      I was looking for a versatile bracket to mount a medical monitor to a variety of locations including round poles and rectangular rails. I also needed some flexibility for attaching my device to the clamp.
      Most of the options I found were very expensive without providing exceptional functionality. Most also required additional modification to allow my device to attach I then found this clamp, and it literally checked every box I needed. It attaches securely to both round and rectangular pieces. I can attach to it with either a 3/8" or a 1/4" screw without having to modify the part. The ratchet handle allows for use in tight spaces. And on top of it all, the price is about 1/3 of any similar clamp I found.

      Seemed like a great substitute for the pricier Manfrotto Nano Clamp, but the bolt that attaches the threaded clamping pin is way too small for the job. Moderately tightening the clamp, the little bolt snapped under the tensile load. Looks like the Manfrotto doesn't use a bolt to attach the pin, so it looks more robust.

      Comments about Impact Atom Clamp with Ratchet Handle:

      Bought this to attach a small video camera to a 3x9 rifle scope and it works brilliantly. By far the best product out there. When this is clamped down it does not move. Just what I was looking for.

                  I bought this clamp because I use a lot of flashlights and I wanted something than the superclamp to hold one to a tripod. This one is just as well built as a Manfrotto and cheaper also. I recommend it.

                      Comments about Impact Atom Clamp with Ratchet Handle:

                      This would be a very handy little clamp, but there is one glaring flaw with the unit I got: the hex cap screw that holder the threaded bolt (that opens and closes the clamp) to the pivot on the jaw opposite the handle is too short, and barely grips in the threads on the bolt. Thus as soon as you exert any sort of clamping pressure, it pulls fee and the whole clamp flops apart. I'll have to get a longer cap screw from the local hardware store. Once I do that, and add a little thread lock, I'm sure it will be a great clamp.

                          I used to this clamp to mount a Teradek video receiver on top of
                          a monitor - aka no weight.

                          The rod that pulls the clamp together snapped in half after like 5 uses.

                          Lame.

                                I love this things size and weight especially when compared to the super clamp.

                                If you don't need the pin attachment of the super clamp get one of these instead and save yourself some space.

                                      This is one of those items that you should have in your toolbox when on a shoot. Maybe to hang an external recorder or extra monitor, whatever. Not very big or heavy, it just works. Next time I place an order I may add another. Having a spare can't be a bad thing.

                                                  Seemed like a great substitute for the pricier Manfrotto Nano Clamp, but the bolt that attaches the threaded clamping pin is way too small for the job. Moderately tightening the clamp, the little bolt snapped under the tensile load. Looks like the Manfrotto doesn't use a bolt to attach the pin, so it looks more robust.

                                                      This clamp is small and very well made. I bought it for mounting a speedlite to a pole.

                                                              I'm tired of everything being designed around a camera hot-shoe or a 1/4 x 20 thread, neither of which I typically use. This clamp and the arm I purchased with it are a secure, versatile way to attach a monitor or other light accessory to professional equipment, in my case a jib.

                                                              Since there are so many aks designed to use 1/4 x 20, the two threads included bridge the gap into that world.

                                                                I did not use this clamp for photography, but instead a mounting clamp to attach a shooting table to my wheelchair. I shoot 10m Air Rifle with aspirations for making the Paralympics and needed a small quick-disconnect clamp to mount the extruded aluminum table. The Impact Atom clamp works perfectly for holding a stable platform and if I'm lucky, you'll see it during the Paralympics in Rio or at least in Tokyo 4 yrs later! Thanks, guys, for making a super-useful clamp!

                                                                  This little guy has been a great time saving investment. It's easy on the pocket book and allows me to easily add or remove my LED lights from my monopod when shooting on the go digital stills or hd video. It takes just a few seconds to clamp down and works great. With the male to male 1/4" adapter screw, it easily held my 7" field monitor in place! It's built rock solid and I'm looking forward to picking up a few more in the coming weeks!
