    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.

                    I want to give this a good rating because it seems sturdy and I'm excited about using it. I will say, though, that as you open up the clamp to fit around larger objects, it doesn't open uniformly. Is is wider at the mouth end than it is at the back, so this may limit how large of an object you can clamp onto. I bought it because my KC-Lite 8.0 doesn't have anywhere that I can easily attach my external monitor (or at least not near where the jib attaches to the fluid head, which is where I would think you'd want to locate your monitor.

                      The only issue I have with this clamp is that it doesn't clamp the legs on my tripod. I couldn't find anyplace on my tripod that I could get it to work and just about sent it back. I decided to design a spacer for it and then printed it on my 3D printer and it works great now. You might need a spacer to use this but it clamps very well.
                      The jaws clamp down to 12mm (1/2") so make sure your item is larger than that. The legs on my tripod are a 'D' shape and it just wouldn't work until I made my spacer.

                              This is a sturdy and versatile little gadget. Along with the 8.3" (21.1cm) Articulating Israeli Arm by Pearstone, I've clamped a 7" monitor (Lilliput's 667GL-70NP/H/Y) to the Pan Handle of our camera tripods. Holds the weight and allows a better view for Camera Operators than the tiny flip-out monitor on the camera. Especially when the camera is on a 7 or 8 foot tripod.

                              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.

                                      Awesome Awesome clamp. I use this for mounting timelapse cameras outside in the rain to mounting monitors on a jib and the MoVI M15. All around great clamp.

                                          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.

                                              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.
