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)

      Super clamps can be used for all kinds of things. I have about eight of them, and find them indispensable.

                I use the clamp when traveling to Kenya and I use a gamble head. The clamp is mounted rails on the side of the vehicle. It was a great fitting and enabled me to have a steady mount giving me great shots.

                      Don't even try buying the cheaper version of this super clamp. You will cry while throwing it out the window. Just buy this one! With a J hook! You won't be sorry.

                      missing the must-have ratchet feature

                      By AndyCollings

                      from Chicago

                      Comments about Manfrotto 035RL Super Clamp with Standard Stud:

                      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.

                              This thing is like a tank! Really sturdy and solid build. I love the safety pin mechanism as well. It's really great when you're hanging from the clamp.

                                    Not sure what I can say that hasn't been said already. This thing has a million uses and has quickly become an indispensable piece of my kit.

                                        This is a versitile clamp that we used 3 of them for mounting LED light fixtures for a trade show. The 2 threaded holes provided us with optional mounting as opposed to the stud. B&H will see our business again.

                                            I use these to attach some battery packs to light stands. Works great. Solid clamp.

                                            While in Puerto Rico with my son, I saw him clamp his 5D to a bridge rail for a picture of a waterfall. Later, he told me their was not room for his tripod. So, the Super Clamp was his solution. Right then, I knew I needed one. Now, I need a head of some kind for it.
