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.


  • Crush resistant ABS twin-wall provides end-to-end reinforcement
  • Oversized, shock-absorbing wheels roll smoothly and hold up under the toughest conditions
  • 52” of internal height for those extra large modifiers or gel rolls


Additional Features+

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

  • Multiple tie-down straps secure your stands on the inside of the bag
  • Expands and contracts to fit your gear
  • Four exterior handles for easier lifting and loading
  • Built tough with highest quality materials (#10 YKK RC Fuse zippers, 1680D ballistic nylon and ABS Twinwall reinforcement) and proven high-quality construction
  • Large interior pocket for umbrellas or small modifiers
  • Roomy interior for a few sandbags
  • Rear skid rails and tall wheel housings allow you to load and unload from a vehicle with ease

So far so good

I just got back from a 12 day shoot and this works great. Doesn’t look too beat up after a flight overseas and back. Easy to overfill but the weight is distributed well so it was always easy to carry even at 70 pounds.

Fantastic Case

Not only can I fit my tripods, but also lights, external bags, and smaller tripods. I bought two of these for my videos shoots and aside from those all I need is my camera bag and everything else fits into two of these bags. Great value for the price!

Great bag!

The Studio Manager 52 was the perfect size for my c-stand, light stands, and a couple of modifiers. Like all Think Tank products I own, it’s well made and smartly designed with grab handles on all 4 sides, compression straps, and soft rollers. Oddly, the only thing it lacks is a place to slide in a business card. Other than that, the only other thing I wish it came with was someone to help carry/roll it. Think Tank customer service never disappoints, and I know they stand by their products.

Best Bag Ever

Why I waited so long?

I'm a freelance fashion photographer and I shoot mainly on location using a large amount of equipment. I always have at least four Avenger C-stands, two extra arms with grip an extra turtle base and sandbags. I never found a convenient solution to carry everything at once. Until I discovered the Stand Manager 52. What a joy! Now I save time and I avoid damages to my car. Very well build as usual, stunning to see. When fully loaded it becomes heavy, but with those lovely wheels it's a breeze to carry around. Great value product, the best you can find. Highly recommended.
