leg supports now fold down. Legs are made of steel instead of aluminum to provide greater stability and longer wear. The top riser is also made of steel, this permits the 5/8" Baby Pin to be welded into the riser instead of pinned, plus it increases the strength of the top riser which is the smallest in diameter.
