Too complicated. Was a lot more heavy duty than I needed and not very attractive with all the big adjustment latches
The design is good, but the metal of the tray that holds the artwork is so thin that one tray was bent in shipping. I straightened it by hand and it worked well enough. I bought these easels because I needed 2 for one-time use. The price is unbeatable. If you want a portable easel for frequent use, it would be better to get something a little more durable.
These are very thin.
