      Works exactly as advertised, definitely has some heft to it. I'm in the same boat as a couple other reviewers though, my product came looking like a used prototype. All of the painted metal is scratched and the rest is super durable plastic. For 75 I'm looking for a bit more polish, but at the end of the day who cares what it looks like? Keeps me from hiring a PA.

      It's functional but in the world of video/photo equipment high tolerance mechanical engineering this device looks like a prototype. I had to assume that it's made by hand in someone's garage. I like my gear slick and clean. I'd pay double for that.

      But, let's not be too hard on this product. I used it extensively for a recent documentary film shoot and it performed well. It's easy to use and functional but when you pull it out of the box don't expect German engineering.

      Comments about ATS RAM BOOMPOLE CRADLE - Boompole Mounting Kit for Lightstands:

      I would give it a zero if I could. As other reviews mention it came shipped looking like some hand made prototype. On top of that the latch for the cradle doesn't fasten at all and cannot hold me boom mic. Absolute waste of money, and it is a complete shame considering it does have nice versatility, just cant hold the boom mic - which is its sole purpose...

          Used with my Boompole, this cradle allows for so many angles, you can get your mic where it needs to be. Go from cradled to hand held boom, in seconds. Solid Product.

            Used on last shoot to hold boom pole and mic. It did a great job and held well. I should have got one of these years ago. Worked great on standard light stand.

            Great tool when a stationary boom pole and mic are needed.

                The thing is bulky and looks hand crafted. Works for the purpose but is a little clunky and certainly needs some wrangling for it to work.

                      One of the things I watch very carefully is safety - I bought this because it said safely holds boompole...I don't think so - the clamp provided does not, well, clamp? There is actually nowhere for it to clip to? I am going to try it on a shoot and if the rest works - then I will remove the clamp and replace it with a solid Velcro strap.Like some mentioned - it does look like it was made in a garage... For the price - I am disappointed - I would send it back, but it is something I need [...] so I'll try to micky-rig this to work.

                        As soon as I received the cradle I used it on a few shoots. It was excellent! And it's extremely well made.

                        Just replaced a very very very old black steel cradle with this lightweight beauty. We use it for on set audio with a carbon fiber boom pole and an avenger C-stand and it works great. I will say that I wish that it had a single adjustment point rather than the two ball joints it uses just because it can get a bit floppy which makes fine tuned adjustments like finding the edge of frame a bit tricky, but not to the point that it's a deal breaker. All in all a great piece of on set equipment.

                              It's a great idea and handy. However, I've had a lot of problems with mine being able to tighten enough. It's gotten to the point where the handle simply turns. It will creep down slowly into the shot.

                                Lets my audio person concentrate on gathering great audio rather than futzing with boom pole when we're in a fixed position .
