No tripod- no problem

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

This Super Clamp is great for the unexpected. I've clamped it to police barricades and fighter plane roll bars. Who needs a tripod?

T handle is OK for tight spaces

By cameraperson

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

The long ratchet handle is better. Generally. But the T handle is almost as good in most situations.
The clamp is perfect either way. You can clamp and it stays put forever.

    Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

    There's really nothing wrong with this version/brand of this clamp. No, it's not the priciest version nor the sexiest name brand, but it's totally fine for use in your location kit or studio.

    This version of this type of clamp is fine for its intended purpose: generally, attaching a speed light (or other device with a 1/4-20 thread) to something else like a pipe or part of another light stand. For that, it works great. I might hesitate to use Impact brand grip gear like this on a professional film set (ok, I would 100% hesitate to use Impact brand grip gear on a professional film set) but that's not what this mafer is for. It's for hobbyists and stills people, and for us (them?) it's totally fine.

    I don't expect this thing to last forever, but construction is generally pretty good and I don't have any real misgivings about use or ownership of this mafer. Or super clamp. Or whatever you want to call it.

        Cheap and works

        By Tess

        from Brooklyn

        Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

        There are many more versions of this exact same thing. This works and it's cheap. The first one I bought broke after three years of constant use. I think that's a pretty good deal

        Simple & effective

        Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

        Not as heavy duty as the Matthews clamps, and I'm not crazy about the handle, I prefer the Matthews. But these are lighter in weight and well made, so you can't beat the price.

          Heavy - but that's a plus! Bought this to mount a large battery to the back of my DSLR videography shoulder rig - together, the clamp and battery make a great counterweight to the camera. Seems strong and sturdy, would buy again.

            I've used Manfrotto Super Clamps as a mainstay in studio and on location. These are virtually identical (I can't see a difference) but are much less expensive. Super strong and a great multipurpose clamp for mounting lights and hanging backdrops. I use this with the Impact Pivot Arm when I need to fit a light or reflector in a tight space.

            I use the T-handle version when using them against a wall when I can't rotate the ratchet handle without hitting something.

                  Strong and remarkably well made clamp. Purchased to hold a lighting fixture with 5/8" receiver, which worked perfectly. Should be capable of much heavier loads. A great buy at the price!

                      It does what it needs to do. I also own a manfrotto version which is a better build quality, but like I said, this does the job.

                        This looks almost the same as my manfrotto super clamp. It works like it should and is really solid. I got a set of these to mount small speakers to lightstands that support a projection background.

                                I bought this Super Clamp to use with the 8-1 Lastolite TriFlip reflector! I also purchased an umbrella swivel to use so that I could get the reflector into any position I needed to get it into! These two devices blows the lid off of the Lastolite model of holder they make with the flash holder! Although it doesn't hold a flash, I have a second Super Clamp that can be used to hold the flash & if it's on a separate stand, you can move it anywhere you like when shooting through the diffuser! … A win, win in my book!

                                  Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

                                  Paired with other devices like a ball joint tripod head or a flash bracket, you can get really creative with this simple but effective tool. The rubber grips are nice, hard enough to get a tight grip but shouldn't leave bite marks on wooden surfaces (when used responsibly). I love having the ability to swap out the 1/4" 20 bolt with a 5/8", or ideally a magic arm. Items like this are often overlooked when building up your camera kit, but bang-for-buck they're a purchase worth considering between larger purchases.
