New Hejnar PHOTO F562b Quick Release Clamp for 3/8"-16 Screw Mount

Hejnar PHOTO F562b Quick Release Clamp overview

Although almost all of Hejnar Photo clamps were restyled and renovated starting November 2017, this new one comes to serve a specific demand and goes back one step of styling to the standard shape that Hejnar clamps have accustomed us all these years.
So Hejnar F562b with a 2.375" (6 cm) jaw length, was introduced to fill a gap for ball heads requiring a 3/8"-16 mounting screw like some Linhof models do.

The F562b clamp

Manufacturer Specification:
Model:F562B
Jaw Length:2.375" (6 cm)
Weight:103 gr (3.6 oz)
Center hole:1 x Counterbored for 3/8"-16 screw
Side holes:None
Long Captive Screw Knob:Stops at maximum opening
Material:6061-T6 Aluminium
Color:Black hard coat anodized
Hardware:Stainless Steel
Made in :USA

As mentioned previously the F562b follows the old styling approach of the F62b quick release clamps maintaining the high quality characteristics as the:
  • Decimal scales on both jaws
  • Safety stop relief grooves 2.6 mm deep. 
  • Tongue in pocket design of the moving jaw guides which guaranty a long term impeccable operation by not allowing dirt and grit entering the clamp interior.
However, what's missing are the side mounting holes either side of the center hole, present on most Hejnar clamps, while the center socket, rather than hole, is now larger, not threaded and not countersun, but counterbored instead,  in order to accept the larger 3/8"-16 cap-head screw.

The bottom side is also different than usual, actually flat and has no other alignment holes, grooves etc than the center hole and the large hollowed parts on the front which serve only for weight elimination. In this way the uses are somewhat restricted to a few heads with specific requirements.

The F562b features the black hard-anodized, one-piece, long aluminum knob as denoted by the "b" at the end of the model name. With the diamond pattern being a point of recognition on all Hejnar QR clamps.



The F562b once more abides to the Hejnar Photo standard and is accompanied by the appropriate cap-head hex screw for mounting on ball heads or other devices and the proper size Allen key.
