Dinkum Systems 3099 Reviews
Won't attach to basic system.
I ordered this extension for my Actionpod Pro to give me a little more flexibility for different uses. Like many reviewers I found that adding the extension was extremely difficult as the the last female link on the extension just would not snap in place no matter how hard I tried. After wrestling with it for a few days I decided to remove that link to see if the one next to it would be a better fit and Voila! My theory is that the last link on the extension is probably shipped from the manufacturer having never been connected making it more difficult if not impossible to connect. After removing it, the extension functions albeit missing one of the links. This worked for me. Hope this helps others who may have experienced the same. Overall I'm extremely satisfied with Dinkum systems products. They are an invaluable tool in Photo/Video production.
Not Worth My Money
The dream of extending my Dinkum clamps did not end well when I ordered these. Unfortunately the size of these is JUSSSSST ENOUGH too small to where not even my hulkiest of friends is able to snap them in place. My dream is dead!
VERY DIFFICULT TO ADD NEW LINK
Id love to give this 5-stars, but it is very difficult to attach this added section. Its easy to attach one or two to each other, but with the whole strand, its nearly impossible. At the time of writing, I still havent been able to get it attached, and Im pretty strong. It is an innovative product however, and I do like it, but when you have the longer link added with the clamp on the end, its wiggles and turns. Trying with all my strength I couldnt get it to attach. One must take precautions as not to cause injury to oneself. Yes, its that difficult.
Have purchased two of these for the Action Pro. If you are easily frustrated or don't have massive upper body strength, don't purchase this product. It is all but impossible to attach. After an hour of sweaty struggle, I went to Dinkum's website. There I found a video explaining that, yes, this is a known problem, and perhaps you might add a bit of grease or dishwashing soap to ease the problem. Doesn't work. Still all but impossible to attach. On my most recent purchase, after lubricating both pieces, I had to use a small sledge hammer to get them to link. I can't recommend this.
I like the system
I needed an extension and replacement parts for some broken pieces, I like the system
Just boil some water, put it inside a pan with the hot water and it simply glides in
I use the Dinkum Systems accessories for hanging shotgun microphones for NFL games. Works great!
