Fine for many types of use.. – Universal Clamp Mount for Tripods (Holds up to 3.8cm Thick Objects) Reviews

Pros:
It does what it is supposed to do, I use it for my laser, and also to hold a flashlight when I work in tight spaces. I have also used it when trying out wireless range with an antenna clasped in it.
I have bolted one to my bike, and it makes an excellent flashlight holder..
I have also used this as a microphone holder.
Cons:
As others say, a bit thin plastic, it could also have some kind of rubberised grip. The spring is strong enough, but could not have been much weaker.
Other:
The part which has the threads for the tripod has an insert which may become unnscrewed after a while. It then reveals wider threads, so i suspect that this item was originally designed as a microphone holder and the insert was made to make it usable on a tripod.
Bottomline:
Does its job, a bit thin plastic.
