Quartet� Heavy Duty Instant Easel
A little too basic....
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.

Key element breaks
We second that first review, almost to a T. First year, no problems, used at a couple of events. Warranty expires in year 2. Brought out for same purposes and plastic (load bearing) arms break off as they are snapped into place, one right after the other. Even when we knew of hairline cracks and tried to be gentle they broke. Design flaw; suggest you look/spend for better product elsewhere.

Plastic Supports Break
Purchased 4 stands one year ago used 2 of them a few times worked great. Get them out this year to use all 4 plastic support clips break. (Clips that you rest your presentation boards on.) Customer service is sending me replacements, but I don't think they will last either. ????

Cheap, Travel Ready, Flimsy, Fragile
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).
