I purchased 2 of these, they are a bit on the expensive side for what they are IMO but worth it for ease of use with using off camera flash. With a 580 ex (or exII) you can directly clip the flash in and plug it into a pocket wizard, then instantly remove the flash and use it for something else without having to fumble with the PC cords. If you have a 580 ex you don't even have that option. Screws directly onto a standard umbrella holder or mono pod (to make a very basic light stick). I ordered 2 and one was defective..only because of poorly molded plastic that did not allow the flash to make full contact. [...]sent out another one and that one works great! I gave it a 4 only becuase of the cost.

Well, it does what it claims to do, a hot shoe and it connects to your PW or Elinchrom Skyport receivers.

However, I am not so keen on its high price tag... over $30 for this?? You can definitely tell it was made in China and it was not well-made. I have a bad feeling that after a period of usage, the seating (hot shoe) area will break in half.

Otherwise, it works. If it constructed better, I will give it a 4 star.

      I just ordered one of these to replace one I had for about 8 years, this one seems like it will last just as long. The threads on the old one came out from the plastic base. I was able to repair it with some epoxy but it only lasted an additional year.

          Comments about Paramount Miniphone (Pocket Wizard) to Female Hot Shoe Sync Cord - 1' Straight:

          My old hot shoe adapter used a PC cable connector, which is terrible (very loose and constantly falls out), so I was looking for a version that could plug directly into the pocketwizard.

          My first attempt was one I purchased from Impact, but I couldn't get it to work with my speedlight 430 EX II, even though it was advertised to be compatible. So I tried the slightly more expensive Paramount and it works great. I finally have a good solution for my Pocket Wizard, and I love how secure the cable is.

                  Comments about Paramount Miniphone (Pocket Wizard) to Female Hot Shoe Sync Cord - 1' Straight:

                  I love pocket wizards (I use the older PW pluss II) and I have used a variety of Nikon and off-brand flashes. I prefer using a hot shoe (mounted on my lightstand) to mount the flashes - the cords never wiggle out, and I can keep the cords permanently on my lightstands so I never have to look for them. I replace them as needed, generally about every 2 years with very heavy use. The PC ports for flashes are notoriously loose, so this bypasses that problem all together.

                    Works as advertised but the flash does not lock on the hot shoe. I might end up with a broken flash due to the hot shoe not locking the flash.

                              I used this product on a c stand connected to a pocket wizard. It works great so far. I have had it for about a week and it has done the job so far. I don't think there are any things that are not great about it. I would recommend it to anyone that thinks of buying this product.

                              If you are reading this, you probably know that the PC connection for connecting Pocket Wizards to standard strobes is the worst form of connection invented - frequent use or vibrations often lead to damage of the PC port.

                              I use these miniphone to hot Shoe cords to connect my PW Plus II to my flashes remotely, mostly for wedding work. These work very well, can pretty much any strobe unit, and I just keep them stored on my tripod mounts.

                              I never buy just one of these, because eventually with use the cord will start to wear (the cord protrudes straight out of the unit, and is a weak point, in my opinion). Also, you will want to find a way to secure your pocket wizard to your flash or tripod mount (I use velcro or the PW strap).

                              Not the worst thing i've ever purchased, but not too far off, either. The metal nubbin fell out when i tried to screw it onto a light stand the first time. I pushed it back in and it's working. For such a basic piece of equipment at almost [$] I was expecting a little bit more.

                                They are perfect for what I need them for and that's hooking up my hot shoe flashes to pocket wizards, I own three now. What is extremely helpful is being able to switch between the brass stud (not supplied with the cord) for umbrella mounting or the plastic shoe for everything else.

                                  Was concerned this product would not work with my Flash/Umbrella bracket attachments. This product has a convienent grove at the bottom that attaches securely to the brackets. Worked very well with the 580EX.

                                        I used to have a miniphone->hotshoe cord which had a solid metal base, purchased years ago. Unfortunately, I've never found one since. This is the best of the cords I've found- the others having eventually broken their bases at one point or another. Still, the plastic bottom doesn't feel sturdy enough to me when I'm rigging on locations.
