Does anyone have a link to pre-built steel pin safety cables for the Bogen Super clamp?

Those Impact SC-1815 are really skinny. B&H's specs list them as having a 22# load capacity, but one of the reviews on their site mentions that the carabiner seems flimsy.

Remember that if something is falling, it will have much more force than just its resting weight.

For less than another dollar, I'd consider this one with a 60# rating, 24" long...

No problemo, man. That's what this message board is all about, IMHO. The more info we share, the better the tapes we ALL make and easier, and more safely...

Any recommendations for a relatively lightweight and inexpensive camera clamp for wide railings, such as those found in football stands?  The ubiquitous SuperClamp definitely works, but I'm already using two of those for my split omnis when I'm recording marching bands.  While I could easily add a third for my camera in the middle (really just my phone with a tripod adapter), another one of those seems like overkill to just support a cell phone.  Thoughts?

How wide do you need the jaws to open?

A Joby Gorillapod isn't a clamp but comes in sizes to support most cameras. A small one would easily support an iPhone.

Pedco makes a couple of small table top tripods; the mini size has a velcro wrap for placing it on poles or fencing.

These small clamps are marketed under different names and are available from different "brands" (although I'm convinced they're actually identical). I've got two of them to mount my Sony PCM-M10s to the Manfrotto 099b extension and they're of decent quality.
The details for max. opening vary from 2.16" to 2.4", so I'm not sure which size is correct.
