I've had one on my heavy 7d rig (heavy lens and matte box mounted on lens for over a year with mid-heavy usage and it's been great. Maybe the other reviewer got a bad unit?
This clamp starts out slightly loose, and rapidly gets worse. One must continually tighten the screw on the release arm, to get any stability at all. This screw soon strips out, and the release falls apart. This release will not securely hold your camera. Buy something else.
