Going plastic isn't the answer

I bought this clamp to use with the Manfrotto Magic Arm, 244RC. It works very well with the arm. I am sure that Manfrotto used to make these with metal handles that ratcheted. I have found several times that I wish that I had the ratcheting feature, even only owning the Magic arm and this clamp for only a week. I typically am trying to clamp it down to something that is in a tight space and not being able to ratchet limits where I can clamp it.

The stud is useful if you have a studio with lights because you can put them right on the clamp.

I have also found that it really can't clamp to ANYthing. Some tables are too thick as well as other surfaces. Always use the included flat thingy when clamping to flat surfaces because although you can use the clamp on a flat surface without it, you also leave a line in the paint or wood where you clamp it.

Even with the few things I have found wrong with it the Manfrotto Superclamp with stud securely clamps to bicycles (even the main frame) tables, i-beams of buildings and small tree branches.

missing the must-have ratchet feature

This is a good quality clamp and it's Manfrotto all the way. But very often I am in situations where the handle gets stuck in an awkward spot and/or I need more leverage to tighten our loosen. I have other clamps that allow me to reposition the handle by pulling it out slightly. This clamp needs to have that feature.

We use this clamp for several tasks - mounting a fixed camera to a railing or wall rack, mounting the receiver for a wireless transmitter, and for supporting a microphone receiver. Excellent purchase.

More useful than originally thought

Comments about Manfrotto 035RL Super Clamp with Standard Stud:

I bought this hoping I'd be able to stick a Lastolite TriFlip Grip Reflector Kit onto a light stand or tripod despite not finding others writing about it. It works!

When combing the two onto a small tripod of mine with a sandbag to help direct light, it's very flexible for getting light where needed. As a bonus, I've come to realize this clamp will help me place off camera flash in places there's no room for a tripod or light stand.

This clamp is now riding in my go bag. That means it's a used piece of equipment.

I would buy this product again.

Comments about Manfrotto 035RL Super Clamp with Standard Stud:

I bought this clamp to hold my 4'x6' scrim to my cine stands. It take 4 of them and they work so well and stand up to everyday use. There is a small plastic part that comes with the clamp that I had no idea what it was used for and I had to do research online to find out it's job. It would have been nice if the "pamphlet" that comes with the clamp explained it's purpose. Other than that I am very satisfied and would recommend this product.

              Great clamp. Very sturdy. Parts seem to be high quality. Tightened very well onto 1.5" square bar that I had to mount a camera on (wide angle balcony shot). It was larger than I expected it to be, which also makes it heavy, but if you're looking for reliable and sturdy, this is the clamp for you.

                  This thing can grip booth angular and tubular surfaces with ease. Be careful when tightening down on the grip as it's powerful and can crush metal tubes like those on light stands. You know your gear is secure with this clamp.
