        should have bought this years ago. I can mount two soft boxes to my column
        stand making it great for full body shots or clamshell lighting, very versatile
        and easy to adjust

          Easy and so useful. I wish I hadn't waited so long. With a monolight and a 48" octabox it glides effortlessly on the stand. Very well made, and easy to use.I can not think of a negative. Great idea manfrotto.

              Comments about Manfrotto 231ARM Hand-Grip Sliding Support Arm:

              I use this arm on a ProMaster light stand in order to tilt a 48" octobox and/or to get the box lower to the ground. Even with relatively small hands I am able to release the clamp and slide it to where I want it.

                    Great as long as you don't load it up with a typical 4'x6' softbox... it will slowly slide down if you go with this much weight. Spring clamp beneath will arrest travel but then what is the point of having this style quick release?

                          This Hand-Grip was purchased as a second grip on my Manfrotto light stand. So far, I've used it for a second light and also for a reflector. I'm certain I'll find other uses for it as well.

                              I got two extra of these when I ordered the Manfrotto column, and am very glad I did. I have a small tray on one of them and put two lights on the others. These things really grip but move very easily and smoothly.
