A sliding leg or "stair leg" c-stand makes it easy to set a grip stand
on stairs or uneven ground. Keep your stand vertical by simply sliding
the one leg that moves to the correct level. Always use a sandbag or
shotbag to secure your stand.

Century Stands or "C" stands
are an important component in the image maker's arsenal of tools. The
term "Century Stand" goes back to the early days of motion picture
production. Before the introduction of artificial lighting, the stages
would revolve to allow for continuous overhead lighting from the sun.
Large reflectors would be positioned to bounce back or kick the overhead
light up onto the stage and illuminate the set and actors. These
reflectors were made in many sizes, but it seems the most popular was
the 100 inch or "Century" sized reflector. In later years, studios,
grips and gaffers began to manufacture the earliest versions of what we
now call C Stands. The original C Stands had welded bases that did not
fold up or adjust, but the fact that they easily nested together made
them invaluable on stages and sets. In 1974 Matthews Studio Equipment
introduced the industry's first adjustable C Stand. C Stand is a
registered trademark of Matthews Studio Equipment. Matthews now
produces a wide range of C Stands and related accessories to assist the
motion picture, television and photographic professional in lighting and
lighting modification support.
