I can't believe how strong these are

I use these to clamp on a zoom f3 to my rig. Trust it with my life.

Better Than Others!

This clamp out performs the others I have purchased. The others have reverse threading that makes it difficult to get a good tight clamp.

Great mini clamp at a great price.

I was in the market for mini clamps and this product certainly worked well. There are other much more expensive mini clamps on the market, but why pay more. This clamp did not fail to work, within the limits stated in the fact sheet. If you need a higher capacity clamp, Impact has larger clamps (also at great prices).

It holds

Does exactly what I need it to. Clamps to my tripods pan arm. It tightens down with strong force but it's still easy to loosen when I need to move it.

No complaints, clamps very nicely

I bought this to clamp a microphone stand to a piece of carbon fiber. It adjusts easily and feels very secure, and it's mostly black so it looks good from the ground. I'd definitely buy it again.

Great

Good to have. Smaller than it looks

Nice to have one of these in the toolbox, but the photos make it look much bigger than it is. I need something with a larger, sturdier grip and more mounting options. In all, I decided to keep it and additionally search for something larger for my immediate needs.

Would this support the weight of a 2lbs spotlight?
Asked by: Chris
I would say, yes on 2#. I use it mainly to hold GoPro mounts for bike handlebars, forks, tube. I also use it to mount battery packs to light stand. It holds the various mounts and cameras, batteries in the 2# range and manages the vibration of the ride, etc. My opinion is a yes.

Could this clamp be used to attach to the top edge of a vertical piece of plexiglass instead of a pipe, so as to be used to mount a light-weight object to the top edge of the plexiglass?
Asked by: James
Yes, you can use the clamp for your purpose.

question

size of threads of mount?
Asked by: Anonymous
Standard 1/4 20 and 3/8 16 threaded holes. Be warned though: this mount is NOT intended for mounting heavy items. I snapped off the retaining pin on this unit when I overtightened it on a tripod with a SmallHD DP7 on it. I am a bit of an overtightener, but I was still surprised. If you want to be able to CRANK something down and have it hold weight, go with the Manfrotto Super Clamp. A LOT more weight and bulk, but I have never seen one break, ever... I still use this to mount GoPro cams, mics, small lights, etc. But I went back the the Super Clamp for my monitors mounts. Just not willing to put an $1800 piece of gear on one anymore. Good to have a couple in your kit at this price though.
