I have a 7ft by 7ft background that has a pattern on it and I want to make sure that I evenly light it. Can someone recommend a couple of clamps or anything else that I can attach to my background stand or would it be better to attach a couple of strobes to the legs of a light stand?

I have used one of these to attach a second strobe low on a light stand.

Adding a second light and diffuser on the same side of the stand makes the stand less stable so be careful to add plenty of weight via sand bags to make sure the stand doesn't tip over.

Thanks for the link. I already have two of these along with several other clamps in my bag.
