      Comments about Manfrotto 039 U-Hook Cross Bar Holders for Super Clamp - Pair:

      Hooks fit any superclamp, light weight and pretty strong. I've yet to use them to hang a cross bar, but they're good for hanging packs on lightstands if you need to weigh the stand down or don't like your gear on the floor.
      Simple and works. Also way cheaper than buying them here in Canada.

        I drilled out the hole in the bottom of the hook to accomodate a 3/8" carriage bolt. This secured my Da-Lite telescoping cross bar and made the system much safer.

          Item holds items well, especially if you need a hook. It may be why the name has 'hook' in it.

              These are strong and great for holding up backdrop rods. They lock in tight on a super clamp and stay put

                    Comments about Manfrotto 039 U-Hook Cross Bar Holders for Super Clamp - Pair:

                    Over the years, I have purchased lots of these U-Hooks. In my studio, I use lots of different seamless paper backgrounds, up to 12 ft. wide. These units really lock positively into Super Clamps, which I clamp to Manfrotto Autopoles. There is no risk of a 40 lb. roll of background paper falling off and breaking something. I put the rolls on lengths 1-in. steel EMT tubing, which rest in the hooks. There is a hole in the bottom of the hook to secure the tube with a screw. These units exhibit the usual high standards of Manfrotto design and manufacture. In a past life, I was a machinist. I can't think of any aspect of these hooks that isn't top notch metalworking.

                              I use Deluxe Autopoles along with two manfrotto 035 super clamps and two manfrotto 039 "U" hooks made for use with the Super Clamp and electrical conduit to hang muslim backgrounds in a very small studio. The hooks and clamps make for a nice system but still requires clamps to stretch the cloth. Instructions aren't very clear for the poles but when you get it once it's easy.

                                  I use these to hold long bars with either a backdrop paper or a muslin background. They are simple, but work great. I will probably buy another set soon.

                                    These hooks work great for holding cross bars on Autopoles to support various backgrounds. Another use is to attach a Super Clamp to light stand and attach a U-Hook. Then use the U-Hook to hang battery pack strap for off-camera shooting. Attach Super Clamp with U-Hook to center column of tripod to hang stabilizing weight back or bag with extra gear.

                                      Comments about Manfrotto 039 U-Hook Cross Bar Holders for Super Clamp - Pair:

                                      These are perfect for clipping into Super Clamps to hang crossbars on Autopoles. But they also work wonderfully with Super Clamps to hang Profoto packs from light stands. Since it's Manfrotto, it's well-made and will last for years. All that being said, the price is more than fair. Very satisfied.

                                          Comments about Manfrotto 039 U-Hook Cross Bar Holders for Super Clamp - Pair:

                                          I use these for holding backdrops and lighting. It really frees up studio space and releases the need for a lot of stands all around. I use 3 with two DA-LITE cross poles and can go between hanging backdrops and 7 ft scrims with ease. Then I use a fourth to hang off daylight balanced continuous lighting when I need that extra amount of ambient to ensure solid focusing. If you have a combination of sleaved backdrops and cored backdrops you may want to go the same route. I also created my own pinned BD holder by using two super clamps each with a manfroto MA203 extension a couple of MA103 Spigots and two PHSBGS Replacement studs. That will fit almost everything from DALIGHT to Phototek and insure the background is held as high as possible and securely. I like this solution way better than the U Hook crossbar holders. for just a little bit more cost.

                                                These hooks are accessories for the Manfrotto Super Clamps: one hook is mounted in each of two clamps. I use a closet pole as a bar to hold seamless background rolls to clamp on cloth backdrops. Also, products can be hung with monofilament for photographing from a crossbar between the hooks. The Super Clamps can be clamped to any ordinary light stands as the base for these clamp-hook setups. Much less bulky than a dedicated background holder.

                                                  I switched from the 3-hook array (Manfrotto 045) because this one accepts thicker crossbars. The 045 only accepts 1/2 inch pipes, which is too flimsy for a wide seamless or Savage Infinity vinyl seamless. This one can take a 3/4 inch or a full inch conduit pipe, which is cheap and sturdy. I thought the 3-hook array 045 would save space but it just added more frustration. Other than that, this hook 039 has nothing special.
