      This adapter to attach Canon flashes to a stand is pricey compared to others, but well worth it if you plan to use it a lot. (If not, just use the plastic adapter included with the flash.) This one is sturdy, very well made, and seems perfectly durable. A cutout keeps the flash electrical contacts isolated (no the electrical tape kluge as needed with cheaper adapters). A small hole fits the Canon flash locking pin perfectly (same on the Canon plastic adapters). The flash slides on easily, locks securely, and cannot come loose until you release it. Fits 580EX and 550EX. I would guess it fits the other Canon flash units, but I do not have any others to test.

      Small but not strong

      Light stand with mounted speedlight tipted over by the wind. Stand is Ok, flash is Ok, shoe mount broke plastic handles. Would not recommend it

        I can't say enough good things about this adapter. The description says it's delrin but mine arrived anodized aluminum. AWESOME. 600EX-RT slides right on and locks down. Locking pin activated. Electrical pins don't contact due to the beveled area. Love Love Love. I just ordered another one.

        Comments about Crane SLSC Locking Shoe Mount Adapter:

        I have done a lot of research and tried a number of different shoe mounts for my Canon 600EX-RT Flashes. With expensive flashes you want a secure mount. Screw mounts are too slow. The flash stands are too bulky to leave on the stands. These simply work great. The flashes are very secure when locked on and slide on an off just like on my camera. I wish these cost less but I haven't found anything that works as well. Highly recommended!

              Comments about Crane SLSC Locking Shoe Mount Adapter:

              I purchased this shoe for a custom flash frame that I'm building. It didn't work for the intended purpose and I set it aside. As the flash frame project evolved, I saw an opportunity to include this shoe as an auxillary (using a 1/4-20 thumbscrew to allow tool-free installation). It was perfectly suited for that purpose.

                  It's bit pricey but does a much better job of attaching to a lightstand then the cheap attachment that comes with the canon flash.

                    Great Cold Shoe,, Ive been looking for something like this for awhile and theres no other shoe like it. For Canons 580 ex II and 430 ex II it works great. Sliding locking pin sits it pre drilled hole in shoe.. Cut out so contacts dont rub against shoe. No need for tape or none of that nion sense.. I've ordered four of these now,, three are attached to the 026 manfrotto swivel and another one attached to the manfrotto flash bracket

                    Comments about Crane SLSC Locking Shoe Mount Adapter:

                    The unit contains a cut out preventing the flash's contacts from "shorting out", critical for off-camera set ups. I'm still somewhat concerned about the amount of force needed to fully engage the Canon 580EX flash's locking system, but it does fully engage. Based on the success of purchasing one of these units, I have ordered several more.
