Nasty Clamps Grab What Gorillas Can't

Illustration for article titled Nasty Clamps Grab What Gorillas Cant

My Gorillapod can grab onto just about anything—provided it's round, preferably magnetic, or made of glass. That limits the places I can actually stick it. The Nasty Clamps however are the Bizzaro Gorillapod—attaching to tables, shelves, and anything else with an edge.


The Nasty Clamp is, well, a clamp. With an articulated and extendable neck that ends in a quarter-inch mount. This makes it compatible with a variety of devices from iPhones to DSLR's. It's also available with a sun-blocking flag attachment made from LEGO material. It clips onto your rig using a hot-foot attachment to prevent glare and rain from reaching the lens. It can also be used to hold items in front of the camera for making your own Naked Gun intro parody


The only issue with the Clamps is that while they go where the Gorillapod can't, the corollary is that they can't go where the GP can. Since its base is a clamp, it can't stand on its own and is limited to grasping duties. The Nasty Clamp costs $44, the Nasty Flag costs $61, both are available from the company's site.
