Amazing invention

Los Angeles, CA

Exactly the thing we needed: transportable, dummy-proof, strong, modular, lightweight, beautiful, we just keep buying these risers.


Brilliant invention

Los Angeles, CA

Intellistage is the perfect product for traveling staging needs.


Easy Peasy

Lee's Summit, MO

These fold up and take up little room. Very easy to assemble.


Easy to use - very pleased

New York

We ordered a second set of risers to go with our 8 panels so that we could have multiple height stages depending on our event needs. Since the risers and panels are easy to assemble, this was great for our needs and we have been very happy with the product.



Excellent item. Great construction and very sturdy. We have been satisfied with all products we have purchased from StageDrop.



We use these as camera risers, and when we show up with them other crews always do a double-take: they're so small and light when folded! Can't speak to them as part of a full size stage setup, but for risers they are just excellent.

IntelliStage 3'x3' Square Riser

Washington, DC

Sets up fast and collapses easily. Surprised at how sturdy it feels to stand on when supporting a platform.



Mine Hill, NJ

Perfect compliment to the carpeted platform. StageDrop service always helpful to get me what I need.


The lightest weight and fastest to use riser legs

Los Angeles, CA

These are the lightest weight and fastest to use riser legs I have ever put my hands on. Our use is with small, 3'x3' platforms for camera and operator, so they must also be rock solid and on a smooth level surface, and they are (even at the tallest, 32" height). These likely would not hold up on a national rock tour, but if not abused should have a long life.

Caveats: all nine legs must touch the floor, which means the floor must be perfectly flat. Spacers are available as an accessory, but we've found that shims end up working better for small gaps since gaps are mostly odd sized. Residential style carpet with padding, not surprisingly) will also create some 'give' with a single, small platform, though combining with other sections would minimize that. If metal 'spike' feet (that come with some tripods) were an accessory, we'd buy them.

Finally, since we constantly transport the platforms, a Velcro cable tie wrapped around the middle helped to keep the legs together, though we've since moved on to using a nylon gear bag (Ruggard has one that's a good fit) which we like even better. The side pocket holds shims and the hex key for locking the platform.


This company is amazing

This company is amazing. Prices are reasonable and order processing is exceptional. Thank you for your help with my stage.


This is a good product

Sun City West, AZ
This is a good product, but it has its limitations. It's lightweight and very easy to store. However, if one is to stand on it, as we used it for our choir director to direct a cantata, he found it somewhat unsteady.


Very Pleased with Purchased

New York

We ordered 8 panels and risers so we could have a stage for our seminars and panel discussions. The Stage Drop service team was very helpful as we were working through our needs and helped ensure we had the stage in time for our first event. We have used the stage several times and are very pleased with the quality and the overall purchase process.


Very stable

Dayton, OH
Super light. Very stable when set up. Easily moved by one person. The color is a lighter grey carpet than I would have preferred.


Very well made

These risers are very nice. Very well made and so easy to use. They open and collapse very easily and nice and light weight. Also, very easy to connect to the platform.


Well worth the investment

Long Beach, NY
These risers are great. They really meet the needs of my theater company. We bought them so our photographer/videographer could raise his cameras to get better angles of our stage productions. Well worth the investment and sturdy enough to hold him and his equipment. Thank you StageDrop for the incredible customer service and great pricing. I won't be shopping anywhere else!
