C40 Arca-Swiss Compatible Quick Release Clamp with 1-4" Hardened Thread Insert

SKU: C40
For sale is 40mm wide Arca-Swiss compatible quick release clamp, as seen in pictures.

Hard black anodized surface coating with matte non reflective, and wear resistant finish.

1/4"-20  cut in steel, nickel-chrome plated insert ensures that thread will remain in good condition almost indefinitely, as opposed to all other designs that have threads cut directly in the aluminum body of the clamp, rending it useless once the threads wear out in the aluminum.  It also allows you to upgrade to a different thread if you happen to change your tripod (inserts are available directly from us in all sizes), no need to buy a new clamp.

Features self retaining, nickel-chrome plated knob for added durability and looks

100% made, designed and assembled in the USA

C-40 Arca converting from Manfrotto

Super Smart.
C-40 Arca fit perfectly into my manfrotto travelling tripod.
So robust, secures camera to tripod head without chance of popping out any more.
Thank you,

C40 Arca-Swiss clamp

It works and is well made. The only problem is the $9 for the Manfrotto anti rotation inserts - very expensive for what really are

The stock photo doesn't convey how heavy-duty this clamp is all around, including even the threaded insert. The build quality is really first-rate. I was debating whether I needed the C60 and its additional length, but that would have been overkill for me, as the C40 has more than enough holding power and is a good length, and the really robust 1/4-20 threaded insert is plenty strong enough. Also, the adjustment range of the moveable jaw is quite broad, so this clamp should fit just about any Arca-Swiss-type plate. With the current pricing on this clamp of just $30, it's a tremendous bargain, and I've already purchased a second one. If you need an Arca-Swiss clamp, this is absolutely the one to get!

Don’t Let the size fool you.

Same PMG quality in a smaller size. Works well with a table top tripod like the Feisol TT-15 and the ball head of your choice. I just didn’t like the clamps that come with heads made for such a compact tripod.

It was very easy to rebuild my Manfrotto Befree Advanced tripod with this clamp. It matches the tripod perfectly. Both with regards to function and looks. It is of high build quality and finish.
