      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

      By J6photo

      from Washington, D.C.

      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.

          Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

          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.

                        Need an extra light and no stand? Then get this clam and add one! What a great pair of extra hands when you need one! From lights to reflectors, this is a strong and reliable clamp that fits everything.

                              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!

                                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.

                                  Almost as nice as the real thing at a great price.

                                    during the past year, I have purchased a couple of these.

                                      This clamp works great. I've been able to mount to both flat surfaces, pipes and rods. Great when you need to mount something and don't have room for a tripod.

                                          Used with the flex arms from the same manufacturer. Was previously aware of these type units only from Manfroto. The Impact units are attractive, appear well made, heavy, and function well. The supplied vinyl pad may help with mounting on tubes, but these units will need additional padding if used on furniture surfaces.
