        Comments about Kupo 4" Super Viser Clamp With Hex Receiver:

        The handle "spins" very well and is quite easy to grip. I use this clamp mainly to hold my 3/4" metal conduit diffusion frame. As the other reviews covered many of other creative uses of this product, its hard to add more. I've used this to clamp (with added plywood/OSB/particle board) to the top of a cabinet when there was no room to hide the light stand in the same area. I think of it as a vice that just happens to have a baby reciever on it, so the use on set is extensive. I have also read they can be be prone to theft so I keep my eyes on mine! I am a little concerned about the rubber inside the clamps (I live in a hot dry climate and rubber dies a slow death here), but I expect the rubber to last many years here regardless.

        Large but Excellent

          Comments about Kupo 4" Super Viser Clamp With Hex Receiver:

          I use this product to secure Photoflex LitePanels overhead of my portrait subjects on 2 light stands, to block sunlight from directly above.

          The fit and finish of the product is first rate. A clever groove notched into the back of the clamp keeps the jaws aligned with one another as they open and close. The construction could be described as "tank like".

          I use this tool along with either a Manfrotto Lite-Tite or, for heavier applications, one of the excellent Chimera single or dual axis stand adapters.

          The Kupo is a variation on the Cardellini clamp which is very popular in the movie industry. These clamps are quite large. On their website, Kupo says the length is about 9" in total but it is closer to 12". What the Kupo has, that other Cardellinis do not, is a hex receptacle at the end near the none-moving jaw. This allows you to pop a hex end spigot (not included) in and mount the unit to the Lite-Tite so that the weight of the panel (or whatever else you are gripping) is close to the Lite-Tite rather than suspended nearly a foot away which it would be if you used the baby spigot built into the other end of the clamp.

          Using the Super Viser you can put a death grip on whatever you clamp or you can ease back. The jaws are rounded and have a high friction lining. By easing back on the clamping force the LitePanel frames can pivot in the jaws thereby making it easier for me to raise one light stand at a time. It also makes attaching a large LitePanel to 2 stands a much simpler job for one person.

              Comments about Kupo 4" Super Viser Clamp With Hex Receiver:

              This is basically a cardellini that has an extra baby pin receiver on one end. If you're familiar with cardellinis, this one is as good as any I've used. If you've never used one, it'll clamp just about anything to just about anything else! Much more secure than a mafer (especially on flat surfaces). ONE MINOR CON --- They're so nice, they seem to "disappear" from set more often than other items!!!

                Really solidly built. Basic but versatile design. Used it with a grip head; liked it much more than a superclamp.

                  I use this clamp for many things. With 2 of them I can put up a portable green screen, hang or mount a light almost anywhere, hold a light boompole, mount a griphead to hold a flag by a small light - with the right attachment to the stud, it can hold up to a 9" LED field monitor (Ikan 9v) - only your imagination will limit you.
