    Handy item in your lighting kit

    I keep a couple of these along with the 1/4" threaded version. If you work with light stands and other grip equipment, you'll probably run into a need for these.

    Typical solid Manfrotto quality. Good construction at an okay price.

      I use these to mount crossbar brackets to my c-stands to hold multiple backdrops in a small studio. Very useful and built tough. All metal socket design as you would expect with Manfrotto products.

          I've bought lights that had been mounted to ceilings and converted them to use on light stands with these adapters. They work great, they're easy and simple to install.

          I've also used these on my slider/dolly.

              Solid and a good price.

                                    A good little adapter to make pretty much anything mountable to a c-stand or standard light stand. I use mine to attach a long slider track to stands on each end. Good build. Fast shipping.

                                      I have two of these in my gear bag. I use them to mount a Gitzo microphone shock mount or RØDE blimp to an Avenger D600 boom arm or a stand.

                                      I also have one of these permanently mounted to an Altas Sound (BE-E) 2-Section Adjustable Boom in conjunction with a On-Stage MA200 (3/8" Female to 5/8" Male Screw) Adapter where I can mount the boom to my existing light stand with the typical 5/8" stud.

                                      This is indispensable for recording with microphones when attaching mics to a light stand. Very quick and easy to use and convenient to pack to have handy. You might even permanently attach it for dedicated equipment.

                                        I use this one to fix a four square to a double ball joint head. It makes a perfect combo of portability and flexibility.

                                          I bought this mainly for mounting an HD monitor on a lightstand for quick setups on location. Of course, since then I've found many other uses for this part. You have 2 ways of mounting to a lightstand, super clamp, Israeli arm, etc. You can attach it vertically or horizontally. With adaptors, you can attach mics, lights, monitors, and many other items. It's cheap, buy one!

                                            Use this to mount microphones to Avenger F1000 suction cups. They get the job done. Would prefer a more solid metal wingnut.
