    I use these with the 035 clamp to hold the rod for my backgrounds. All is safe and secure with that set-up.

            Used with two super clamps, these offer me more options to hang a cross bar and backdrops or other props with ease. Well made, lightweight, and inexpensive accessory if you already have Manfrotto Super Clamps.

              This is a low-tech product that does what it is supposed to do. It is high-quality European design and manufacture, not dubious quality Chinese junk that may endanger gear and lives.

                Comments about Manfrotto 039 U-Hook Cross Bar Holders for Super Clamp - Pair:

                Hooks fit any superclamp, light weight and pretty strong. I've yet to use them to hang a cross bar, but they're good for hanging packs on lightstands if you need to weigh the stand down or don't like your gear on the floor.
                Simple and works. Also way cheaper than buying them here in Canada.

                  I drilled out the hole in the bottom of the hook to accomodate a 3/8" carriage bolt. This secured my Da-Lite telescoping cross bar and made the system much safer.

                    Item holds items well, especially if you need a hook. It may be why the name has 'hook' in it.

                        These are strong and great for holding up backdrop rods. They lock in tight on a super clamp and stay put

                              Comments about Manfrotto 039 U-Hook Cross Bar Holders for Super Clamp - Pair:

                              Over the years, I have purchased lots of these U-Hooks. In my studio, I use lots of different seamless paper backgrounds, up to 12 ft. wide. These units really lock positively into Super Clamps, which I clamp to Manfrotto Autopoles. There is no risk of a 40 lb. roll of background paper falling off and breaking something. I put the rolls on lengths 1-in. steel EMT tubing, which rest in the hooks. There is a hole in the bottom of the hook to secure the tube with a screw. These units exhibit the usual high standards of Manfrotto design and manufacture. In a past life, I was a machinist. I can't think of any aspect of these hooks that isn't top notch metalworking.

                                        I use Deluxe Autopoles along with two manfrotto 035 super clamps and two manfrotto 039 "U" hooks made for use with the Super Clamp and electrical conduit to hang muslim backgrounds in a very small studio. The hooks and clamps make for a nice system but still requires clamps to stretch the cloth. Instructions aren't very clear for the poles but when you get it once it's easy.

                                            I use these to hold long bars with either a backdrop paper or a muslin background. They are simple, but work great. I will probably buy another set soon.
