The Impact Super Clamp Works well as a tripod substitute if you can find
a place to mount it. I'm using it to avoid carrying a tripod and as a
substitute for a Joby Gorillapod. The Gorillapod did not grip well
enough to be practicable. I first tried the Impact Super Clamp with
only a Sunwayfoto DDC-60i Screw-Knob Clamp to hold the camera but that
overly restricted camera positions and did not allow panning for
panoramas. I then tried a Joby Ballhead X (see picture), which works
well. Since I now had the Sunwayfoto Clamp, which has a nice level, I
replaced the Joby's clamp with the Sunwayfoto. Obviously the Sunwayfoto
is an unnecessary frill. The Impact Super Clamp and the Joby Ballhead X
provide an entirely adequate Arca-Swiss compatible mount.

Super - For Sure!

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with Ratchet Handle:

The Impact Super Clamps are great.. Just to darn many uses to list but they are the handiest things to have around.. I put Arca-Swiss QR mounts on them to increase their flexibility.. Super well made and strong.. I prefer the T-Handle ones but other than the handle they are both exactly the same.. They are a great value for the price..

Best piece of gear I've bought in a while. SOLID build. Good gear. Better than you. The spud is perfect for mounting cameras on cross bars for extreme overhead shots. Mad grip and super sturdy. Lock off shots with this guy.

Awesome

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with Ratchet Handle:

These things are great for those random clamp needs. Great for a background or makeshift light mount. Will grab onto almost anything securely and has a post to mount anything that will take a junior stud or 1/4-20 threaded mount.

Solid Grip clamp!

By Daniel

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with Ratchet Handle:

Does as advertised, clamps a ton of stuff. A must have for grip kits. Goes on a baby stud no problem and even allows you to screw on accessories. Very versatile. The clamp closes all the way so you can pinch even thin silk as I have with a frame and it holds it in place well.

The Clamp That Saved the Strob LAMP

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with Ratchet Handle:

The Super Clamp is simple to use and setup. The instruction aren't that great. The first time you use it just look for all the parts and you can figure it out from there. Is amazing that this simple clamp along with the mounting bar make life easier using the Pocket Wizard Transmitter/Receivers.

One of the Best Grip Inventions

By Randall

Verified Buyer

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with Ratchet Handle:

Very handy device. The Super Clamp has numerous uses in photography and video. I use with a Paul C Buff VagaBond Mini to bracket the battery to a light stand. Another use is mounting two on top of light stands and mounting a rod for a background. My latest use is with the Manfrotto magic arm for mounting a remote camera in sports. The uses never end. A very useful gadget.
