You may build your own tripod for much less money, it will also be much easier to transport. You can build a small, tripod compact and slightly stiff as wire hangers, resulting in something that can be easily placed on any surface to aim and position your floor lamp.
10 layers of wrapped tape around each of the rigid wires, leaving 2 inches (5.08 cm) discovered in one end of each tripod floor lamp. Fold the exposed ends of the U-shaped wire with pliers. Place one wire at the end of the bolt so that the cable “hook” the tape touches the pin, but the latter is not touched by the hook. Wrap with tape and hook bolt; three layers will be enough.
