Althought this is not a laser, it's a VERY usefull gadget for laser holding for taking photos, burning things, etc etc etc... It's construction is far better from what I expected. The whole set is just 4.20$. I'll just copy what DX says about it because it's all pure truth. I've got to say this is the best quality item I've ever got from dealextreme.

The only con I've found so far is that the small balls that are at the bottom ofthe legs are not well glued and one of them fell apart. I just took out all of them and glued them properly. Remember they are really needed for the tripod to be stable so you are better doing this once you got it.

The clamp holds 1.5 inch diameter objects,so I think it can even hold the big lasers. I've tested the weight it canhold and I would say even more than 1lb.

- Metal steel construction
- Flexible/Bendable legs to reach 4" in height (4.5" maximum)
- Supports 1lb+ weight (when weight is balanced)
- Suitable for telescopes and small digital cameras
- Only 1.80oz to carry
- Solid construction at an unbeatable price

Just buy it, I've ordered 2 sets more for the other lasers I own.

Yours,
Albert

I've got 6 sets myself, but I opted for the tripod with the expandable legs. They give you a wider base, thus are able to support heavier, longer items. The cost difference is negligible.......................rob.

These are the ones I use (they're a little shorter but the spring clips hold lasers of all sizes nicely and they're solid as hell)

If you watch this companies auctions they occasionally offer 3 lots of these for like $17.99 shipped, which makes them a lot better deal...

It SHOULD BE. All SMALL tripods & many large ones use the SAME SIZE threaded coupler on top of the tripod, which fits this clamp. As I said in my earlier post, I have 6, & they fit EVERY tripod I have, even my 6 footer !!!!!! rob

It's a microphone clamp, so must be compatible with any (or at least most part) of the microphone stands / tripod threads.

If you need bigger ones, you have to search in studio clamps, or stage clamps, the ones used for lamps and backgrounds holding in photographic studios and film set ..... lots of big clamps, in this field ..... just as example (but there's a lot of place for search also more cheaper ones :)) http://www.calumetphoto.com/1/3/studio-clamps
