    Comments about Dot Line Flash Shoe Mount Adapter:

    I use it to mount "cold" accessories to my camera rig. It's nice and sturdy, built mostly of metal so far as I can tell. I did end up having to file down one of the entry corners just a little, so build quality is slightly lacking.

        Comments about Dot Line Flash Shoe Mount Adapter:

        Have been looking for a traditional flash and accessory shoe adapter, here in the UK, which is of the "non hot shoe type" and with an end stop, for a special project. These adapters are nicely polished and engineered and meet all my particular requirements, so I am very pleased with them.
        By design, they are obviously not suitable for people requiring use with hot shoe flash units.

            I try to setup a Canon 580EX II with it, and I was in serious troubles. First, the contacts of flash collide with the shoe mount and is imposible to fully insert it on this. Second, the flash get in short circuit and don't work. Bad purchase.

                  In general, this is a very sturdy item that holds my heavy Nikon SB-25 strobe. However, I found that I needed to insulate the contacts of the strobe from the metal plate in order to prevent the flash from misfiring. Also the metal plate with the small tension spring clips can easily come loose and fall out. This needed to be secured by some sticky-tack.

                      Works as advertised, but needs a bit of electrical tape to insulate a flash from firing as soon as you plug it in. Very solid piece and fits snugly.
