I’ve used many clamps with a variety of swing-arm lamps over the years and this one is the best clamp i’ve ever used. It may be a bit pricey compared to other clamps, but this one is built tough. I’m confident mine will last the rest of my life. No matter the condition of the current clamps. I’d give this tough, dependable clamp 6 stars.
The original that came with the lamp was made out of plastic and after a few years it broke off. This adapter is made out of metal and it is sturdy. It is less bulky and classier looking in a much lesser profile on my desk.
I purchased a swing arm lamp and didn’t realize that i needed a clamp. So i searched for one and came across this clamp from hope hill products and i purchased from this company in the past and was very pleased with them. Needless to say this clamp worked perfectly and was worth the purchase.

, Perfect replacement clamp for swing arm lamp
I love the convenience of my swing arm lamp, but have struggled to keep it firmly anchored to my desk. The deluxe replacement clamp works like a charm – no more wobbly lamp, no more problems with the lamp falling out of the clamp, or the clamp falling off the desk edge. This clamp simply works as advertised.
Very good quality, solidly built, can tighten clamp very securely, very much unlike the flimsy clamp this deluxe clamp is replacing. I recommend this clamp and would not hesitate to purchase again.
Needed this in the worst way. Now i don’t have to hold my lamp in one hand and use the other for working on projects.
I wanted a bracket that wasn’t plastic and gonna break in a year. This thing is perfect, rock solid.
I often use a costco folding table as my desk. Big problem with all the standard desk clamps is they can’t fit a desk this thick. My desk is 2 1/8′ thick, and none of the standard desk clamps can accommodate it. That’s all it needed to do – and it does it (and can even go thicker). It also seems to be well made. (and for all you mic boom manufacturers. Get your act together and include this as standard equipment.
The plastic base that came with my swing arm magnifying lamp (purchased over 20 years ago) had broken. Since the lamp itself was still functioning fine, i wanted a replacement clamp that would fit on my desk, be less bulky than the original, and be way more durable. This clamp us made of metal, had the requisite 1/2′ hole to hold the lamp along with a tightening screw to ensure the lamp does not slip out of the hole. It is all one piece as opposed to the original two pieces. A purchase well worth the cost.
It’s a great replace piece for my lamp. I wish the metal part had a plastic cover, so a wouldn’t scratch the under side of my desk.
Simple, solid, and functional. This is a very welcome upgrade to the flimsy plastic clamps that typically come with drawing table lamps.
I just purchased a swing arm magnifier lamp. The base clamp was plastic and when the lamp swung out over the table, the clamp would disconnect from the table and the light would crash to the ground. This clamp is very sturdy and does not come loose.
I’ve been looking for a long time for a strong metal clamp for my lamp, that didn’t look like it belonged in a workshop. I’m very impressed with this clamp; it is all one piece of metal, and looks sharp on my desk. And best of all, my very heavy architect lamp is absolutely secure and i no longer have to worry that i’ll walk in to my office and find my lamp on the floor. Thank you for a quality product.
Excellent quality product and packaging. Replacement for fly tying lamp table-clamp and works perfectly. Even arrived ahead of schedule.
Used this to replace a heavy cast-iron base for a tolomeo desk lamp. Now, this clamps onto my desk and minimizes clutter and weight.
The ones that come with the microphone boom arms are pieces of junk. Both my utubeing & gaming sons destroyed them in the first week. These strong replacements have been in service now 6 months.
The design of this product is really great. I’ve purchased other replacement clamps (at a cheaper price) and they ended up breaking to of point of non-repair. This product; however, has a solid design and is of one piece construction and i expect it to be durable as anything on the market or better.
It does what it’s supposed to do. I am using it to support a boom with a fairly heavy condenser mic and it doesn’t sag. It needs less overhang than my previous clamp and has a toggle on the screw arm to get closer to a table leg or whatever. It could be a couple bucks cheaper, but i’m happy with it nonetheless.
Just got this to replace the broken plastic piece of junk supplied with the swing arm lamp that i have. This thing is probably more expensive than it needs to be, but it is very good quality. Since i just got it, i assume at this point that it will last for a long time given the build quality and strength. I would definitely recommend it and i would buy it again if i needed another one.
Cannot swing lamp due to adjustable base – it locks lamp in position so as to provide support to lamp. You can unscrew & move just not swing back & forth.
My lamp has a 3/8′ stud, maybe that’s an oddity, but this clamp will work. If the manufacturer reads this, may i make a suggestion?. Can you supply a plastic sleeve with this clamp that will reduce the opening from 1/2′ to 3/8′ for those who might have such a lamp?.
Good so far i bought a second one in july (first one in april). This is a good solution to the plastic clamp that always breaks on these type of lamps.
This isn’t plastic, it doesn’t break and it doesn’t fall off the desk. Why doesn’t every lamp ship with this in the first place?.
Saved old lamp that had cheap connector that came with equally cheap base.
