    Drop Ceiling Scissor Clamp with Baby (5/8") Pin is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grip's Delight You may have heard the old adage You can't have enough of these. That proved true on my last shoot. For years I've carried a handful of these scissor clamps for suspending lighting on basic interviews in office spaces or rooms with a drop ceiling. My last shoot . . . I needed more--a lot more. Whatever you think you're going to need, double--even triple--your order to cover your bases. You'll be glad you did when the need arises. Matthews Scissor Clamps are well made, easy to use and they get the job done. Can't live without them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have accessory! I always keep a bunch of these in my toolbox for quick setup on location or temporary sets. These are the first ones I have bought in a long time to replace some old ones that were getting a little stiff in the sciccor clamp. These seem to be built well. I bought 8 of them and it looks like they came from 2 or 3 different batches as there are slight variations in some of them - for example, two of them have texturing in the recessed area of the pin for added grip, but the others do not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drop Ceiling Clamps Save Time and Money The Matthews Drop Ceiling Scissor Clamp is a very convenient product that allows a videographer or film maker to utilize the rail supports between the drop ceiling tiles (found commonly in commercial office spaces and store fronts). The clamp affixes to the drop ceiling rails in a scissor-like fashion, simply expand the clamp and tighten it snuggly around the floated ceiling tile support rail. The Matthews Drop Ceiling Scissor Clamp creates an instant rigging point for small light-weight lamps like a Mole Richardson Inky or Tweenie. I like the portable, simple, but secure design, and the universal 5/8 Baby Pin that allows for common grip rigging. There are very few draw backs to having a few of these Matthews Drop Ceiling Scissor Clamps in your grip or light rigging kit. The only drawback for the Matthews Drop Ceiling Scissor Clamp is more of a limitation in drop ceiling design and not the clamp itself. The Matthews Drop Ceiling Scissor Clamp is NOT poorly made. Rather floated ceilings are generally suspended to the structurally load-bearing beams by multiple points using bailing wire. This reality limits the amount of additional weight that can be hung from each point. I always check to make sure I'm not more than a few feet from a structural rigging point to be certain the floated ceiling will not fail.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid. heavy this thing will last forever! the wire holder is a nice add on. at first I though it was broken, as the thing wouldn't spread open. Since it doesn't have instructions, it took a while to figure out that you need to unscrew the spigot to unlock it. it's a vlever idea, I just didn't expect it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes lighting in offices easy! A must-have if you ever shoot in office environments or other areas with dropped acoustical tile ceilings. With lightweight LED lighting fixtures, you can rig them directly to the ceiling with no problem. And, they fit in the lighting bag so easily. Excellent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from useful in small spaces If you have a drop ceiling in a small space, this can be a very useful tool. Only use small-to-medium sized lights, drop ceilings are not very strong. Careful not to mount the light too close to a fire detector either, heat can set them off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential, with the price I use this for hanging lights, flags etc. from drop ceilings. Much better than the off-brand equivalents- does not come loose, the bends in the cable support keep the cables in place.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Essential Tool for my G&E Kit We do a lot of shooting in offices with wide sweeping shots. Having Drop Ceiling Clamps is essential. I am very happy we acquired these.
