Excellent design! Fast and easy to use. accepts every rod I have from vintage (small) to larger modern rods.

I do wish it had a replaceable nylon sleeve for the cymbal hole like a cymbal stand, but none of my other clutches do either.

I have used mine over a year, gigging several weekends a month with some higher sound level bands (Rock etc... but not Industrial Screamo or anything) and haven't had a single "quality issue" or failure with the product.

Warning: you'll want all of your cymbals to be this easy.($$$)

Also: you might want to experiment with the rod clamp tightness before gigging with it. Mine slipped a few times till I got it right for my foot pressure level.

I'm buying a 2nd and maybe a 3rd one for all my hi hat stands .... I'm spoiled now

I've grown to trust Gibraltar for its sturdiness. I really like the idea of this product. My bottom nut was constantly loosening and dropping off during performances. This seemed like the perfect solution... and for the past year, it has been. I work constantly and need dependable equipment. This past Saturday, this clutch failed. The top retaining bolt and wing nut were suddenly stripped and the top cymbal could not be set. Fortunately I carried my old clutch, so I did get through the show. Gibraltar needs to change the top wing nut from the two-piece bolt and nut, to a more simple wing nut system, where the nut applies pressure directly to the rod (like every other clutch in the world!) I would buy another, but I can't have equipment that I can not rely on. Poorly made for professional users.

    Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

    It may not seem like much, but anywhere I can save time setting up or tearing down is always helpful. If you are playing venues that have several bands and your time is limited, a few minutes here or there can make all the difference in the world.

    Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

    Well it's about time this was made! for many years I thought this could be done and here it is! Very well made, easy to use and solid. I replaced my Tama clutch with this one and played a 2 hour gig. No slippage, it worked perfectly. There are 2 things to keep in mind. This clutch is heavier than a standard clutch, you may have to tighten your hat spring. The clutch is also taller than a standard clutch. Not by much, but if you cut your rod down really low it may be an issue. I would reccomend this product in a heartbeat.

      Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

      Purchased this to replace a clutch on my D2 practice kit that would loosen up three or four times during a 2-hour rehearsal. This clutch was easy to install. I haven't had any problems. We'll see about longevity, but, thus far, it seems durable and doesn't loosen at all. A cheap solution to an annoying problem.

            Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

            This is by far the best clutch I've ever used and I believe it's the best quick release version on the market. I recently misplaced mine and had to buy another and this updated version is even better than the original. I've attached a picture to show the main difference which is a lack of threads where the top hi-hat sits. This along with the way it attaches to the rod to prevent marring makes it a winner in my book.

                Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

                This clutch has a few things going for it that make it a step up from the others... First off, the quick release is handy, esp. if you change hats a lot. Also, because it's a quick release, the bottom 'nut' is always in the same exact position when on. That means you have a stable, consistent base for the top hat. One of the best features: the part of the shaft where the cymbal rests is NOT threaded, unlike 99% of the other clutches. No threads = no chewed up hats, I put a piece of surgical tape around the post for a little added protection, but the lack of threads is super. Lastly, I like the loop-style clamping system- it's secure and doesn't mar the post. A definite must have!

                  Comments about Gibraltar Quick Release Hi-Hat Clutch:

                  A hi-hat clutch is something you don't think about until you have a problem with it. I have had several occasions where the clutch would rotate loose during a show, so this quick release mechanism solved that. It's easy to use and inexpensive, so it's worth checking out even if you don't necessarily have a problem with your current clutch.

                    Used this last practice n the studio and it makes setup and tear down of the hihat for fast and easy. Was solid and did not loosen a bit. Will use it during our next gig for sure.
