    The product appears to both function and operate as intended with good build quality and no resistance. The parts appear legitimate and well constructed, optimal for quickly and precisely adjusting or otherwise manipulating the position of additional equipment (such as the intended Photoflex XS Litedome) and camera flashes - in my case, the Canon 580EX II.

    Instructions are written in the typical ambiguous and confusing fashion with accompanying 80's black and white photography. If assembling to other parts of for the first time, approach doing so slowly. Once repeated a few times, assembly of other parts onto the Shoe Mount is extraordinarily simple and quick.

    I use it to mount my Nikon SB800 shoe mount flash units in various soft boxes for off-camera lighting. It works for that purpose but is not very sturdy. You have to carefully check that all the screws are tight, and they come loose very easily. In fact I always use some gaffers tape as a "safety belt" to ensure the SB800 stays in place.

    Comments about Photoflex Adjustable Shoe Mount Connector for Small to Medium Litedome Softboxes:

    If the spigot mount was 1/8 inch further from the bend it would work better in swivel brackets from manufacturers other than Photoflex. Otherwise, it is well made and works fine. Put a handle under it and you have a great off camera light for an assistant to control. A good product.

      These are small, durable, hold up well under most conditions. I use this on location with Chimera seep rings, 2x3 soft boxes , Nikon 910 speed lights and Pocket wizard TT5's. This set up has replaced heavier, studio type gear on half my assignments.

          This thing is made out of inferior materials, it's not strong enoungh to do the job.

          The flash brackets are off center, so the flash fires off to the side of the soft box.

          I got a replacement and it had all the same flaws as the first one.

              This works well enough. Make sure all the screws are tight enough. Having the modifier as the connector is good and balances well on the light stand but use of slightly heavier gauge aluminum would make the flash feel more stable. Adjustability is good.

                Very durable, get what you pay for. I use it for my on location shoots on a monopod. The item is built to last. Not so many loose parts either. I adapted to it but it cant hold a radio trigger and speedlight on the top, the rail is too short not long enough to have both. I put my radio trigger facing down below the speedlight.

                      The brass mounting post was completely missing of the packaging. How could a manufacturer screw this up? Well they did! What does that say about there QC.

                          This is great for uses speedlights on location. Quick setup.

                          But the picture featured is the old model. The new models come with a spigot that you need to use with an umbrella bracket.

                                  99- ok, make that 100% of the time, I put a Pocket Wizard Flex TT5 under my Nikon SB900 when I use it off-camera. The PW bumps against the connector and doesn't allow the flash head to go all the way inside the softbox. (the TT5 sticks out so much in front of the flash) Sure, the problem might be with the PW; nonetheless it doesn't fit in. Be warned.

                                    I got this to connect a shoe-mounted strobe to a Photoflex softbox (strip & Octa) via a basic speedring. It's pretty basic but works. The new version does not have the knurled nut at the top, but instead a stud with a male threaded end that screws into the speedring. The other side of that stud mounts into the umbrella adapter. Look strong enough.

                                    Descent product wouldn't put a sunpak 622 on it. Which is what I wanted to use with it. They should of had the larger thread been the main thread. Works well for light flashes does the trick I'd recommend DIY [@]for a better & cheaper solution.

                                        It took me a bit to figure out the best way to mount this up with the Photoflex Speed Ring and strip box, but after getting it all straightened out, it works like a charm. You can flip the modifier arm around if you need more clearance which I found I needed using it with the SB-600, but it's one threaded knob, so really, it's not a complicated piece of equipment.

                                          Took it out of the box and fitted everything together just fine. Been in use since I got it!

                                            Seems very durable despite other reviews to the contrary. I wish this was listed in the neccessary equipment for flash. I use it with a nikon sb-600 and the photoflex octodome 3' (set up also requires a speed ring - I use the photoflex basic.) The second shoe mount is good for a pocket wizard.

                                              Comes with 2 shoemounts. Easy to assemble and travel with. Adjustable and secure. I can attach it to anything with a superclamp or mount it to a lightstand.

                                              At first it was hard to use because there was no instruction manual, but after looking at it you can figure out how to use it. I like how it is adjustable.

                                                This shoemount connector works perfectly for small litedomes and soft boxes. It can also be mounted on a flash frame pole to make a small lightbox with speed ring portable. the shoe mounts are very sturdy and their design accomodates a wide variety of shoe sizes. It is a very good alternative to the expensive magic slipper for small light boxes, however It will not support a large softbox.

                                                  The show mount came with the last X-small litedome I bought. It was nice to have both mounts, one for the flash and another for the PW. BUT, in a occasion, I was mounting the lights, the adjustable show mount connector fall off ON A CARPETED floor and one of the side knobs simply got broken. Fortunately, was the one at the tip because I do not move this one too much.

                                                  I am disappointed because of the bad quality material used to make the little side bolts... It seems to be like poor quality / very week metal alloy... and the thread is too thin/skinny/weak for the price of the part.

                                                  If there were another option to replace this part of the X-small litedome, I would NOT recommend this part. I like the litedome.. I DO NOT Like the quality of the Adjustable Shoe Mount Connector .
