      Comments about Testrite Socket with 3/8" Light Stand Adapter:

      I bought this because I needed a simple way to attach a single bare bulb to a boom arm without the need for a reflector hood. This was the only basic socket I could find that did not require a reflector to be attached to a lightstand.Overall the construction is cheap and that is to be expected given the price. The build quality is ok and this socket should last many years if it is not abused. My biggest complaint was that the thumbscrew that is used to attach the lamp to a lightstand was not included. I would have exchanged this for a new lamp with thumbscrew but I happen to have an extra few laying around and my timing on getting this lamp was critical.Additionally, I had to swap out the 3/8" adapter as it was not the standard 5/8" lightstand size. Again I had some extras on hand so it was not a big deal.4 Stars for the product. -1 star for the missing screw.
