Small and light enough to carry in a jacket pocket, the Manfrotto Nano Clamp is like a mini version of the popular Super Clamp. Weighing in at just 4.4 oz and featuring a ratcheting aluminum handle, the Nano Clamp can support a load up to 8.8 lb. The clamp features a redesigned gripping surface, patented unexposed thread system, and high friction tape which improves the grip on pipes, poles, and tubes. This, and the fact that it incorporates 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 female taps, makes it well suited for use with a wide variety of lighting gear. The clamp comes with a 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 camera screw adapter.
- Load Capacity: 8.8 lb
- 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 Female Threads

Manfrotto Nano Clamp Reviews
Better Than Lookalikes
There are several clamps being sold which have a very similar design to the Manfrotto Nano Clamp, and I debated about spending more than twice what some of the other brands cost. However, after actually receiving the Manfrotto clamp and comparing it more closely to the photographs of the other brands, it is evident that the Manfrotto is made more robustly. You'll have to decide whether that more solid build is worth the extra money to you. Personally, if I'm going to hang some expensive equipment off my tripod, a few extra dollars is good insurance. I especially like that the handle is on a ratchet so that no matter what the handle orientation after tightening, the handle can be rotated to be out of the way. Yes, the handle is plastic, but I believe it's a phenolic-type plastic that's very strong. If you torque the clamp to the point where the handle breaks, you need a bigger clamp.
Another great product from Manfrotto
This well-designed and well-made product worked great; smaller than Super Clamp, but had a great gripping power. Allowed the user to grip poles with confidence. The 1/4 and 3/8 mounting points were well-appreciated.
Good gear, but not any better than small rig which is a lot less expensive.
Wish the handle was metal
The ratchet handle is plastic. I wish it was metal to make it feel more sturdy.
I use this to mount a 244 Micro Friction arm to my ronin. Solid without having to over tighten.
Clamp like you mean it
This little device is a nifty addition to your camera bag. I use it to attach my OCF in spots a stand simply can't reach. Well worth it.
Very well made
I currently use this to hold a focus card. That may seem like overkill, but it has many other uses, as well. Seems like you can't have too much grip gear.
Not very heavy duty
I bought this to use for clamping my insta360 one x2 for a VR shoot. I used the extension pole hooked to this clamp. It seemed to work pretty good for a couple day shoot. The next shoot I used it on, I must have tightened it beyond it's ability and it is locked up now and won't turn in or out. I definitely used it beyond it's capabilities, but if it helps a purchase decision for this purpose, I would get something heavier duty.
