        Comments about Norman 812409 Friction-Float Stand Adapter:

        I use these for my QFlash and speedlights. Rock solid design. They will not break when your lights fall over, unlike other plastic umbrella holders, especially the manfrotto copies. They are also much lighter than metal manfrotto umbrella holders.

        Good for traveling.

        For speedlights, I did have to shave off a bit of the screw to put a cold shoe on top without interfering with the flash foot.

        The only thing I would change is for the screw at the bottom to line up with the middle handle knob so that when you pack for travel, it would lay perfectly flat.

        I have replaced all of my umbrellas holders with these.

          Comments about Norman 812409 Friction-Float Stand Adapter:

          All units work as they should, however the looped string that came with earlier units is NOT included. That string is quite handy for keeping the cord in order. I'm sure that string couldn't possibly cost more than a few pennies to make/include with this assembly.

            I replaced the original brackets on my LH500's (3/8)hole. I didn't want to use the 5/8 inserts.or the 3/8 to 5/8 medal adapter, this was my best alternative to make them look more original with the best fit.
            Excellent quality, durable easy to replace
