Stage weights commonly used to help prop up scenery boards and other production materials such as stage flaps. They have also often been used as a counterweight to secure items to the floor to prevent items from slipping or being moved from accidentally being kicked. Base plates, truss, and beams also tend to require additional stage weights as extra ballast and to increase safety amongst guests during events.
