This clamp is the basis of the Doughty Quick Trigger Clamps. Its design gives a high degree of safety by allowing one person to hang and secure heavy luminaires and fixtures on any points of a truss piece without obstruction. The spring-loaded jaws stay open and automatically close with the weight of the object being hung, leaving both hands free to position the load.
The key benefit of Doughty Quick Trigger Clamp over other lighting clamps
Thanks to the location of the lateral screw, this Doughty clamp can support a heavy-duty lantern at any points while other clamps cannot. For example, when rigging a light on a piece of truss, the cross beams of the truss can hinder a clamp from closing. As a result, operators need to move to another position where may not be symmetrically aesthetical. However, this Doughty clamp prevents this problem and the oversized wing nut allows operators to lock the clamp in place easily. It is also perfect for one-person rigging.
