    both my poles are old so when needed i have slowly upgraded to smart clamps, now 2 of my clamps are slipping so wednesday i ordered a no 5 clamp & for no real reason a lever set instead of a no 4 clamp, realising what i'd done i rang gardiners & asked if the new lever would fit an old clamp YES
    so if you have old clamps to turn them into smart clamps you only need to buy the lever set not the whole clamp, a big saving !!!
    now got 2 smart clamps & a spare no 5 body
    sorry about this mr g.

    Whilst the Smart Clamp Lever sets do work with the older clamp bodies they do not fully work as a smart clamp. They will partially work as a 'smart clamp', but only for a small amount of adjustment, this is due to the lack of depth adjustment in the older clamp body. To get the full effect a new body will at some time need fitting.

    The shims on smart clamps need replacing once they have worn grooves in them .
