Sturdy and useful
Very helpful item. Turns any surface (ledge, door, shelf, pipe, etc.) into an improvised tripod or light stand. Sturdy item but too heavy for me to carry in my camera bag. Would like to have this item but lighter weight.

Great value with a familiar design. The dual threaded stud is much more versatile for light and medium tasks. Little things make it disappointing: The screw and its spring tensioner for the stud interferes with storing the flat-jaw block. The flat-jaw block falls out of positioning holes and is hard plastic rather than slightly softer jaw padding; this little guy will get lost unless taped. Some threaded holes were not straight.

Great value with a familiar design. The dual threaded stud is much more versatile for light and medium tasks. Little things make it disappointing: The screw and its spring tensioner for the stud interferes with storing the flat-jaw block. The flat-jaw block falls out of positioning holes and is hard plastic rather than slightly softer jaw padding; this little guy will get lost unless taped. Some threaded holes were not straight. The main handle was the old style single-handle type, not the more compact two-lug seen in the photo. Clamp came with some sort of soft rubber half pipe rubber block and some screws. I can't figure out the purpose of the big rubber block or why you would want to screw it into the back of the clamp. Or is it to clamp to the end of a pipe - very odd. The other screws might have been for the flat-jaw insert. but why would someone want to permanently configure the clamp one way or the other. The beauty of this clamp is it's versatility and adaptability. The black coating covered some of the threaded holes -- poor finish.

I ordered 3. Two or them went broken in the first use. The handle is really weak and is not like the one in the image. The best of this clamps is the possibility you have to buy none of them. Do that , spend more bucks and buy better gear. I did not send it back for a replacement because I'm in chile, to expensive to return them. I'been photographer for near 23 years and also own a photo rental so I know what I`m saying
I ordered 10 of these to sell to my customers. I have sold 2 and they both broke within a few days. The handle is not like in the photo. It breaks and the clamp cannot be tightened. On top of that, I get this email from Adorama asking me to write this review in violation of my stated preferences to NOT receive junk email from them. But when a company like Adorama is driven by greed they neglect to respect their customers.
I bought two of these. They both broke on the very first use. The plastic knob striped on one and completely broke off on the other. I had to leave them both on location until I could get pliers to remove them. The knobs are very low grade plastic.
Adorama is no longer supporting the brass 1/4x20 at each end of the standoff as pictured. They have substituted a single ended 1/4x20 chrome standoff that fits in the clamp and rotates in 60 degree increments rather than the infinite intervals of the pictured round brass standoff.
These clamps are ideal for mounting DJ effect lighting onto the vertical pole of a light stand (T-bar stand). I am able to mount up to four additional lights per stand.
Adorama had the part I needed at an affordable price. Customer service was great and suggested just the right part so I didn't have to continue searching online.
I use this to mount cameras on high speed offroad vehicles. Mounting is solid solid solid. Never comes loose, never fails. I have been using just two clamps steady for years. I also use this clamp with a Bogen Magic Arm.
Broke first time using it. I tried to save money, and I learned my lesson.
