          I rented a vintage camera for a play, only to discover with dismay that the threads for it to be mounted on a tripod weren't of a conventional size. I arrived at B&H hoping that they'd be able to solve this for me and they did! The camera sits on the tripod in a very stable manner so that I do not have to be concerned for the safety of the equipment or what might happen on stage. Thank you!

                  I needed this little jewel to clamp my Rode video mic off camera away from the sounds I might make adjusting the tripod while video taping an event. I had to rig something different because I didn't have this adapter. Next time, I'm prepared for anything. I now have three of these 1/4 20 to 3/8 adapters.

                  It works great but I must have tightened it a little too much and the male end snaped off. I'd recommend buying a spare one just incase.

                    Comments about Manfrotto 088 Female 1/4-20 to Male 3/8" Thread Adapter:

                    Not much to say about this other than it does what you'd expect it to. It allows you to screw a 1/4"-20 thread male item into a 3/8" female receptacle. This is a handy gizmo for adding items to a rig when your threads don't match. Carved from solid brass, the fit and finish is very good.

                    My only suggestion would be to include a rubber washer, as metal to metal contact, especially with different metals, can become too tight to unscrew by hand.

                          These are extremely useful for mounting microphone hardware to standard photo 1/4 inch stands. These by Manfrotto are very good quality and less expensive than some no-name branded ones. Bought with confidence from B&H and was not disappointed.

                            I bought 3 of these (1 as a spare) as accessories for my Manfrotto 504HD video head. The 504HD has two 3/8" holes manchined into both sides of the head. I wanted to be able to convert those 3/8" holes to 1/4" holes for use with my Flashpoint 7" and 11" articulating arms to hold my portable audio recorder, a loupe and a future 7" monitor purchase.

                            Great quality, nice brass/gold color and the machined surface ridges provide a nice grip when tightening and loosening the adapter.

                                    While there may not be a great deal to say about a threaded adapter, at least I can say it works well. I record live music and most of the stands I use have a 3/8ths thread to which I attach a 5/8ths adapter. Occasionally I use a stand or have a tread that has the 1/4 inch adapter. This item allows me to easily convert to 3/8ths and keep everything consistent. That way most of my 5/8th items already have the 3/8th to 5/8th adapter attached, so I can easily put everything together the way I like it. The thread is designed to easily grip and while if tight I need pliers to twist, it is very easy to work with.

                                        I have a combo stand that I often use to hold a microphone. I have two shock mounts for my mics, one which has a 1/4-20 thread pattern and one a 3/8". This adapter allows me to switch quickly between mounts. Best of all it stores in the 3/8" threaded hole on top of my Manfrotto tripod fluid head and so is always handy.
