      This adapter allowed me to use a new Manfrotto 324RC2 swivel ball type tripod head with a 3/8" hole on an older, sturdy Slik U212 tripod with a 1/4" thread. The adapter fits directly on top of the tripod screw and top surface. The adapter plate is not as wide as the top of the tripod and there is a little bit of a gap between the top plate of the tripod and the bottom plate of the tripod head, however, it does not seem to affect the sturdiness at all. Easy to install, starting using my new Manfrotto right away.

      So this thing does what it says with a catch. Since it is rubber coated, there will be some play with whatever camera or device you put on top of it. Personally - I think that is ridiculous. What do I mean? - I mean that the unit will be able to move side to side and whatnot ontop of this mount.

        This part was hard to find from other web sites, but I found it here at B&H. Worked great, I could finish my installation with it.

              I bought an external mic to make higher quality recordings with my DSLR. I wanted to mount the mic on a tripod to position it closer to my subject and away from my camera. However, the mic has a 3/8" nut and my tripod has a 1/4" screw. This little adapter makes the connection very effectively. The 1.18" knurled flange makes gripping it easy when it is set in place and it has a padded seat to grip the base of the mic without scarring it when its screwed down.

                I used this adapter to a Blackrapid strap to a Markins quick release clamp. It adds a little weight, but nothing to worry about.

                Just the thing I needed to attach my gimbal head to my tripod. Yes, there is a rubber washer between the head and tripod but you can remove it if you think that contributes to instability. It's small so it is not obvious and precisely made. I highly recommend this adapter.

                  Works great. Because the 1/4 inch post I put it on had a rubber mat around it this adapter will not come off. I'm not worried about it because I have no reason to take it off. It's not a thread problem though. That is machined perfectly.

                    I use this to put a 3/8" thread on my 1/4"-20 threaded monopod, to accomodate a 3/8" threaded ball head. I like this gizmo because it's a good size and easier to see than some others that are tiny and easy to loose.

                                  Its better than the bushing inserts that would require a screwdriver. Don't usually carry a screwdriver when shooting.

                                        I am currently using this Adaptor ring to marry an Italian Made Manfrotto Tripod head with a German made CullMann Tripod that's over 20 years old ! works great !I like its price ! The Finish on the item is great and it feels solid ! and is easy to install or remove without tools ! which is a big plus !There is a small Rubber disk or spacer that sits between the 3/8 treads and the mounting ring ! so far it helps keep the Adaptor secured onto the Manfrotto tripod head but... I'm not sure if I like that extra "GIVE" or spongeness, it might give the whole assembly ? I would rather have it sit Metal on Metal ! but that's just me !I am very pleased with my purchase !

                                            This is a great time for mount items to camera stands. Well put together and very helpful.

                                              I use this to mount my Manfrotto ball and video heads to a variety of jigs, mainly for video. It works great and is much better than the simple adapter insert because the flange makes it easy to install and remove. I suppose the only improvement would be if the flange were the same diameter as the heads. That would provided full, stable support across the entire base.

                                                Purchased a Manfrotto 234 Swivel Tilt Monopod Head on an online auction. Didn't think about the size of the thread on the bottom. Fortunately B&H carried just what I needed to mount on my tripod or monopod.

                                                    i had a shoulder stabilizer and i drilled a hole in it. being that it's cheap plastic the threads came off as soon as i screwed a monopod in.

                                                    so i got this to fill the hole and now, i can solidly screw in my monopod without worrying about breaking the threads again.
