Questions & Answers
Can this be used on pipes up to the largest size?
Using a 1 as a clamp, I've focused on I can fit a 5" pipe with no issue, but anything bigger is pushing it to its limits. I think it was created for a 1 rather than a 2. The pipe is 25 inches in diameter.
Can this clamp be used on the smallest pipe size?
Pipes with a minimum diameter of 15mm can be clamped.
Is this only intended to be used with 1/4 x 20 bolts or will it also accept 3/8 x 16 ?
There is no difference between the two. There is a 1/4" x 20 bolt attachment point on one "arm" of the clamp which is attached to the double ball adapter, and a 3/8" x 16 bolt attachment point on the other "arm". The threaded rod is 3/8" x 16 x 12" and I used it on the open pre-drilled holes at Home Depot It has a hole drilled through it. This worked very well. I will upload pictures to prove it.
Can you tell me how well this grips flat surfaces, like tables? Thanks a lot! ?
As long as you use a tripod or light stand it will work just as well

A good start, but is in need of a redesign
For me, the main purpose of this clamp was to attach camera to a vehicle. Handle for the grab bar on the column. I feel that the clamp is a decent product overall, but it has several limitations that left me feeling I feel that this clamp was overly engineered in some areas and completely overlooked in It might seem as if the jaws of the clamp are robust because of the heavy metal, but it contains a thin rubber pad. the rubber pad keeps me from scratching other surfaces, I think that it is too thin to be used on a daily basis or for long term use. Comparatively speaking, the handle / screw system used to tighten the jaws seems weak compared with the heavy duty materials used for the jaws. The handle makes you feel as if you may break the bolt if you tighten it too much. The positive side to that is that I haven't yet broken my handle. Let's move on to the next section and here I have my real issues. For the sake of this review, I will call this section "the barbell" since it looks like an old time barbell that they used to use in strong man contests. In this design, things seem to be able to be swiveled into position and in the direction you need them to be. Despite this, if you look closely at the listings pictures, you will notice the bar bell is split length-wise.
What this means is the angle can only be adjusted whether it is up or down/left or The second side of the barbell must be adjusted by using that angle as well. Although this may not seem like a big deal, once the first side is adjusted the second side of the barbell must be adjusted using that angle. Another disadvantage is that the compression nut for the barbell is located at the center of the barbell, which means that when you loosen one side, it will loosen both ends. A negative response is needed. In my opinion, a compression nut at each end would be preferable to a single point in the middle. It is a good idea to put a tiny bit of Loctite on the post that goes into your camera or light's base so that it doesn't spin Since the male and female threads do not align, vibrations can make your equipment loosen and potentially fall off the mount if the male and female threads do not mate very tightly. Generally, the camp is not that bad, but it needs a bit of I definitely would like to see a real swivel point at each end of the barbell so the bar can be adjusted much more freely. As well, tighten up the tolerances between the male and female mating points so the connection can be made more securely. This is a good option if you are looking for an indoor mounting option for an external camera flash or something of the sort. Perhaps the design will not pose any problems for you. It is my hope that this review will help you and enable you to look deeper into.

An excellent little multi-purpose device The clamp mount functions as a functional clamp
Mounting a Zoom H4N pro has been achieved by using the double ball adapter and the 1/4" x 20 threaded screws. There was a predominance of a pre-existing scar on the other side of the jaw The holes have been drilled and prepped A tapped screw with a diameter of 3/8" and a length of 16" is used. My next stop was Home Depot, where I checked if they had threaded rods in this size. They had a 12 inch threaded rod in 3/8" x 16 size, so I tried it out on the clamp hole and it threaded just fine. Using the threaded rod in the second hole on the other clamp arm, I mount the shock mount on the other clamp arm for the NTG4+ microphone and Several components of the Zoom system are mounted to the clamp that is attached to a standard tripod, including the Zoom H4N Pro, double ball adapter, threaded rod, shock mount, NTG4+, and the deadcat. Photos of the setup can be found below. The best I've ever seen.

It would be hard to find a better deal at this price. Accessories with a low price point are frequently used by me. They often cut corners or go light in critical areas even if they have the same shape. SOLID - Nothing is flimsy or flimsy with this clamp As sturdy as a baby RAM mount, it truly does feel like one. My only concern is that the bottom pin that secures the arm to the clamp comes unscrewed easily when the arm is secured, which is why I gave it four stars instead of five. Having a camera mounted to it and everything locked up, if you bump the camera or twist it the whole arm assembly spins because it has come A bit of loctite will solve this problem, but you will have to deal with this problem on an otherwise excellent.

I got this to mount a second action camera onto the crash bars of my Adventure motorcycle, for a different perspective. It works fairly well, but the ball ends are polished and tend to slip when the wind pressure pushes against it. They would not hold no matter how tight you tightened them. When working in a static environment, they work well. Eventually, I moved the mount to a place behind my windscreen and it never moved again. As long as the camera was not in the wind, the vibration of traveling 1000 miles of so did not move it.

Depending on the position, it may not stay locked
The video files I need for a project I'm working on are really essential. I thought this would be a great product, but I'm very disappointed by the way the mechanism works and the stellar reviews. These are similar to other gadgets I have been using that use the ball and joint locking mechanism, so I thought they would be strong enough to hold Here's what I'm going to say. The clamps are very sturdy and strong, but even when I tighten the ball joints to my limits, the phone cradle will not stand up in certain angles, even with tremendous force applied. There is just a slow drooping of the limb. These are only the pairs I ordered, so I obviously had bad luck if these are the only pairs I ordered. I was deeply disappointed when I had high expectations.

One's imagination is the only restriction on how one can use this clamp
I use a 4-inch walking stick because I have balance issues due to a back injury I sustained decades ago Wheel walker out in the fresh air. My walker can be used as a dolly such as this clamp. The articulated screen on my DSLR allows me to take sharp pictures without having to hold the camera up to my face - it is 45 to 90 degrees at an angle. People with impaired balance can easily relate to what I am saying. As for moving the camera, it can be moved virtually anywhere with smooth floor or path surfaces. As a result, I am eager to give it a try as a steady-state A video camera is referred to as a "cam". What is time-lapse? Is there really a reason not to? It is an ideal solution for anyone and everyone who wants to enjoy photography with more flexibility and mobility without dealing with the inconveniences You are only limited by your imagination in where you can use it. Keep in mind, however, that you need to use common sense A larger camera or cameras with light bars, sliders, etc. cannot be clamped with this clamp.
