    Hi folks

    I've just bought a decent 106" electric screen that can be wall or ceiling mounted, but I'm in a quandary. We're about to move but not for a few weeks & I want to test/air the screen before we go. So I need a pair of stands that I can hang the screen from (it weighs about 14kg) temporarily. I need to be clear; it must be cheap, as it won't be used once I move & can mount it in the new house. I've tried looking around but I'm not sure which search terms to use as my searches are only bringing up diy projects I don't really have the time for or lightweight options that won't hold the weight. Any ideas?

    Have you considered a pair of speaker tripods? You would probably need to buy a pair of mounts to get something flat for the screen case to site on.
