The Impact Shoe Mount Umbrella Bracket is a versatile bracket that will fit on almost any light stand. It includes two removable, reversible studs to adapt to light stands with top studs smaller than the standard 5/8". This bracket tilts and swivels to make aiming the light or flash easy. It also includes a cold shoe mount, which will accept virtually any shoe-mount flash unit (except Minolta/Sony).

Note! Not compatible w/Nikon SB-900. As an alternative, please see BH # IMUB.

Two Removable Studs
The provided studs can be removed from the interior of the bracket by totally loosening the wing knobs and letting them slide out. These studs can be used to mount the bracket to a 1/4"-20 (standard) and 3/8" threaded stand or tripod tops. One stud is used for the flash shoe. The shoe may be unscrewed from this stud.
Top Swivel Section
Identified by the small round umbrella socket and locking knob
Bottom Section
Contains the locking swivel lever
Vertical Or Horizontal Use
Once the stud is removed, the bracket may be mounted vertically, or horizontally out from the top of almost any stand with a 5/8" (Baby) top.

    Easy to use. Set up the first time and used a speed light on location with no problems at all.

    I'm using this bracket on a tripod, to hold an SB600 and a 60" softlighter. It works great for the softlighter, and seems to be fine with the tripod, but it does NOT hold my SB600 nicely. There's no hole for the pin that would keep it in place on the camera, and the bracket's set screw doesn't hit in the right place to hold the speedlight firmly. If it's at much of a slant, it's at risk of falling out. (did once!) I just about sent it back, but have kludged it with a piece of cardboard.

            I use this to mount a speedlite and umbrella to a light stand. This is a great product to own if you are doing any type of strobist work. It may look and feel cheap, but it is sturdy and gets the job done.

              Comments about Impact Umbrella Bracket:

              I bought the Impact softbox kit, I didn't know why one cost more than the other till I put it together. I soon realized that the umbrella piece was missing cause I bought the cheaper package. I highly recommend getting this piece in the softbox kit in order to have to avoid buying it separately. It's very handy.

                    I have used every other bracket on the market. I was never able to secure any of my shoe mounted flash units including my Quantum Trio. This bracket not only secures my Trio it locks it in place. It also has a quick release to secure it to my light stand.

                    Comments about Impact Umbrella Bracket:

                    As an aspiring photographer, I wanted to get an umbrella mount for a tripod for indoor shoots, and I found this beauty. The casing is made of plastic which seems to be durable enough, but the studs are metal and of high quality. It fits tripods nicely and does exactly what it says it does, and for the price, it is a very good buy if you are starting out on your photography journey.

                      This product does what it advertises. It works well but feels a little cheap. The bottom screw that goes into the light stand comes loose often and the top piece that holds the flash in place is flimsy. The piece that holds in the umbrella works well though and because it was only about $ bucks I give it 4 stars. Its a good entry level bracket.

                        I found that the hot shoe is a little tight then after you finess it in, it is a wee loose.Other than that,it works perfect.Everything tightens up fine but some of the knobs are a little small.I'd give it a 4 out of 1-5.

                          This umbrella bracket was part of of the impact kit. I was glad because I looked at other company kits that you had to pay extra for. I am very satisfied with it.

                            Love it! It's very flexible, adaptable, and it convertible. It was just what I needed.

                            I use this for a basic strobe and umbrella set-up. It seems fairly study and reliable. the only thing hat worries me is the tightening screw on the shoe is very small and hard to tighten with your fingers.

                              This bracket was a throw-in with a softbox that I bought. It's a super little bracket and a very nice surprise.

                              Comments about Impact Umbrella Bracket:

                              This item came with the Impact Quikbox Softbox (24 x 24) Kit. However, even though I purchased it with a Nikon SB-910 Speedlight, the unit that was shipped does not work with SB-900s or SB-910s. I have worked with B&H to swap this out for the Impact Umbrella Mount that will work with my flash. Note: if you buy it with the kit, though, the cold shoe mount and bracket you need is in the softbox case (front pocket). I think this item is included in the kit to give you the tilt and swivel capabilities for the softbox. But, since I may use this with another stand and umbrella I have, I need for the cold shoe to work with my flash.

                                    Very easy to set up. More important though is that the umbrella is held at an angle relative to the flash direction. As a result the light hits the centre of the umbrella instead of its border.
