Altman MSC reviews

Mini Safety Cable is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as advertised, but still usable Ordered several of these for securing remote lights and cameras, but they are definitely not the same ones that are shown in the photo. The cable is a much smaller gauge, and the actual clasp is wire, rather than the snap clasp or latch as shown. Instead of using these for my original ideasecuring a strobe assemblyI decided to use them to secure my reflectors to the strobes. They work great for that task as they're small and lightweight and stay out of the way, but I would never trust them to hold up an entire strobe. They definitely have their place and use, but don't look at the photo as a good representation of the product. I'd recommend them, but I probably wouldn't want any more than a pound or two hanging from these over my head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind I do panoramic photography, often shooting from a pole. In the last 6 months I have had 2 cameras slip out of apparently well tightened arca-style clamps and fall. So now I am using this fine little safety cable religiously. I leave one of these cables permanently attached to each of my pano heads. The little extra time it takes to clip the cable to the camera's strap ring is nothing compared to the peace of mind it creates.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheapest safety cable, but not best. The photo makes it a lot larger than it actually is. The actual cable is only about the diameter of thick mechanical pencil lead. While I'm sure it can hold a reasonable amount of weight, the price is not effective. You could build four, with equal fit and function from raw cable as you could buying this product. The clip is a weak point, and would be the first thing to fail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Xtra Safety! I use this as extra security when I put speedlites on remote clamps and also my camera when it is attached to my monopod (quick release). It is extremely flexible and unobtrusive. It is thinner than I thought it would be. Probable around 20 gauge or so. I suspect it will support around 4 lbs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Much weaker than product image shows The product photo isn't correct. The gauge of the wire is TINY compared to the photo. I am sure you can find a much heavier duty safety cable for about the same price. I elected to not use the ones I bought.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mini Safety Cable by Altman Lighting These work just fine. Although for use with my AB lights I would like to see cables with other options to secure to the lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin, flexible, does its job Securely holds tota light on various mounts.
