I bought this Super Clamp to use with the 8-1 Lastolite TriFlip reflector! I also purchased an umbrella swivel to use so that I could get the reflector into any position I needed to get it into! These two devices blows the lid off of the Lastolite model of holder they make with the flash holder! Although it doesn't hold a flash, I have a second Super Clamp that can be used to hold the flash & if it's on a separate stand, you can move it anywhere you like when shooting through the diffuser! … A win, win in my book!

Used six of these to mount strobe lights for an overhead light bank. They secure firmly to the I-beam rafters in our building without risk of coming loose.

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

I had no clue this was going to be so substantial and useful. I like to browse and hope and sometimes, I come back and buy what I had my eye on.
I actually, seriously, have two of these hooked to the front of a 48" wide wire shelving unit that I use to store stuff I sell on eBay. I have a crossbar set up on them with the j-hooks that are sold here as accessories also by Impact. 
This setup makes a great background holder (and bonus junk hider) for my product photos and other things as well!
Thanks for carrying the product B&H and thanks to Impact for the VERY high-quality product at a VERY fair price!

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

I ordered two of these clamps to replace another brand that was just too weak to work for me. I use them to hold an 11' articulated arm and a LED light. They are so solidly built that I'm sure they could handle much more weight and they cost less than the other brand I bought. I especially love the solid "T" type tightening knob. So much better than a ratcheting type handle. Good reliable product. Excellent value.

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

The T-handle on this product makes it more useful than the lever on the equivalent Manfrotto product, because it lets you get into tighter spaces. The ring under the T-handle actually seems to be better than the Manfrotto one, too. The adapter to make the v-shaped interior of the clamp flat doesn't really stay hooked onto the screw where it is in the picture, but it's probably not a very good idea to store it there anyway. When you tire of the fear of your $1000 camera falling off a $10 clamp, this is the product to buy.

T handle is OK for tight spaces

Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

The long ratchet handle is better. Generally. But the T handle is almost as good in most situations.
The clamp is perfect either way. You can clamp and it stays put forever.

    • General Use

    Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

    There's really nothing wrong with this version/brand of this clamp. No, it's not the priciest version nor the sexiest name brand, but it's totally fine for use in your location kit or studio.

    This version of this type of clamp is fine for its intended purpose: generally, attaching a speed light (or other device with a 1/4-20 thread) to something else like a pipe or part of another light stand. For that, it works great. I might hesitate to use Impact brand grip gear like this on a professional film set (ok, I would 100% hesitate to use Impact brand grip gear on a professional film set) but that's not what this mafer is for. It's for hobbyists and stills people, and for us (them?) it's totally fine.

    I don't expect this thing to last forever, but construction is generally pretty good and I don't have any real misgivings about use or ownership of this mafer. Or super clamp. Or whatever you want to call it.

        Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

        There are many more versions of this exact same thing. This works and it's cheap. The first one I bought broke after three years of constant use. I think that's a pretty good deal

        Comments about Impact Super Clamp with T-Handle:

        Not as heavy duty as the Matthews clamps, and I'm not crazy about the handle, I prefer the Matthews. But these are lighter in weight and well made, so you can't beat the price.

          Heavy - but that's a plus! Bought this to mount a large battery to the back of my DSLR videography shoulder rig - together, the clamp and battery make a great counterweight to the camera. Seems strong and sturdy, would buy again.

            I've used Manfrotto Super Clamps as a mainstay in studio and on location. These are virtually identical (I can't see a difference) but are much less expensive. Super strong and a great multipurpose clamp for mounting lights and hanging backdrops. I use this with the Impact Pivot Arm when I need to fit a light or reflector in a tight space.

            I use the T-handle version when using them against a wall when I can't rotate the ratchet handle without hitting something.
