        Baby Pin is where it's at

              After decades of being used to the standard 5/8 Manfrotto pin I discovered a Matthews Baby Pin. I bought this adapter to make all of my Manfrotto stands be able to use booms which require a 5/8 baby pin.

              You do need a Manfrotto 119 Short Adapter Spigot to screw on to the standard Manfrotto pin found on most of theor lightstands. Luckily I had one laying around.

                  I use these to attach some old c stand grip heads/arms to standard manfrotto stands because it extends the stud. I used to have to wrap tape around the very top of the stand spigot so there was something for the grip arm to lock on to. They're really solid feeling units, problem solved.

                      Good to have if you want to attach a relatively heavy equipment in order to be sure that it is really secure.

                          Purchased 3 of these to use with 2801 Mini and 2513 Midget Mole Richardson fresnels. Must have to use with my stanrard lights stands.

                            The 153 Mole Richardson Baby Adapter is the only adapter I use on my light stands to secure my lights or grips to.. They are extremely reliable and durable. No other adaptor comes close.

                                Looking at the product photo, I was concerned that it was going to feel cheap. Turns out to be a solid piece of metal.
