    These work perfectly. When I bought them, I also bought an identical bushing from Gitzo. The price for one single Gitzo bushing is about half as much as the price for this five-pack. I was curious what the difference would be. As far as I can tell, the difference is that these are labeled 'Manfrotto' and the other one is labeled 'Gitzo'. That, and the one that says 'Gitzo' costs 2.5 times as much.

    Buy these.

    They work, certainly, but if you overtighten them even slightly, they tend to break. Mounting a gimbal head on my tripod required this adapter, but as soon as I tightened the mounting, the bushing broke. In fact, each time I mount the head, the bushing requires replacement.

        Pretty basic accessory if you need to mount a 1/4"-20 flat plate video head to a 3/8"-16 flat plate tripod. I appreciated that the bushing was slotted. Really didn't need five, better to package two at a time at a reduced price.

                      These work great with Manfrotto gear and Manfrotto fluid heads, but have had bad luck using them with other manufacturers stuff. Can make them work with a bit of force, but it's not the way I like to use my gear. Will look elsewhere next time I need additional reducers.

                              Needed the bushings to mount my Vixen polarie star tracker. Nice to have the spares in the camera bag.

                                      It bought a vintage Hasselblad and discovered that my quick release plate for my tripod ball head had a different screw size. Found this item and it works great.

                                          These work great for converting the 3/8 posts on my Manfrotto 504 head to size them down for use with hydrostatic arms (montiors and recorders) which is essential when Im running a teleprompter to get the balance right. I can't imagine a place where these wouldn't be exactly what you need if you need to size down from 3/8 16 to 1/4 20

                                              They fit well, and are of good quality. They are shorter than others I have, but I think that's a good thing because not all 3/8" holes are made equal.

                                                    Work great and they are even better than the off brand ones we were using because they have a slot to stick a tool in for removing them from wherever they are mounted. Quality stuff and nothing wrong with them,

                                                    I had a cheaper set and one of them broke within a day. So far so good with these. The threads were a bit tricky on one of them, but they are clearly stronger than the cheapo version.

                                                      What can I say. It is a bag of 5 3/8" - 16 to 1/4" 20 adapters.

                                                      They work.

                                                      It should be good for some short screws. For long screw, it gets jammed with the screw very easily, you'll need a tool to take it off.

                                                          Comments about Manfrotto 148KN Reducing Bushing Set - 3/8"-16 to 1/4"-20 (Set of 5):

                                                          Works great. Allows me to use my Manfrotto head plate with my Gorillapod. The darn things are pretty small - great to have extras in my bag since these seem to grow little legs and walk away!
