Photography often involves improvising and adapting to your setting–including securing your flashes and accessories to whatever odd but available surface is at hand. This DIY SuperClamp offers a cheap but strong grip for securing your gear.
SuperClamps, a commercial product designed to secure photography equipment, are great but they’re small.

This DIY guide, by photography Allen Mowery, shows you how to turn a cheap $8 ratcheting hand clamp into a massively strong and sturdy equipment clamp–a DIY SuperClamp designed to hold onto thicker objects and carry a heavier load.
