Very solid and useful in so many ways. I shoot video and this little guy is a necessity in tight areas. I used this in place of the standard 5/8" pin that comes with most super clamps. I needed and extra inch or two for an LED light head to mount inverted from the dashboard of a car. The standard studs were too short to clear the stereo unit. If anything, I wish the 5/8" stud part was threaded too but you can always buy a manfrotto rapid adapter.

The adapter is aluminum, so it's not heavy duty light most of the "baby" 5/8" products out there. I wouldn't trust it with a large weight. I wouldn't want to tighten the secure screw very much for fear of it breaking, but it seems to loosen itself very easily. Overall not a very good product.

        Comments about Impact 5/8" Snap-in Pin for Super Clamps (Black):

        I needed longer 5/8" spuds/pins for my Manfrotto 035 Super Clamps… the stock pins wouldn't work with American C-Stand heads because they were too short. (I usually use my clamps to support my microphone fishpoles and I don't want or need a $2000 mic crashing to the floor in the middle of a take.) These pins fit the bill perfectly and the black finish is a bonus and looks great with my Manfrotto/Bogen mafer clamps!

            Not what I was looking for but so inexpensive it cost me more to send it back. So looking for a use.

                  If you lost your pin for your Mafer clamp, then this is great replacement. It's a little longer but it's fits and locks in just fine.

                      It's better than holding a light yourself.
