For my mobile photostudio i'm using a chromakey green backdrop and the backdrop stand from tubetape
The problem i have everytime is that at the top the tube is going in the backdrop, but the sides are very difficult to attach to the stand.
What is the most used solution (except duck tape) to get it properly fixed

I use clothes pegs and those big metal pegs/clips you see at market stands.
I wrap the material round the post and kind of 'pinch' it together. Not perfect... but it works.
I have always planned to sew loops to the edge of the material and slide the poles through them.

Depending on the shots you are taking, if you aren't doing full-body shots then you can wrap another pole or a board in the bottom of the greenscreen, and allow the weight to keep it hanging evenly. Of course, if you need the greenscreen to go nder their feet as well, this won't work. But for portraits, its a good trick. But in general, it should hang pretty still on its own, unless you are outside with it? In which case, you are probably going to want to sandbag the stands or something to make them more stable. It doesn't take much of a breeze to turn your greenscreen into a sail.
