      Easy to Use

      They are quite large, and do what they need. I use them to hold up background cloth when filming my interviews and they work just fine.

        2 of these easily hold my 27lb sandbag to my jib as a counterbalance. These clips are super heavy duty, takes two hands to open them.

          The best A clamps

          Comments about Adjustable Clamp Company Pony Spring "A" Clamp with Plastic Tips - 3":

          Over the years I've had plenty of A clamps but these ones with the orange rubber are easily the best. The rubber is nice and thick and makes for a great clamp that will outlast all your others.

          I seriously love these clamps! They don't tear or rip my roll paper and if there happens to be a trip by my model, the clamps normally give before the paper rips! Will continue to buy these as needed!

              This is a good strong clamp. A classic piece of hardware for video or for still photography. If you need to secure a sound blanket or a piece of show card to a pole or grip arm, this will do it. The plastic tips prevent damage to fabric.It's very stiff, so be prepared to exert some muscle to open it and use it!Gaffer tape is great, but this is a way better device to secure a Duvateen background.Not for use on the barndoors of lights. That would melt the nice plastic protectors!

                I bought these to use to hold up background but also modified to use as "super clamps" for holding up speedlights in awkward locations where a light stand does not work. These work well for both tasks and were fairly inexpensive. They are bigger than I expected but still useful for what I wanted to do so I kept them. I was actually able to make two mounts of them for a couple of speedlights which is handy when you need more light without the space to put up more than one clamp.

                  I have been using these primarily with my background stand in my studio to secure backgrounds and seamless rolls. Fits around the stand's legs well and doesn't leave a mark. (Plus the orange tips are a nice touch.) You might have to two-hand this one to open it fully and some may see this as a problem, but this is exactly the strength you want when securing your equipment. The only complaint from me would be that they are fairly heavy and sometimes I wish the clamp ends were a little longer. I've also found them handy with fill cards by clamping them to the base to hold them upright when working on a table top. And for that time when I had to superglue a shoe together...

                  I bought these clamps because they were suggested to me by BH when I bought a background stand, but I should've heeded the reviews that said to avoid them if you are a lady. I found that they were quality clamps, able to support heavy backdrops, but also extremely hard to open for both strong guys and girls. I would suggest a smaller size for ordinary use, but otherwise a good buy.

                              They are quite large, and do what they need. I use them to hold up background cloth when filming my interviews and they work just fine.

                                You could clamp an elephant to the wall with one of these!

                                Much bogger than I expected, but these work very well and I would recommend them to anyone desiring clamps.
