    Manfrotto 042 reviews

    042 Extension Arm with 013 Double Ended Spigot - 6" is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 20.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done, and then some. This item when used with a super clamp is great for attaching a light to an autopole. Or, any vertical pipe or a lightstand that fits the jaws of the SC. Join two of these to form a 90 and allow the clamp to grip a horizontal surface like a table top or piece of granite. The spigot is vertical to hold a head or monolight in either case. Photographers are constantly challenged to maximize the equipment at hand. This item is fexible and fills the gap. Just get a pair of these to add to your gear. Just one of those things that may save your sanity while looking for a place to hang that extra light. (or reflector)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and handy item This is a great add-on to the Super Clamp. I bought 1 and ended up ordering 2 more right away. I have pipe near the ceiling to mount lights. Without this, the lights must necessarily be below the pipe. With this, I can that that extra few inches of clearance that make the light easier to use and better looking in my studio. Well worth the price. Watch out for the price. I've see this in other places at nearly twice what B&H is charging for it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The strongest link This extension arm is rock solid and makes using the super clamp much easier. As versatile as the super clamp is, I was having trouble tightening the knobs on some of my umbrella mounts when they were attached directly to it; there just wasn't enough room to get everything locked down easily in the limited real estate. The extension arm solves this problem by providing a strong mounting point with plenty of room to attach and position speedlites and strobes. I can now have an upright stud with plenty of clearance even when the super clamp is attached to a vertical surface. I have also put a 6-pound strobe with an octabox on the super clamp/extension arm combo with no worries. In fact, I feel better about the safety of the strobe using this combo than I do about using it on a stand. As long as the thing the super clamp is attached to is strong and solid, this thing is going nowhere.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for use with a Beauty Dish! I needed something small, sturdy and not too expensive to allow me to angle my 22 Alien Bees Beauty dish. The length of the beuty dish made it so I couldn't angle the head down, which was not what I wanted. I ordered this extension arm, which has made the angle I can tilt the beauty dish much more useable. The only bad thing is that I had to sand the silver stud end so that the strobe would fit on it. It's not a standard spigot size, but it only took about 10 minutes to sand it round to allow it to fit securely on my strobe. That's the only reason I gave it a 4/5 stars, but it's really well made and doesn't make my 13 foot light stand feel unstable at all. Just place the strobe over one of the legs and you'll be good to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful little arm Works, works rather well with any Super Clamp. Removes that clearance issue that can become a little PITA. Well made including the brass double spigot.
    Date published: 2013-09-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely useful accessory Well designed and a great price. I'll be using these for all sorts of applications to mount strobes, cameras and my audio recorder to either autopoles or tripods. The hex-shaped end prevents it from rotating so everything stays secure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Add On Product I use this arm to get my lights a little more off the beams in the arena with the super clamps.
    Date published: 2008-11-27
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job! I would definitely buy this again Solid construction. It simply does the job! I wanted to eliminate a separate light stand I was using to hold a reflector in my small studio. I bought this to insert in my SuperClamp (which is attached to my light stand for rim light.) I then attached my grip head holding my reflector holder onto this and it's a perfect set-up for a small space!
