4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, not as firm as it could be
Quite nicely built out of solid plastic with decent quality components. The design seems to be generally pretty good, and I haven't had a problem with it firmly gripping onto any size tube (handlebars, mic stands, tripods).

The only negative is that whilst the tilt can be locked, the rotation can't. This clicks with a firm resistance as it turns but there's...

1.0 out of 5 stars Should never go onto a motorcycle or moving vehicle!
The biggest problem I have is using it on the bike. The top of the unit can be rotated and sits on a rubber mount. This can't be locked in place like the rest of the head. As a result it adds far too much wobble to the head as its free to vibrate. Also the pivot arm is held in with a pushed in pin and luckily I've seen this working loose, before the clamp came...

This review is from: Grifiti Nootle Quick Release Pipe Clamp with 1/4 20 Threaded Head for Cameras and Nootle Ipad Mounts Works for Tripods, Music Stands, Microphone Stands, Any Pipe or Bar That Is up to 1.5 Inches in Diameter Also Motorcycles, Bikes, and More (Camera)
Quite nicely built out of solid plastic with decent quality components. The design seems to be generally pretty good, and I haven't had a problem with it firmly gripping onto any size tube (handlebars, mic stands, tripods).

The only negative is that whilst the tilt can be locked, the rotation can't. This clicks with a firm resistance as it turns but there's enough play when it's in place for the head to feel a little loose. If you need to hold a device firmly in place then you'll probably want to take it apart to add some washers and/or remove the spring so that the head locks firmly in place. You'll lose the easy rotation but it'll still be adjustable with a screwdriver and it becomes much more solid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping everything on hold, 29 Jun. 2014

This review is from: Grifiti Nootle Quick Release Pipe Clamp with 1/4 20 Threaded Head for Cameras and Nootle Ipad Mounts Works for Tripods, Music Stands, Microphone Stands, Any Pipe or Bar That Is up to 1.5 Inches in Diameter Also Motorcycles, Bikes, and More (Camera)
I needed an attachment with a standard camera screw fitting that would connect my rain gauge to a pole outside in the garden. The Graffiti device has served me well. The moulded parts are strong and cleanly cast while the adjustments are of stainless steel and ideal for combatting in the weather. The rain gauge is now installed in view from the house and the rubber insets of the cast halves ensures a strong and secure grip to the metal pole that has been hammered in to the ground. The adjustable camera thread end ensures that whatever is connected can be held at almost any angle. There is a sprung link to the main body that can be adjusted with the retaining screw. For my purposes, I needed that as tight as possible, but if relaxed, there is a little give that may be helpful in some circumstances.
Overall, a well thought out piece of kit that can be applied to a variety of purposes.

TL:DR Great for static use. Should never go onto a motorcycle!

It's not bad but it is plastic and not very robust compared to other recent value for money purchases. Handy to have in the kit but probably won't last very long. It didn't cost much though!

I bought this to hold the video baby monitor we use in our little one's bedroom. We wanted something that would attach to the side of the cot, but would be small enough so not to ruin all of the decoration we did in advance of her moving into her room.

The clamp came ready to go and instructions, although included, were not needed as it is a very simple design.

I am sure that this would be extremely useful for outdoor sports people, especially cyclists, however, we have used it for a slightly different purpose. It's so good, I am going to buy one for my brother, who is currently at hospital, with his wife, waiting for his first child to be born!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for off camera flash, 11 Mar. 2015

I use it to hold a flash either on pipes or light stands and the screw head doesn't fell too strong. It works perfectly fine and would certainly recommend it to others but I wouldn't trust my favourite camera on it.

It's not really tough enough for the job I intended which was to hold a high capacity Sony battery and SDI converter box on a tripod. It'll find many other uses for holding microphones and small camcorders.

Nice strong pipe clamp, I use it to hold a Tascam recording machine which is quite heavy on to the Mic stand, it holds it firmlyu in place.
