I bought a bracket off EBAY and I don't like it. It's some kind of camera holder or something. What is the best way to hook these to your steel leg? Or is there a better way?

Mine works great for my needs.

The brackets they sell for it are junky in my opinion. They don't hold place unless you tighten them to the point where they either strip or break. I have camera lens mounts with similar mechanics that are of high quality materials and they hold tight. I'd gladly pay more for a tuner clamp/mount system that was made like that. ( I am referring to the swivel mount section )

The bracket for the StroboFlip was great, and included. Bracket for the HD is pretty disappointing. Like the tuner, though!

I’m using a FOTYRIG camera clamp mount around 12 bucks at amazon works much better than the Petersen one

I find that mine doesn't need to be tightened with a death grip to stay in place. But...there's a lot of plastic in it and feels like one good bump and it's going to snap. If (when) that happens, I'll probably figure a way to attach the swivel to a spring clamp. I know it only takes a few seconds, but I find tightening the thumb screw to the steel leg be a pain.

Well I wonder if there different versions depending on when it was made. I tightened the screw that clamps the ball swivel as tight as possible by hand and it still just had to have the slightest bump to move out of place. I tried tightening it a bit more with pliers and one of the plastic wings broke off the tightener. It's all just a question of quality materials. You can get this type of apparatus about the same size that will hold a 5 or 6 pound camera lens rock solid on a tripod. Cheap? No. Effective? Yes! I love the tuner but the clamp annoys me every time I use it.

I would say the whole idea of the much larger display is so you can leave it sitting on the floor and still read it easily :-}
