With its small form factor and light weight, the Impact Super Clamp with 5/8" Snap-In Pin from B&H is a handy piece of grip gear with a variety of uses on set or on the road. Although small in size, the clamp can support lights or accessories that are 0.5 to 2.1" in thickness and weigh up to 33 lb. The clamp is provided with a brass 5/8" pin with 1/4"-20 threads for use in the receiver of a light or to screw into threaded accessories. A 4.7" long, black 5/8" aluminum pin with an anti-twist hex base is also included for support of more than one item. The clamp comes with a polymer wedge for a more secure grip on flat objects.

The center hole is 1/4"-20. The two horizontal threaded holes are some other size. The two vertical holes are not threaded. Outside of the 1/4"-20 center hole uses, what accessories use these patterns?
The smaller holes on the back of the Super Clamp allow you to connect accessories to the Super Clamp. As an example, when holding multiple backgrounds on an autopole using a Super Clamp, you may connect the Manfrotto 045 Background Triple Hooks for Three Backgrounds (Box of 2), B&H # MA045, or the Impact Background Triple Hooks - Pair (Black), B&H # IMVPDH3W, via hex screws, or you may connect a single background hook such as the Impact ME-122P Single Background Holder Hooks for Super Clamps (2-Pack), B&H # IMME122P, which may be inserted into the hexagonal 5/8" hole on the back of the unit. There may be other accessories that would also work with the attachment points on a Super Clamp, but the ones listed above would be the popular ones and the ones we carry. We do also carry Super Clamp options that have a grip head connected to the Super Clamp, or connects two Super Clamps together.

What is the depth of the two M5 threaded holes? (So I can purchase the right M5 bolt length) Thanks in advance.
The M5 threaded holes are 15mm deep.

If the stud was oriented horizontally, parallel ...
If the stud was oriented horizontally, parallel to a table, could the 1/4-20 screw end hold 5-10 lbs. without snapping off? If not, is there a stud like this made out of steel, like a QR plate's screw?
I've never tried it in that configuration but would say yes but that weight would be the limit. It is a sturdy clamp. With that much weight, make sure it's secure and you might want to tether whatever you're clamping down. I'm assuming it's a camera. Hope that helps and good luck.

I'd like to attach this super clamp to a drop ceiling scissor clip. Will the pin receptacle take 5/8" stud (baby pin)?
Yes, this clamp will work with a 5/8" stud.

can you mount this clip directly to the wall?
can you mount this clip directly to the wall?
This has a clamping range of 0.5 to 2.1 ". I find it indispensable for its intended purpose. I don't believe it was designed to be attached to a wall. There are other alternatives designed specifically for that purpose.

I see that the accessory attachment point is 1/4-20. Would it be OK to drill and tap this bigger to 3/8-16 to accommodate my new Matthews magic arm? I don't want to ruin the structural integrity of the clamp.
Not sure I understand your question, but - there is a 5/8" stud socket that recieves and locks accessories like your magic arm. There is a threaded female fitting that is on the same face as the socket opening that is 1/4-20 and it looks like it could be tapped to 3/8 if you were careful. It might negate any warranty, however.

I like to use this for my canon 5D IV. Which ball head can i use? How attach ball head to it? Thanks!
The little brass piece called a stud fits securely into the clamp and is screwed tight. The one that ships with the clamp has a 1/4" thread, the same kind used in camera tripod sockets, but for a bullhead you typically need a 3/8" thread, so you would have to buy a stud with such a thread like the Manfrotto 036-38. You would then be able to mount your ball head onto the clamp. Another option would be to use a 3/8" to 1/4" reducer bushing with the stud included with the clamp. It's not going to be an incredibly robust fit, though, as the ball head base will only be pressing against the stud rather than the greater surface area of a tripod platform. That said, these clamps are generally used with a Manfrotto 244RC Magic Arm which includes a ball head of sorts (although you will need to replace the Manfrotto QR clamp with a Hejnar Photo FM244 clamp is your camera has an Area-Swiss style QR clamp). The Magic Arm gives you a lot more flexibility and clearance with camera placement.

Is there a way to adapt the clamp to a Junior pin?
This clamp was useful to me even yesterday clamping a long junior pin. A hard-rubber piece has to be removed for that but it's easy to put back in place. The whole clamp is sturdy and first class. No complaint here.
