      Comments about Matthews Baby Drop Down:

      I use this on the end of a Matthews Mini Matth Boom. It allows me to hang my strobe and softbox upside down to make sure the softbox doesn't pull to one side or the other under its own weight.

      Well made, fits perfectly on the baby pin of the boom.

          Comments about Matthews Baby Drop Down:

          I own a variety of Avenger stands, but did run into a problem with their drop-down pin fitting Elinchrom heads. The Mathew's pin works perfectly with Elinchrom products. And when hanging a light upside down, this is pretty important. So, this pin is used on with an Anvenger boom and it all works well together.

            When used with a boom, this device keeps your light and modifier perfectly positioned without fear of gravity shifting everything on the boom's stud. It's well made and durable. It's exactly what you'd expect from Matthews.
