        Comments about Smith-Victor A5 5" Adapta-Light (120V):

        I bought this lamp holder to use with the SV barn door attachment. Overall, the quality is not as good as the equivalent Impact lamp holder. The attachment bracket is a bit flismsy and does not attach tightly, the cord is light gauge and the switch is on the socket instead of the line.

        If Impact made a barn door for their 5" lights, I would go with them, but they don't.

        I use it when I need to direct extra light on or near a subject. The screw that holds lamp to stand may be a little small (diameter) but no problems so far.

            I needed a small flood for spotting products for product shoots. This fit the bill.
