plastic clips ALL eventually break

By ronjon1969 from Chicago, IL, USA on 01/15/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

as lightweight & compact (when folded) as this easel is, the 2 100% plastic adjustable clips where the item being displayed rests/sits eventually break/snap off after minimal use. you get what you pay for- that is why these are cheap/inexpensive.

easel is good but clips are not

By partry1 from Nashville, Tn on 11/14/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have owned five of these easels for about a year. After 6 months I started to notice clip failure. Now every one of the easels are missing the support clips and as of today I still have not been able to find any replacement clips. You would think Quartet would have addressed this problem by now.

Support Clips Break Very Easily

By Rick from Las Vegas, NV, USA on 09/17/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchase seven of these units for use at our school. The first time we used them, the clips on three of the units broke... before we could even put the poster board on them. Cheap... cheap.. cheap... DO NOT BUY.

What a difference these made!

By John2014 from Columbia, MO on 07/24/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

With a previous employer, I frequently was involved w/ public meetings requiring multiple display boards. Once we hauled over 20 wooden easels around to meetings over several days. When the firm purchased a number of Instant Easels, the setup/tear down time was cut in half (not to mention the splinters, frustration, etc.!). I remember the biggest downside being the broken clips and difficulty in finding replacements. I wasn't responsible for this, so didn't think much about it at the time. I just knew I didn't want to be in front of a client with a duct-taped clip on my easel! Years later I am at a smaller company that recently had a meeting where a couple of the Instant Easels were used. One of them had a broken clip, so I looked at Staples website to order replacements and they weren't shown. I called the store to see if they had them in stock and they acted as if no one had ever asked about this before. I got on Quartet's website and the only mention of clips is in the comments section...people complaining about the difficulty in finding replacements when they break. Enough time has passed...I'm a big fan of the product, just get on the stick about making replacement parts available easily through your distributors!

A little too basic....

By DelawareGoodGuy from Newark, DE on 05/07/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This instant easel is a product that uses shockcords (like in camping tents) to fairly easily set up. This is an excellent product for indoor use. There is only one point where the three legs are attached, at the apex, so that means there is no true means of making the easel steady, especially in an outdoor situation. Some of our volunteers seem flummoxed by the chart holders are attached to two of the legs, and several have been snapped off so far. Fortunately, ACCO/Quartet has replacements in stock and provide them with little or no trouble at all.

Cheap, Travel Ready, Flimsy, Fragile

By RM20 from Beverly Hills on 11/13/2013


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have 3 of these and love them, when they work. The tripod itself is great, but the supports that hold the display items break off very easily, making it a bit useless until you figure out a replacement (I use clothespins).

Product was not very sturdy.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Product was not very sturdy. Legs kept collapsing and wouldn't hold a three pound item.
