I prefer these over the cheaper steel C-clamps. These are strong, light, and don't mar the black finish on painted poles. The O has a rubber inside to protect the paint and it seems to improve the "tightness" of the clamping action.
At first, I was concerned that when I was twisting down the T-handle screw, it was 'chewing' into the plastic a bit and deforming it. It appeared that continued tightening would pull the screw clear through the plastic part, but after a bit it seems to stiffen and hold very tight. Just keep an eye on these and don't tighten it so far that the screw rips through the plastic part, and you should be fine.
I found that these are much better at holding a fixed position than the steel C-clamps, but you have to get the right size for your pole for it to work.
Be aware though, that the wing nut that attaches to your fixture's bracket will never be absolutely tight. You can tighten it until your fingers bleed and you will still be able to rotate it a bit, because any single bolt will still slip a bit (which can make it easier to align the fixture after it has been tightened).

Nowhere in the description does it say there's a weight limit, until you get the box and it says "ideal for lights under 25 lbs". My ADJ moving heads are at least 26 lbs. Also, even the my inno spots are made by American DJ, the wing nut on this o-clamp is too wide and I had to grind it down to fit. Not happy

American DJ 1.5" Clamp

Comments about American DJ Lighting Fixture 1.5" O-Clamp:

Works fairly well. Some of them are slightly larger and won't grip the truss tubing unless you put tape around it. I assume this is an issue with the mold because some of them work fine and some are loose. It's not a huge deal. Just keep some gaffes tape handy.

    Comments about American DJ Lighting Fixture 1.5" O-Clamp:

    These clamps are very nice, I didn't realize it, but my tubing is 1 1/4", but I glued a thin piece of neoprene to the inner area that contacts the tube, and you CAN NOT budge them (that's a good thing!). No marring of the light bar whatsoever! I highly recommend them for any light fixture, big or small.

        Comments about American DJ Lighting Fixture 1.5" O-Clamp:

        I have a few of these and use them all the time. They come in different sizes so make sure to get the right ones. Handy for trusses and to hang lights from speaker poles too. I have also used them to hang par cans from light T bars where the drilled holes do not match - these allow me to place the lights wherever I want on the bar. They are well made- I have never had a failure. Because the bolt is in a plastic housing, I would suggest not to place a sideways force on these- other than that - great value and excellent solution !

          Comments about American DJ Lighting Fixture 1.5" O-Clamp:

          We use these clamps for the 20+ lighting fixtures that we have for our mobile DJ business. The clamps work very well. My only complaint is that the newer version has a loose washer on the screw that latches the clamp together and you have to always press the washer out of the way when closing the clamp. When you have a bulky light to hang, that can be annoying. Still I know they started using the washer most likely to protect the rest of the plastic where the bolt latches. These are great clamps and I highly recommend them!
