Mine came with no instructions. How do you adjust the spring tension? The springs are so stronge out of the package that it does not keep its position - it flies up to full extension.
Asked by: Steve
Yes - using 23oz microphone. If i hang a 5-lb dumbell on the mic the upper arm will come down, but the pivot at the table clamp will not hold position. Terrible engineering.

You can use a thread adapter like the CAMVATE 5/8" Female to 1/4"-20 Male Mic Stand Adapter (B&H # CAC0988) to convert the post to attach an item that requires a 1/4"-20 thread.
