This is a great product.
It is made out of high-quality strong impregnated plastic and the clamp part is metal with rubber covers where it actually clamps on. This can clamp anything from a glass car door window to wooden or metal fence post or slat. The clamp part comes off so you can use just the top portion screwed onto any 1/4 x20 stud ore even a small tri/bi-pod.
I've used this on both my bicycle and motorcycle. It clamps securely to a frame member, handlebar and even a brake master cylinder reservoir. It seems pretty darn solid and I've never had an issue with it falling off. Still, I loop the camera strap through a mini carabiner as a back-up. That's why cameras have a strap in the first place -as a back-up.
The top portion is very adjustable and the two ball-joints give almost infinite adjustability. Once the setting thumb screw is tightened down it is SOLID.
I've heard a few complaints that the screw is easily stripped. Come on folks, you don't need to tighten this thing down like a GORILLA. People tend to seriously over-tighten fasteners of all types. This is made out of a strong high-impact plastic but it is still plastic. It tightens down very securely but if you bear down on it like a GORILLA you are going to strip it. You can strip any fastener -even a metal one by over-tightening. It's only a 1/4 x 20 screw in there that is molded to a plastic thumb handle. If you strip this out then you are OVER-TIGHTENING it folks.
The fact that it comes apart makes it not only more handy with more options to work with other gear but it fits into a smaller bag when it is in 2 parts. This is how I carry mine. The thumb wheels make it fast and easy to put back together or adjust.
I can't say enough good things about this product.
None, unless you are an oafish GORILLA who over-tightens things to the point that they break. 300 ft-lbs will strip just about anything out.
