      Works Great!

      This adapter is very easy to use. I have a Stroblite that seems to be made by Westcott and this adapter allows me to use most soft boxes.

      it was really hard to get on but westcott has some really good soft boxes so it was worth it they should improve this product tho it was REALLY hard to get the softbox attached

          Comments about Westcott Photo Basics Adapter for Strobelite Monolight:

          I bought this for use with my Westcott speedLight and Impact soft box. It is tricky to get hooked up, but I think that is more of an issue with the soft box. So far it works as advertised. I can't speak to its durability as I just received it last week.

            If you want to put a soft box on a Westcott Monolight, this is your only choice. I think it could be a few dollars cheeper, but it works just fine.

              This, as well as other speed rings I have purchased from B&H, works
              just file - nothing is left to be desired. It does the job.

                    Made with high quality metal and shows no signs of breaking in the near future. It current holds a 17 pound soft box and gets the job done. Fits both Westcott strobes as well as Bowens monolights

                      I bought this speed ring to use with my PhotoBasics/Westcott Strip Box. It is light weight, rotatable, and makes assembling the soft box a snap. Plus it is much less expensive than most other speed rings out there.

                        I bought the Westcott 17x50 Photo Basics Stripbox and 24x32 Softbox, both required a speed ring to attach to the monolights. This speedring is a perfect fit for both.

                                      Does what it's supposed to. Although it was a bit tough to get on and even tougher to take off. It attaches securely and is built to last.

                                      it was really hard to get on but westcott has some really good soft boxes so it was worth it they should improve this product tho it was REALLY hard to get the softbox attached
