These Impact clamps are of great quality in both design and build. They are a convenient clamp for use with many types of bounce boards. I highly recommend them.

Sturdy, heavy, kinda big

If you want to save a little cash on your platypus clamp, this is a perfectly good one to get. I have been using mine for some time now, and it's still solid as a rock. It actually feels a little heavier than the other duckbill I have in my kit, and the actual duck lips have quite a lot more surface area. I imagine this is good if you want to make sure your 4x bead board doesn't go flying away in the wind, but maybe not so good if you have a limited amount of space in the milk crate that has your clamps in it. In any case, while I am myself sometimes leery of Impact as a brand, in this case I think you're completely safe.

It worked as intended but I put excess pressure (testing how strong it was) on the handle while attached to a c-stand and it snapped at the welded joint. It was a quick and cheap fix, carried it to metal shop, the baby pin was welded back on and I sprayed the weld with silver spray paint. Not pretty but feels sturdier and works like normal. Good bang for buck but don't be too rough.
