Headline pretty much says it all. The jaw clamp is very versatile and can be used in "most" situations. I took the jaw clamp on a sledding trip with my two year old daughter and it worked out great. I clamped the mount on front of our sled which is made of soft foam with EPS core and had no issues. We had taken two sleds and switching from one sled to another was super easy.

Now the negatives. This clamp should be used for static or slow moving shots. The clamp worked fine when we were sledding (as we wanted little bit of movement to show some action); however, it was fiddling quite a bit when coming down a long bumpy slope. Again, this is probably not the best use for the clamp and therefore, I did not take away any stars.

It's very useful on a boating/camping trip where you have lot of things you can attach the clamp to. Other than my extension pole, this is the only other mount that I always carry around in my car. You will not be disappointed!

I got this as an extra mount for my motorcycle. The clamp is great and holds tight. The whole unit tends to vibrate pretty hard when travelling over about 50mph. I tried it in a few different locations, but the vibration was pronounced. I can see this being a handy mount for a lot of applications, but in my opinion it is not the best choice for motorsports.

Well built. The clamp is very strong - it should hold on to anything you attach it to. I plan to clamp onto the front of a canoe.

          Great for putting your go pro anywhere. It clamps to almost anything and can be directed is all directions. It will definitly enhance your creativity. I wish I had two necks for it sometimes to get the reach a little farther. It attached so quickly I use it almost exclusively.

              Surprising Grip

              from Knoxville, GA

              Comments about GoPro Jaws: Flex Clamp:

              I must say I was questionable about the gripping power of the clamp, but it proved me wrong. When it clamps down on whatever you are clamping it will stay. The only downside is the adjustable piece could be a little more fluid, when u are trying to set the Go Pro in a place that is a foot over your head and u have to constantly take it down to adjust the mount...it gets tiresome because the piece won't move accurately. Well I guess I could always get a taller ladder so I can get a grin on the mount...overall great product

              I mount GoPro cameras to all kinds of objects and surfaces. This clamp and gooseneck work perfect to attach and position a camera in many areas that are harder to get to than with a hard-fixed mount. Too much vibration can move the camera a bit on the gooseneck, but it hasn't been too much of a problem. The standard GoPro snap connectors for mounting the camera work very well

              It has a strong grip, I haven't tested it on my motorcycle, but clamped it on parts of my jeep.
              It does shake so video can be jerky. I haven't figured out how those youtube videos come out so well.
              I was going to clamp it to my sliders, but my leg would move it.

                  Comments about GoPro Jaws: Flex Clamp:

                  I already had one Jaws Clamp Mount by GoPro, and thought I could use another. I use my Hero3 and small video cameras for a variety of uses, and the Jaws is a great way to squirrel away these cameras to get supplemental footage for our main cameras at events, for instance.

                  I was a little disappointed however with the new Jaws, because it was one segment shorter than my first one. I guess it's a case of the candy bar, the half gallon of ice cream, and the container of coffee that shrank in size without a price reduction.

                  However, it's not a show-stopper, and I'm glad to have a second one.

                  This is a great clamp that allows attachment to a wide variety of surfaces. The gooseneck is a little stiff but still flexible. The clamp seems like it will grab onto anything.

                    Comments about GoPro Jaws: Flex Clamp:

                    I have used a Jaws Clamp Mount for about a year and find it to be extremely handy. I also have several C-Clamp type mounts, but where I can use it, the Jaws Clamp Mount is so much easier to mount and adjust. Thus, I bought a second one.

                    I use it not only with my GoPro, but also small handi-cam type cameras that we squirrel away here-and-there at events, etc.

                    I was surprised to find that the goose-neck on the new one is shorter than the older one. I guess it's a case of the "shrinking candy bar, half-gallon of ice cream, and pound of coffee." Same or higher price, less product.

                    Still, it's a good product, and maybe the shorter length will actually prove to be an advantage, not just a manufacturing cost reducer.

                        This is a great mount. The clamp is very sturdy. The arm didn't provide the most flexibility range but it goes at least 75 degrees from the clamp. Also the fact that there is a mount on the arm and the clamp provides even more possiblies
