Think Tank Photo introduces The Stand Manager 52 Rolling Case

Studio photographers know that lighting stands are heavy, cumbersome and hard to transport. In fact, transporting light stands is as much about protecting your car and your fingers as it is easily moving them. The Stand Manager 52 rolling case is an ideal solution for storing and transporting stands of any kind.

Think Tank Photo introduces The Stand Manager 52 Rolling Case

With a truly innovative design – the Stand Manager 52 has both internal tie-downs and exterior compression straps to secure your stands. With four padded handles, shock-absorbing wheels and rear skid rails, the case is also easy to load while transporting to and from your location shoot. The Stand Manager 52 is one of the most durable and protective cases you can own.

“C-stands are heavy, oddly shaped and difficult to transport,” said Doug Murdoch, Think Tank Photo’s President and lead designer. “With the Stand Manager 52, you can fit up to 4 C-stands in a highly durable rolling case, making them much easier to transport.”
