      I used these to convert my RPS Studio light set to flash stands for my sb-800 Nikon flashes. They work GREAT. I only took off one star because they seem to short the pins on the nikon sb-800 if I wiggle the flash around - making the flash go off. (For the record, I couldnt get the flashes to fire when they were in remote mode). I solved this with a little piece of electrical tape - you cant see it and helps tighten the mount a bit too.

      The mount is made of metal and is strong and has hefty feel. It has teeth to set the angle and the knob is spring loaded, which is a nice touch. Its overall very well made, especially for the price. The base looks like it would fit a 1/2" diameter rod and fit my stands perfectly.

      the metal build looks like it will outlast me. the problem i have with it is i own two canon 600 ex-rt flashes which are pretty heavy, they have a weather proof boot which makes it a little tough to seat it in all the way that is ok . the real problem i feel is that the shoe mount on the wescott does not surround the flash seat enough for me to feel confident to put a $500 flash on such a small amount of lip bucause even if you snug up the thumb screw there is not much support. In the pic I included look at the angles on the wescott.dont know if the 600 base plate is thicker than most other flashes, i thought that was fairly standard. so I use the included table top bracket supplied with the 600 screwed to the wescott 14/20 screw after removing the hot shoe adapator, an extra step but i feel more secure it will not come crashing to the ground if someone bumps into the light stand.

      There are better alternatives

      By Nour El Refai

      from Cairo, Egypt

      Comments about Westcott Adjustable Shoe Mount Umbrella Bracket:

      Its heavy duty, & good size. But I have two problems.
      1- Not confident with its shoe mount
      2- The knob that holds the umbrella stud is so small and its difficult to toghten. On many cases I found the umbrella slides when I swivel the bracket.

        Allows correct positioning of flash in 24" softbox, which I wasn't able to do with the previous bracket.

          Works as described to fit the soft boxes I have, were as my previous shoe mounts didn't. This one was prescribed by Westcott and put my flash were it needed to be in the soft box.

            So what I really needed was a way to mount my Canon Speedlite to a standard stand and this was the ticket. It's really nice that it articulates and that you can also mount an umbrella with it. A great mount!

                                well, it went on easily and allows the flash to tilt. It tilts perfectly... if only my westcott would move with it! guess I need a boom arm.

                                  One of the better brackets available by far.

                                        Well made, solid unit. Plenty of adjustability. I don't care for the thumbscrew tightener on the top but other than that it is a good unit.

                                            Works great and fairly easy to use. Only thing is the screw to hold the shoe mount can be tough to loosen by hand. But overall great product for the money.

                                              I was a little worried that the quality and materiel of this product would be cheap and seem as tho it would easily break. But when it came in, I was pleased to see how durable it was. Very versatile and met all of my expectations.
