Going plastic isn't the answer

I bought this clamp to use with the Manfrotto Magic Arm, 244RC. It works very well with the arm. I am sure that Manfrotto used to make these with metal handles that ratcheted. I have found several times that I wish that I had the ratcheting feature, even only owning the Magic arm and this clamp for only a week. I typically am trying to clamp it down to something that is in a tight space and not being able to ratchet limits where I can clamp it.

The stud is useful if you have a studio with lights because you can put them right on the clamp.

I have also found that it really can't clamp to ANYthing. Some tables are too thick as well as other surfaces. Always use the included flat thingy when clamping to flat surfaces because although you can use the clamp on a flat surface without it, you also leave a line in the paint or wood where you clamp it.

Even with the few things I have found wrong with it the Manfrotto Superclamp with stud securely clamps to bicycles (even the main frame) tables, i-beams of buildings and small tree branches.

Super Clamp OK but Stud bad quality

superclamp is strong and can support weight but be careful with studs as it broked and could not support a Dslr + objectivo (around 2kg)

    Comments about Manfrotto 035RL Super Clamp with Standard Stud:

    Sturdy, solid, works exactly as it should. Typical Manfrotto product- not the cheapest, not the most expensive, but a great combination of high quality and a reasonable price.

      Used for general purpose fixture and setup tasks.

      The fit and finish are excellent,and the supplied stud is superior to those supplied with knock-offs.

      One innovation I saw on a competing product this could benefit from is a repositionable clamping handle - the handle can be pulled out and repositioned if its angle gets in the way.

        Comments about Manfrotto 035RL Super Clamp with Standard Stud:

        I know this clamp is useful for much more than attaching a GoPro to a car top or pipe on a safari truck, but it works great for this. I don't have to make sure the windshield is clean or if there will be a glint on the windsield. I also don't have to worry about it coming off. You clamp this thing on and the GoPro isn't going anywhere. It comes off easily too.

        The only downside is the weight/size. This is a serious clamp that will hold your gear securely. It is kind big though.

          I quit buying the smaller clamps because they either strip out or fail all together when I use them to hold my 7" monitor on my video cameras. The Super Clamp is so versatile and has several mounting areas. I've never had one fail.

          Solid, Given the Right Application

          By Robtography LLC

          from Alameda CA

          Comments about Manfrotto 035RL Super Clamp with Standard Stud:

          I'm a sports photographer, and I use Magic Arms with SuperClamps to mount remote DSLR cameras. The Clamp works very well on 1-inch and 2-inch diameter pipes, which are ubiqutous in most sporting venues. So long as I can get the jaws around the desired mounting spot, the Clamp is easily tightened and remains in position. I find I cannot secure the clamp to 4-inch pipes (which are also commonplace) or chainlink fence. The Clamp is strong and durable, though I'd like to see metal tightening arms rather than plastic.

              I have 4 of these (so far) and use them on autopoles, tables, even a stepstool, to hold lights and accessories. Very solid, I think that if I had 10 I'd find a use for all of them.

                                  This is a good quality clamp and it's Manfrotto all the way. But very often I am in situations where the handle gets stuck in an awkward spot and/or I need more leverage to tighten our loosen. I have other clamps that allow me to reposition the handle by pulling it out slightly. This clamp needs to have that feature.

                                          Bought a few of these to hold my lumedyne battery packs (using some J hooks) to some light stands. Was concerned initially over the weight capacity of these clamps and the potential to cause damage to my light stands.
                                          Well... these clamps EASILY hold the large battery packs and doesn't mark the light stands at all.
                                          Very happy with these clamps and highly recommend them.
