Does the job. Clamp works fine. See my pictures.

I received the Fotodiox Telescoping Reflector Holding Arm today. Free shipping because I chose the Super Saver Shipping thingie (ordered on 10/25 and it was here on 11/1 via UPS). Anyhow, it's a decent product and well made. I know some have complained about it not holding the arm, or not being able to mount on a light stand. Sorry to hear that. I didn't encounter that problem at all - likely because I've used these types of clamps/arms before in another life :-) Anyhow, I uploaded some photos of the methods I used to secure the clamp and the arm. They probably tell the story better than I (even though the pics are pretty poor quality). Also, I'm using the telescoping arm, light stand, and "Steady Bag" (you can use any type of sandbag) as a microphone boom. It works! And that's what I had in mind when I ordered it. Great price for a poor man's mic boom.
