      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 needed a adapter to mount the Westcott Triple threat to a light stand/monopod, and this Manfrotto adapter does the job. Nothing much else to say. It was what I was looking for.

            I bought 4 of these for alternate mounting of an LED instrument kit. They work perfectly. I ordered two more of these handy units just to keep in the grip kit.

                  I needed a quick and secure way to mount a 4 foot camera slider atop a pair of light stands and these were just the ticket. Rugged construction - they should outlast me.

                            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 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.

                                        Perfect for what I needed it for. I've attached it to a light stand for microphone attachment.

                                                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.

                                                  it's hard to review such a piece of equipment. so I'll make it short: it does the job. No flaws!
