By Michael D. Rubin
It's a tight-squeeze but it fits an Audio-Technica AT2020.
There's no manual so here's how to use with the AT2020.
Squeeze the "binder clip" arms together to open (not shown in the picture). Slide in the mic and adjust so it gives access to the volume and mix pots and also the headphone jack. It will be tight. Then remove each "binder clip" by squeezing the 2 arms together and removing them from the mount--they don't and shouldn't stay on the mount. Then get ready to rock.

Works with ATR 2100 when adding some foam pipe insulation
By Mark D.
Purchased after studying the reviews on quality, which is accurate for this mount. It timely arrived. The center mike holder opening is for a much larger microphone than the ATR 2100, that I own. The 2100 indicates 51mm, but that is at the mike area, not the trunk which is much smaller and used for mounting to the shock mount. After researching a replacement in the same price range, I found none. I had some foam pipe insulation for 1/2 inch pvc pipe in the utility room. This is readily available from most any big box hardware store. I cut the foam about 4" in length and placed the 2100 in the foam. It fits perfect. I didn't seal the foam, but it is just right and tight in the mount holder. I now have a shock mount that can be used if, and when, I purchase a larger microphone. I have attached a photo. After the image was created, I further trimmed the foam length to match the actual size of the mounting holder opening. This shock mount is a quality product at a great price.

sturdy metal construction
A shock mount allows the mic to "float" and not pick up vibrations that travel up the stand; i.e. you bumped the desk or a truck went by. You'll notice an improvement in this unintentional sound if you attach the mount to the mic stand and put the mic in the mount, vs attaching the mic directly to the stand. It's an essential part of a recording studio.
This item has sturdy metal construction. I got a lot more for my money than a plastic one that was damaged in transit, for only about $5 more. It fits the AT2020USB+ quite snugly. I'm not sure it's necessary to remove the metal clips that open and close the ring, but I removed them and set aside since another user said that's what one should do. They are easy to pop back in if I need to remove the mic.
