    I have a Musician's Friend Truss system. Now this is probably the least expensive truss system that was available at the time, but tt works fine and, although I've had to make a few repairs, I have it working as steadily as possible. The one problem that I've had is that the tubes on the truss are 1 3/8" and I can't find an O-Clamp that will fit that.

    I had bought a couple lights from someone that had these on them already and liked the way that they worked. So my new objective was to match those so everything would be consistent. These Chauvet CH03 Standard C-Clamps looked like a match, so I ordered a bunch. And a perfect match they are!

    I have mounted all of my fixtures with these, including my old-school Double Derby and Line Dancer lights; I don't think that there is anything that they can't handle. The only fixtures that I'm using more than one on are my Haze Machine (just for safety sake and stability) and my 4-head laser unit (again, just for stability because it is a light-weight unit but fairly wide).

    I am extremely happy with these and plan to order some more.

    This thing does the job and is affordable. Good qualities is that the metal is steel and will not very likely fracture. Negative qualities are that the stamped steel C is not thick enough where the threads are, so there is some wobble in the screw, which can cause some wobble on a round pole when clamped tight. The screw end is also not formed well enough to prevent scratches in the paint pole, so if it is black-painted steel it will quickly become chewed up looking after a few on/remove cycles.
    I've also had trouble with the proximity of the screw clamp and the fixture's screw, on some fixtures they are too close for one to be able to tighten the screws easily without tools.
    These are OK, but you must be sure to get them real, real tight or some shaking could losen the clamp. They do tend to twist a bit around a round pole, so if you need a tight, absolute fixed position, I suggest getting the wrap-around round clamps that seem to grip better and not twist, they also don't destroy black paint finish on the poles.

        They may not be "Heavy Duty", but, they certainly do the job and do it well. All for a great price.

          I am a film and Theater Director, not a music person. This product is great for the price.

          Thumb screw is a real plus for quick set up with light weight cans.

          These things are wicked cheap and they do scratch the heck out of your poles and trusses. But if you don't care about that stuff, they work well.

          light clamp

          Comments about Chauvet CH03 Standard C-Clamp:

          this clamp is only effective on the larger, round T-bars, or other similar sized tubing. I have a very small light bar (think the LED lights), and the screw/knob isn't long enough to reach and secure a light to the small light bar. I'll have to figure something else out.
          simple light clamp
          seems well built
          good to have in the set up tool box

          Great Clamp, Great price!

          By Jon Carpenter

          from Baltimore, MD

          Comments about Chauvet CH03 Standard C-Clamp:

          The only clamp I like better is the 0 clamp, but they don't always fit in random places like speaker poles or edges of tables, or handles on top of speakers, or the piping holding up basketball nets... I put lights everywhere.
          Simple easy to use.
          I only use LED and Laser lighting, nothing big bulky or heavy... If you screw them too tight you will put a dent in cheap black tree stands. Put a piece of rubber or gaffer tape or something inbetween if you dont want to mark up trussing. I just respray paint the trussing doesn't bother me...
          I bought a few extra's just to have in case...
