    I bought a pair to help hang a cross bar for a seamless white background. I was impressed by the safety button that must be depressed in order to remove the clamp from the light stand. Even with the thumb screw loose, the clamp won't fall off. The cast aluminum construction body make this both light and strong.

    Not bad, but Manfrotto is better

    These aren't as solid as the Manfrotto super-clamp. They're not *that* bad, and OK for light-duty work, but I'll be buying the real thing (Manfrotto) from now on.

          If you want to attach something any type of tubing this is the clamp. You can attach almost any thing to these clamps and it holds it fast. You can never have enough of these clamps in your studio. I am still finding new uses for them with each new shooting challenge.

              This is a great little clamp. I bought it to hold the boom pole for interviews but I'm sure it will have many other uses. The build quality is top notch, especially for the price. I'm very happy with it.

                Sturdy clamp useful for not only attaching to truss but any other surface which the clamp jaws will fit around. Would be nice if description included more detailed info such as material of construction. Had to use other reviews and live chat to verify this was an all-metal version. Arrived within a couple of days of ordering.

                        An excellent product! I prefer the small tightening knob on this product over the bulky lever used on the manfrotto equivalent.

                            I had used the "boom buddy" for years but then had a client of mine suggest the Mafer clamp and it works so much better I got my own. It is easier and sturdier.

                                          I use this clamp atop Manfrotto Avenger 12'8 stands to hold backdrops wrapped around aluminium piping. The build quality is satisfyingly solid and they clamp down firmly. I have no issues using them whatsoever; they perform the job they were bought to do at a reasonable price point.

                                              No plastic on this thing. I've never worked with other clamps but I'm not sure what could make one any better.
