This beautiful black stainless steel Turntable clamp/weight is designed to keep records flat during playback and prevent slipping.
Even if your record looks flat and you use a good turntable mat, adding a clamp/weight will ensure your phono cartridge is able to move through the grooves as accurately as possible.

Had been in my basket for a while, as saw by chance that was on a black Friday offer so I ordered. I put in the order on the Saturday and it arrived on the Monday, we put on the new SamSmith album and my wife (who is not an audiophile) noticed an improvement straight away. I think I have gotten that little bit of bass that was missing from my little Elemental USB TT

Weight is nicely made and gives an improvement in focus in use, good.
As has been written in another review of this product, the improvement is not staggering, but it is significant, certainly enough to hear a difference. I am running an AnalogueWorks TurntableOne, which is a superb piece of equipment, to which is fitted a Jelco SA-750EB tonearm with a Goldring 1042 cartridge. Everything about this setup is just right for me. So the addition of this rather simple, inexpensive item is, in my opinion, a very worthwhile investment.
Rumble is reduced, Bass is tighter, overall the presentation is more focused, the improvement isn't staggering beyond belief, but it is significant and well worth the relatively small cost. I'm using a Nottingham Analogue Interspace deck with SpaceArm, and a Cartridge Man Music Maker Mk 3 cartridge.
