I've used the SuperClamp on armrests many times.  How one mounts it depends on the thickness of the armrest.  Sometimes I clamp directly to the width of the armrest.  Sometimes to the edge (like clamping to a table).  Sometimes to the vertical support base.  The Bogen 203 Extension Arm for Mini Clamp comes in handy for converting right-angle out of the clamp and also rotating around the long axis of the extension arm.

Update to add:  The Bogen 042 Extension Arm works, too.  But I find the 203 more versatile.  The male end of the 203 that slots into the SuperClamp is rounded, so you may rotate the extension 360°.  The 042 has a hexagonal end that doesn't rotate freely - it only provides for 6 fixed slots at 60° intervals.

Brian - your link goes to that model 203, which is the mini clamp arm. Is thatthe only one they make, or is the 042 you mention the same thing, but made for the superclamp system? Thx in advance.

Oops, I meant the 203.  Both the 042 and the 203 work with the SC.  I prefer the 203.  See previous post for additional details.

Now is the stud on that extension removable? I found a superclamp on ebay- the same one without the stud. It'd be great to save a few bucks if I could use the stud on the clamp alone if I am not using the extension arm.

I'm looking into these two items but was wondering if I would need an adapter to connect them -

Clamp - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=WishList.jsp&A=details&Q=&sku=298908&is=REG
Pole - http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=WishList.jsp&A=details&Q=&sku=546540&is=REG

Looks like the top of the clamp has a 5/8 - 27 thread, so i'm guessing that will be good enough for the bottom of the pole to connect to?

Your going to want a Superclamp preferrably with the standard stud (or a comparably tough clamp) instead of a windtech clamp to hold up the pole.    The windtech doesn't have enough clamping force to hold up the pole.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/546356-REG/Manfrotto_035RL_035RL_Super_Clamp_with.html

The combo of the pole you linked to and the superclamp above is what I use at the Neighborhood Theatre, Visulite Theatre and anywhere else where I can run a pole instead of a stand.     The standard stud will lock into the superclamp and then can be secured into bottom of pole making for a very strong connection.   

In fact, I've got an extra superclamp that I never use.  $20 if you want.

The Windtech clamp for sure has a 5/8"-27 male thread.  But I believe the extension pole has a female 5/8" stud, i.e. it's lacking threads.  You would need an adapter to convert the clamp's 5/8"-27 male thread to a 5/8" male stud (unthreaded).

But bhadella is right -- the SuperClamp is a much better match with the extension pole.  And I believe the standard stud included with the SuperClamp is a dual 5/8" male stud with a 1/4"-20 tip.  So it would work with the extension pole, or with adapter(s) would also work for a standard 5/8"-27 female threaded mount.

If you want to thread something onto the pole itself, you need this:
http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/546490-REG/Bogen_Manfrotto_014_38_014_38_Rapid_Adapter_.html

But the thread on that is3/8 so if you need a 1/8 then you will need a 3/8 to 1/8 adapter.

Instead of the adapters you could also clamp onto the pole.

I actually think I have that rapid adapter - but the screw is too big for my t-bar.  I'll need a step-down screw adapter.

I have a clamp, too, but sometimes I use that for video.  I'll get a 3/8 to 1/8.  or is it 1/4?
