Ok guys, how do you stop the seamless from unrolling after you've set it up? I'm taking my whole studio to a location for a shoot sunday and I'll be setting up my seamless but every time i set it up as soon as someone or something even nudges it...the slightest touch sends it crazy and it just starts to unravel and bunch up where it sweeps...is there any way to fix this?

Get some of the big spring hand clamps from Home Depot or Lowes. Either clamp it so it holds the seemless or even on the cross over bar and clamp it so it rubs on the edge of the seemless.

Yup, use these:

Any one of those spring clamps should put a stop to the paper.

Yup. Spring clamps work great. I bought a bag of them from Lowes for about $15. Also, taping the edges with clear packaging tape will keep them from tearing and make the seemless last a lot longer (I have 20 year old several rolls that are in constant use).
