      Amazing

      It is a great tool used to connect a pocket wizard to the bottom of the camera! Also must purchase a 118 Universal Short Spigot with Double Male Thread to connect to pocket wizard!

      The concept of this piece of equipment is great, but I think we must've gotten a dud. We intended to use 2 of these to mount a slider to 2 light stands, but before we could even get it tightened on the light stand the bolt snapped in half. I believe the slider was well within the weight limit. We'll send it back in and try again with a 3/8" thread.

        Rock solid and allows you to mount stuff to a lightstand, such as: digital recorders, cameras, monitors, etc. If you don't have one, you will kick yourself one day for not buying it. A definite problem solver.

          I use this to adapt portable LED lamps to light stands. Would have liked something more easy to twist than a conventional nut. Perhaps a wing nut would be better.

                          I have about 20 of these now! I need more. I am using these for almost everything to rig flashes to rigs. Rigs to stands. It makes set-up very quick and I'm able to rig almost anything universally.

                            These adapters work wonders in allowing gear to be hung off light stands. They're especially useful in attaching on-camera lights to light stands for use in close quarters or a studio setting. Couldn't live without them!

                              This little unit is simply a good little piece. Strongly built. The shaft and nut would be nice if they were a little thicker because I was a little afraid it might break off with my Beauty dish attached but I just backed it up with 2 fender washers and it seems to hold perfect.

                                          I bought two of these to replace the ones on my Smith-Victor 720SG lights and I am not disappointed! The are solid and easier to remove than the original item.

                                          If you need something like this, I highly recommend this product!

                                                  I own two of these and use them on Bogen 2-section articulated swivel arms to put Nikon speedlights in some otherwise awkward spaces. On top of the rapid adaptors, I put mini-ball heads and on top of that I screw in the Nikon speedlight stands that came with my SB-800s. And I put the whole shebang (articulated swivel arm with rapid adaptor and mini-ball head) on a Bogen super clamp. This is a great way to mount a flash in a space that's too tight for a light stand.
