Stroboframe Shoe - General Purpose (Includes 1/4 x 20 Mounting Screw)

B&H # STAS Mfr # 300-405
You Pay: $8.78

Stroboframe Shoe - Like the bracket Shoe Mount (300-SHO), but without a bracket-locating pin. This Universal Shoe Mount is for general purpose photo applications. It mounts to light stands or flat surfaces, can be used to upgrade non-Stroboframe flash brackets or mounted on the flash arm of many Stroboframe brackets to provide a convenient way of attaching shoe-mount accessories such as remote flash triggers.

      Based on other's recommendations I picked up one Stroboframe 300-405 Accessory Shoe from a local retailer. After an hour or so of playing with it, I gotta tell ya...I am scrapping all of my other shoes for this. A really great design. The Stroboframe method of holding the shoe is very much like an Arca-Swiss tripod plate, it binds the shoe along both sides for the entire length of the shoe, with a wedge capture design. In fact, if the device shoe's edges were an inverse wedge, it would be exactly like an Arca-Swiss plate. It is this design that prevents the thumbscrew from loosening, as there is no movement or vibration possible in such a design, once tightened. Also the side of the mount that moves with the thumbscrew is spring-mounted to track the thumbscrew position as you tighten or loosen the shoe mount.The thumbscrew is large and comfortable enough to torque it down tightly, and there is no movement whatsoever, no wobble, no nothing. It comes supplied with a 1/4-20 mounting thumbscrew that is 0.5" long and runs up through the whole body of the shoe. I mounted this to one side of one of my dual SB 800 + Pocket Wizard brackets, tightened it down, and moved around rather roughly with this unit on a monopod, as my assistant would at an event. The other side had one of my rigs with the single side setscrew and the Nikon locking pin hole I drilled in the ABS. After about 10 minutes, the wobble from my other shoe became evident, and required tightening. The Stroboframe shoe did not move, and actually required some effort to take off the rig after 30 minutes of fairly violent movement.I am buying these for all of my supports, they are awesome. [...] They also work fine with the new SB-900.

      I bought the shoe to use on my Stroboframe Flip Flash.
      Well-made, but the mounting screw will not work with the Stroboframe flip-flash 35. The wings are too large, and there is no anti-twist arrangement on the shoe.
      Presently, I am using velcro on my bracket and sc-17 cord, mounted with a 1/2 inch 1/4-20 machine screw. I suppose the velcro would do by itself, but I tend to overdo stuff. But, my flash mounting does not twist...ever! Unfortunately, the Stroboframe shoe does not provide the hoped-for improvement.

        Comments about Stroboframe Shoe - General Purpose (Includes 1/4 x 20 Mounting Screw):

        This is a well-made (precision)shoe; it's even "spring-loaded" to back out as you loosen the screw.

        One thing, the item no longer looks like the photo - the bottom attachment screw is no longer a "wing" design; rather its just round (takes less space) and there is no longer a washer included.

        But it is much better than similar products.

          I use these to mount speedlites on umbrella brackets as well as screw them down to pieces of plywood to make speedlite stands replacing the plastic stands that came with the speedlites, being that I managed to break all of those. They cost about the same as it would to replace the broken stands with more flimsy plastic stands.

                    I use this show mount to attach my SB600 and my Yongnuo 568 to an umbrella adapter and it makes a nice tight hold. So far this product has worked flawlessly.

                      The Stroboframe Shoe is perfect for attaching my Nikon SB800 flashes onto
                      light stands fitted with the Monfrotto Swivel Lite Tite Umbrella Adapter. After purchasing one to try, now ordering another for other the other light stand.

                      The Shoe is perfect for any size shoe because it can be made larger or smaller.

                      This universal shoe mount is all metal and very strong!

I have a couple of Canon flashes: the 430EX II and 580EX II which of course fit beautifully on this shoe. Great set-up for portrait work!

                                  I use this to connect my hot shoe flash to my light stand. works perfectly, not worried about it breaking.

                                    I got a pair of these to connect my Canon 430EX and 580EX II Speedlites to Manfrotto light stands via Manfrotto 026 Swivel Lite-Tite Umbrella Adapters. I had been using the just the foot-plates that came with the flashes but they are not durable and after having to get one replaced I decided it was much safer to have my expensive flashes more firmly attached to the stands. For their low price I thought these would be cheap insurance. I wish I had known to buy them when I got the stands.

                                        All metal construction does what it's supposed to do. Add one of these onto one of the large Joby Tripods and you can mount your flash almost anywhere

                                            Does exactly what it should in holding my flash and wireless trigger. Seems durable but haven't put it through a lot of paces yet.

                                                  I use these clamps on tripods being used to hold slave flashes. I also use these clamps on frames to hold the flash with a flash control cable attachment.

                                                      Quality build, strong and sturdy. The screw in clip was upside down when I received it, but after i fixed that, it holds my flashes very well.
