    Adaptor and bars for backdrops - have light stands

    Hey all,

    I have 2x 2.6m light stands I am happy with and wish to use them as backdrop stands. Not long ago I remember finding adaptors and crossbars to adapt them to this purpose, pretty sure on EBay. However, now I can't find anything of the kind. Am I searching for the wrong thing maybe, searched for 'backdrop adaptor' etc to no avail. I don't want to have to buy a full kit again as I'll end up with too many light stands for my purpose (already have others that I intend using just as light stands).

    Any suggestions on where I can find these adaptors and crossbars? I tried adapting PVC but it seemed to not be solid and flex too much.
    Have: Nikon D90; Tamron 17-50mm 2.8; Tokina 50-135mm 2.8; Tamron 18-270 'alphabet' lens; Nikkor 50mm 1.8; 1x Nikon SB-600; 3x Yongnuo YN560 flash, 1x Yongnuo YN465 flash.

    Want: Tamron 90mm 2.8 macro;

    I haven't seen any adaptor bars but I have seen back drop supports using light stands in the past.

    Instead of pvc tube, have you considered your local aluminium supply factory, we use 3m long 25mm tube and it supports muslin backdrops with no hint of sagging.
