small, quick release clamp

Can anyone recommend a small clamp that will quickly attach to my tripod pan/tilt arm and easily release again?

I need to be able to attach my smallrig sony NP battery adapter with 1/4" thread - something like this would be perfect but i have one and my pan/tilt arm has too small a diameter

Grifiti Nootle Quick Release Pipe Clamp with 1/4 20 Threaded Head for Cameras and Nootle Ipad Mounts Works for Tripods, Music Stands, Microphone Stands, Any Pipe or Bar That Is up to 1.5 Inches in Diameter Also Motorcycles, Bikes, and More: Amazon.co

So basically something like the above but that will accommodate a smaller diameter tube

This clamp is nothing I can recommend it's plastic like a toy
You have to buy something more costly like

Good luck

Hi Pete,

I have a number of different clamps including the one that you linked to. The ones that I always end up using are these Ex-Pro Metal Clip Clamp Grip 1/4" Adapter Screw for Camera Tripod Flash Bracket | eBay
I use them for everything from GoPro, sound recorders, video cams, mics etc. I like them because there is no need to adjust anything, just attach the video cam or what have you and clamp them onto anything. I use them or the tripod legs, centre column, on a church pew, DJs lighting rig etc and they are instantly attached and removed.
