    Center Jaw Vise Grip is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Westcott jaw vise grip I think there a little wimpy. The good thing about these clamps is there useful for other purposes. I'm replacing them with the Digital Juice Frame Clamps. There overkill, but I like overkill.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from this product is OK This works Okay but I went and ordered the Mathews version I expect it to be more substantial.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not quite as good as I hoped for the price I bought this to hold my 4x4 scrim jim. It won’t the scrim jim to the side as pictured in the scrim jim directions. Cranking it down super tight and the scrim jim still sags. It holds fine when gripping the top or bottom of the scrim jim frame, but if you need to put it out to the side, good luck.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stem is not practical buy something different If you are using them with a grip head the stem will only fit into the smallest grip hole of the grip head at which they will jam the head from opening back up. SO you will need a screwdriver to pry the grip head open.  THis is not a good match for a grip head which B & H recommends when purchasing. I highly recommend getting something like these but with a thicker stem.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from good clamp, strange stem This looks like a Cardellini...umm...homage...clamp works well to hold onto the frame of the scrim jim. Not really sure about the threaded stem, though. Maybe we were misusing it, but it got jammed inside a standard Matthews grip head twice, and locked the grip head up. Very weird, baffled both the gaffer and me. Other than that, liked it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very effective Once I worked out it had to grip the metal of the Scrim Jim frame (not the velcro) worked a treat. Works fantastically well with the Matthews C-stand, but the vise grip itself a little hard to tighten with one hand whilst holding a Scrim Jim with the other!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pretty useless I bought this hoping it will do a better job holding the Westcott Scrim Jim Cine but there are other cheaper clamps you can buy off ebay that would do a better job. pretty much never going to use this on the Scrim Jim it was built for

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vice doesn't hold well at all Maybe I don't know what I'm doing, but as much as I tighten the grip part it is still not holding my scrim jim safely. I decided to bypass the vice and just screw it into the hole in my scrim jim.

    Is one end of the shaft 1/4-20 thread?
    Asked by: J L.
    No. Just the main thread visible in the ad. No female threads either end.

    Would this work better than a Matthellini/Cardellini clamp for the Scrim Jim Cine Frame?
    Asked by: Diego
    Diego,Both should work well.
