        I needed this adapter to use my cheapo lights with weird tiny mounts on my regular light stands and booms. Works like a charm.

          These fit perfectly onto the stands I have and easily support the older Novatron 250/500 Watt lights on the posts. Perfect fit and non-stripping, heavy duty metal. Highly recommend.

              I have 2 continuous tungsten lights that did not fit on on a standard 5/8 stud. This adapter not only allows me to use the lights on a standard light stand but it also gives me the option to mount it on a 90 degree angle... not that I've found any need to do so, but it's nice to be able to if that need ever arises.

                Comments about Manfrotto 3301 - Rapid Adapter - 5/8" to Long 3/8" Diameter Stud:

                I use this to fit my older Novatron heads onto stands and grip arms. Built much better than comporable priced knockoffs and the actual novatron OE piece. I own several of these and previously used a mix of other brands and homemade adaptors. I have not had the threads strip out on the manfrotto like the others.

                I have also used this in product photography on a stand with a piece of dental wax to hold a silver pen in an upright position and avoid reflections that a table would have made in the lower part of pen.

                    This product was just what i needed for my old Flash Heads which only have the 3/8" reciever. The product is built out of metal and nice and strong. Fits perfectly over the light stands 5/8" head with no wobble or concern about the Flash head falling off. Also great that you can mount this straigh up and down or sideways.

                          I can't say enough about this adapter!! I've been around a few adapters in my day, but this one ROCKS!!!!!!!!!! I thoroughly recommend this little beauty to anyone needing a 5/8 to long 3/8, of course if you don't need one you should stay far, far away.

                            I had several Bogen light stands that were useless
                            The threaded tips had broken off I had no way to
                            secure my studio lights. I finally decided to search for some kind of adapter - any kind. It was either that or duct tape. B&H is the first place I went and was amazed to find exactly what I needed. I don't even want to know how long it's
                            been available.
