The best clamping bookshelf speaker mounts?

What is the "GO TO" clamping speaker mount for bookshelf speakers? I need to mount a set that doesn't have any mounting holes. I have been reading about clamping mounts. However I am not sure which is the best brand. I am sort of tempted to drill the bottoms and mount them that way. I could tilt them a lot more if so, but run the risk of screwing up the speakers too..So, I am going to try the clamp mounts ...Any advice from owners would be appreciated .

They work good for my purposes. I am not tilting them a lot, maybe 15degrees? The swivel works as it should. I have Polk tsi200's on them and they hold them easily.

I have tried a couple different ones, and like these the best. Good swivel, tilt can be increased if you shim it a little with washers. Velcro on the sides, and Blu-Tack on the bottom makes the whole thing rock solid. Two mounting holes with "Toggler" drywall anchors work great even in a hollow wall.(no stud).

I'm using the B-Tech BT77

https://www.crutchfield.com/S-aNYdV2...T77-Black.html

They replaced a different pair of clamping wall mounts that couldn't stop the speakers from swiveling when bumped. The speakers I'm using weigh about 15-20 lbs. The B-Tech stands hold them solidly in place. I accidentally smacked my shoulder into one hard enough to hurt and it didn't budge.

HT: Dynaudio C2, Contour S CX, 2x BM14S, Aperion surrounds, Simaudio Titan, Marantz AV8801, Oppo 103, Linn Majik DS, and a Pioneer Kuro
Stereo: Dynaudio Focus 160, Simaudio W-5 LE or Luxman M-600A, Linn Akurate DSM, 2x Rythmik F12G
Other interests: motorcycling, skiing, being active

These are a little different in that they clamp front-to-back vs side-to-side. Might be a safer tilt. Sorry, no personal experience with them (yet).
