Old Hollywood Sand Bags are ideal for light stands to add stability when stands are raised above 6 ft or in heavy foot traffic areas. [As a professional Gaffer would do on set] These bags are custom made for us to get an “Authentic Vintage Look.” Sandbags are made of 18 oz heavy-duty canvas in Unbleached Natural Cotton webbing. Seared inside edges so the natural weave and material will not fray out over time. Velcro is applied on each side of the bag (in the fill opening slot) double reinforced at openings. We used Soft Touch instead of velcro, a more industrial product for this application. These bags ship empty and can easily be filled once they arrive with regular all-purpose sand. I suggest a wide-mouth funnel and shaking the bag so as to move the sand around (make it settle) so they can be filled entirely. Small Bags 10 lbs generally end up between 9 - 10 lbs when full. Large Bags generally end up 20 - 22 lbs wholly filled.
We recommend 10 lb bags on 1ks & 2 Ks
We recommend 20 lb bags on 2Ks, 5Ks, and 10Ks
* The higher the light, the more counterweight the stand will require

Conditions of return:
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
All Lights are refurbished using USA specifications as the lights were originally manufactured.
120 Volt AC, E26 sockets (Edison Screw Medium/Standard), and either NEMA 1-15 ungrounded (Type A) or NEMA 5-15 grounded (Type B) plugs. Unless otherwise noted in description. Use in Non North American Regions will require the user purchase the correct current / Plug adapter for use in their county.
* Receiving base for bulbs - These two standards are interchangeable, meaning a US E26 will fit in a European E27 base, and E27 will fit in a E26 base. The only difference is the voltage (for light bulbs). In fact there is only 1 mm difference between the threads of E26 and E27, so they are virtually identical.
