Is it possible/safe to rig a 6x6 with two c-stands?

I've done it before with combo-stands, but I'm trying to keep my package weight down for a mobile shoot..

The shoot is an interior.

Thanks!

You say a 6' x 6' is that a silk or a solid or what? The answer is yes...maybe with the proper amount of sand bags, two maffers or similar products and hopefully not to high... I understand wanting to keep you package small. Combo stands would be a wiser choice. And if the rig fails and you break something on location.... not good. I have done a few things over the years where i pushed the weight limit on a rig and i have learned that the risk is not worth it.
Your call...
Thank you and always work safe!
