- The C-clamp is one of your most versatile clamps…and what's nice about it is…you can clamp this to odd different shapes.…Almost any shape, almost a pipe or a piece of wood.…That's the real beauty of a C-clamp.…Now you might be thinking…I can get a C-clamp at a hardware store.…Well, the difference between this C-clamp…and the one you would get at a hardware store…is the ability to mount a light on this pin…or to mount another clamp,…say, your grip clamp onto the back.…And once you have that hooked up,…you can now hang a flag, an arm,…you really have a lot of flexibility.…
So the beauty is, you can hook this…to a variety of odd shapes…and it's going to hold tight,…and you have the flexibility now to mount a variety…of modifiers or lights directly off the back.…
