      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.

          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.

                                  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!

                                        Will clamp fast and smooth. Sure it's a lightweight for lightweight use but it's small size does offer the ability to clamp it where a Super Clamp doesn't fit.

                                            Super useful clamp. I like the design, but don't tighten it too much. The first one I got snapped right in two the first time I clamped it on something. B&H sent me a new one no questions asked, but just be aware, it's not the most heavy duty clamp in the world.

                                            I use it to clamp my monitor arm to my camera and it works great. It is very strong and I feel confident that it will hold.

                                              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.

                                                  Great little clamp, that is well made and has many uses with its 1/4-20 & 3/8ths thread mount. I use it, along with a nasty clamp, as a DIY flag for lighting. If you own a friction arm, along with this clamp, you could mount numerous accessories.

                                                        If you're looking for something small, yet reasonably strong, with a very decent price, these are great! Well built, they feel like they'll stand up to normal use. Very happy with the 4 of them I've purchased.

                                                                      Got this to hold a tablet to the leg of my tripod when I take live view computer controlled shots.

                                                                      It's Metal with rubber grips. All looks sturdy and well built. Plenty of opening to wrap around a tripod leg. I like the spring loaded handle that can rotate out of the way after the clamp is tightened. Nice ergonomic touch. The metal parts are sized correctly to last.

                                                                      Right price. Low weight. Strong. Nice paint finish.

                                                                      My only gripe is that there isn't a bolt. It wouldn't add to the price that much to toss in a 1/4 - 3/8 double bolt for mounting stuff. It's customary for the mount to contain the bolt.
