Default Re: How do YOU break down a Hi Hat stand?

I have DW 5000 and 9000 stands.

With the footboard I just lift it up and tighten the screws again. No problemo.
So, kick drum...or...bass drum? I'll tell you what. If it's 18" or less, it's a FOOT TOM.

This is where I have landed. I used to have one of those long rolling hardware bags so I could just fold the stand bases and be done with it. But I discovered this bag was difficult to maneuver in crowded urban environments and finding storage space for it was always an issue. I now use a much more compact hardware bag that's only 28 inches in length. This necessitates breaking down stands, but all of mine are two-tier and memory-locked..I even have the tripod bases memory locked...so setup and breakdown is actually very quick for me. I break down my hi-hat stand like the OP, except I don't flip the clutch. I put the upper assembly by itself in the side pocket of my hardware bag.
