Quartet� Heavy Duty Instant Easel
We have three of these easels that we use. One of the brackets has broken as they are only plastic, however the company quickly stood behind their product and took care of the problem and replaced the broken part for us. Thank you!

Support Clips Break Very Easily
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.

Plastic supports to hold materials break
I ordered several of these in hopes to use them many times for displaying materials at events, shows, meetings, etc. Most of the easels are now in the garbage after only a couple (at most) uses. Nearly all the plastic supports that hold materials broke very quickly. In most cases, simply moving them into position to hold items was enough for the back to snap. Disappointing to say the least.

What a difference these made!
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!
