      These PC sync cables are one of the absolute best investments I've ever made in all of the photo equipment I've ever purchased. I use pocketwizards to fire my 580EX II strobes, and - up until now - I was using the supplied PC cables that they came with to connect the PW to my flash. The problem, however, was that the end of the PC cable which connects to the flash would constantly become loose, therefore, when I'd go to take an image, the flash wouldn't fire, since it was not receiving a signal from the pocketwizard (do to the loose cable). These locking cables fix that problem. Now my flash fires every single time. No more missed shots. I wish I had bought these years ago.

      Not so swell with Canon

      We thought this product would work with Canon flashes too, but it doesn't seem to be too reliable.

      The best cord for Nikon DSLRs

            The regular PW pc cord is not reliable with the wider pc port on NIkon cameras. This cord seats very solidly and of course threads into the pc port on Nikon pro cameras. A must have.

                its so easy for a sync cable to fall out during a shoot but thats why we us this cable so its one less malfunction to worry about with its locking capabilities.

                                    This cable solves the problem of loose PC connections causing misfires with remote flashes. I use it to connect Nikon SB900's to a remote trigger. The screw connection works like a charm and is reliable with this cable. The cord is a nice heavy weigh construction built for durability.

                                          I bought this cable to replace a PC Sync Cable that did not have a locking mechanism. This cable is definitely more secure and reliable for trigging my Speedlites remotely with my Pocketwizards. Surprisingly, the locking PC Sync cables are very hard to find.

                                            Only used at one event so far (thus the 4 stars) but they apear to be the answer to my mis-fires with my pocket wizards and 580exII flashes. Had many issues with the cables coming loose or just turning in the socket causing flashes not to fire. Used this cable on Saturday and the flash fired consistently all night (except when the batteries were due to be replaced in the system.) Only thing I don't love is that the chord is a little long but it is a minor issue.

                                              If you want to use something like a 580EXII with an Elinchrom or similar receiver, this cable is perfect and the connection the to flash screws in and is secure - should come in the box with the receiver - duh!

                                              Extra coil of cable is probably not necessary, but otherwise great connection.

                                                  Like many others, I've struggled using my PocketWizard Plus IIs with my SB-900 speed lights because the standard cords don't create a reliable connection, so I normally use an SB-800 with them. With this cord, the fit is tight and the screw-in connection ensures a lasting fit. If you're going to use the PW Plus II with an SB-900, go ahead an order one because you eventually will anyway.

                                                    Attaches to my 580EXII securely and is robust in construction.

                                                            This is a good cable if you are using a PW Plus II in conjunction with an on-camera flash. I just wish it was shorter. Very solid connections though.

                                                              Just months after I bought my pocket wizards the cords that came in the box starting just coming out of the connection - wouldn't stay put. Someone suggested I purchase these and now I can use my pocket wizards without having to hold in the PC cord contact. These are great, and actually should just come with the pocket wizards since the order cords are so awful.
