    Yes there are cheaper "A" spring-clamp solutions, but this thing has some built-in goodies that make it mate better with lightstands, clamps and flash cold/hot shoes.

    It has large rubber feet inside the clamp so it is less likely to damage whatever it's clamped to.

    The photos of these make them look smaller than what they are ...

    Strong Clamp, too strong?

    Construction is good, but I wonder if the clamp is a little too strong. I've really got to squeeze hard to open to fully. I got this to solve an odd clamping concept...Read complete review

    Construction is good, but I wonder if the clamp is a little too strong. I've really got to squeeze hard to open to fully. I got this to solve an odd clamping concept (holding a pinhole camera in place, and I'm not sure if it wouldn't crush my camera!

          I use this clamp along with the 237 HD flex arm and the heavy duty shelf clamp to hold reflectors and flashes in close up pics. Once I adjust them they stay that way. They are high quality units and I believe they will last a long time.

                  You cannot be wrong with this product .... superbly STRONG spring clamp ... seems that it will serve me next 20 years!.... One of the handles accepts the standard 3/8" stud. I purcased it to use as LASTOLITE 30" reflector holder ... I think this clamp is over kill for that purpose... simple boom with reflector holder with clamp would do the job. ... that is the problem of ordering online, without seeing the product on my own ! ... However, that is not related to the excellent quality of this product.

                  ... Highly recommended.

                    I didn't know about the existence of these clamps and was using Justin Clamps to fix my collapsible background to two (2) Manfrotto 1051BAC lightstands. Super lightweight and portable kit. These do the same job and are much cheaper, highly recommended!

                                    I bought one and made my own Justin Clamp by adding a small ball head with a tripod shoe. That was so usefl I bought another and made a second one. Then I used this clamp to hold a diffuser (Lastolite Tri-Grip) and that was perfect (I was surprised it held it so well -- this is a nice, strong clamp!). Then I started using them to hold muslin backgrounds tight and in place. I now have 5 of these clamps and will probably buy one almost everytime I order gear.

                                    It's extremely versatile and grips much better than the cheap A clamps.

                                        I was surprised that the thin metal of the handles bent the first time I used it. Usually Manfrotto is top quality.

                                          Y bought this for learnig how to use flashes and it's a great product. Whilst a little bit hard to open, it hangs very well.

                                            I have several Justin clamps. They are very versatile but rather pricey! I took these Manfrotto 175 clamps (same as the ones used in Justin clamps) and bought some mini-ball heads and Stroboframe bracket shoe mount and made my own Justin clamps by enlarging the hole already present in the middle portion of the clamp. I secured the mini-ball head by using the 1/4 mounting screw that came with the flash bracket.
                                            Voila', my very own Justin clamp on the cheap!

                                                I like how you can attach this to the top of a tripod and it will hold a fairly large foam board. Great when shooting without an assistant.

                                                Combine with additional stands and super clamps to create your own temporary wall if need be.

                                                      Using this clamp for areas I just can't get a lightstand into and yet I still need to use flash. Clamping to a chair, rails, tree, etc.
