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.

It's a clamp....

By PyroBoy

from Wisconsin

Comments about CHAUVET DJ CLP-03 Adjustable Steel C-Clamp for DJ/Lighting Use:

It's not super high quality, but it should hold most of your DJ lights up no problem. Sometimes the screw gets in the way of the light but that can be fixed just by replacing it with a shorter one from your hardware store. If you need something faster and a little more secure I recommend an "O" clamp but if you're just looking for something to keep your lights on a truss this will be perfect.

Get your clamp on

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about CHAUVET DJ CLP-03 Adjustable Steel C-Clamp for DJ/Lighting Use:

My review concurs completely with the previous reviewer. For the money, this is great little clamp as long as you don't over-work it.For mounting lightweight fixtures (up to maybe 5 lbs.) to horizontal trusses/tubing, you shouldn't have any problems. I did have one of these clamps deform slightly when I mounted a heavier fixture onto the verticle pole of a speaker stand.One thing I notced and appreciated is that Chauvet still uses high-quality cast wing-nuts for attaching the fixtures and not the cheap stamped wing-nuts that becomming common.

      Comments about CHAUVET DJ CLP-03 Adjustable Steel C-Clamp for DJ/Lighting Use:

      We thought we could save some money on cheap clamps to hang dmx dimmer packs. Clamps come with a small metric light mount bolt and a big plastic truss mount bolt. Big bolt wouldn't tighten because plastic handle was up against equipment. Metric replacement bolts were not available from our local hardware store. We drilled out the light mount holes to 25/64". Installed 3/8" x 4" bolts. Had to tap these in with a hammer. We couldn't get fully threaded bolts at our local hardware, so we had to cut tubing for the bolts so they would tighten. All said...we spent more modifying the clamps than we spent on them originally. Savings? Zero!

        Great for a lightweight clamp, yes it will scratch any surface you clamp it to. If you want a scratch free clamp then spend the extra money and get one. For hanging light weight fixtures it is perfect. I think it is priced just right for what you get. Easy way to fix the loose screw issue is to back it up on the inside with a nut, addtional cost .03, shouldn't have to do that but then its not a 15-25.00 clamp is it.

                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...
