        A must if you have the 50 Watt Bulbs

              We have been using the Spiderlite TD5s for a couple of years on our In Times of War Documentary Project. Our last shoot we upgraded from the 27 watt bulbs to the 50 watt. What a major improvement on an already ineradicable piece of equipment. The only problem was the protective caps we had didn't fit anymore. These new ones work on both the 27 watt and 50 watt bulbs. They protected our bulbs clear across the county, flying from LA to Connecticut. Highly recommended!

                  I used to hate bringing the Spiderlite on location because of the setup time. With this cap, it is no problem leaving your bulbs installed and transporting the light to a shoot. The cap is well made and fits snugly. I'm wrapping up shooting an indie feature and I haven't had a single bulb break through all the shoot days. A definite must buy!

                    Half the price of replacing the lamps makes this plastic cap is worth every penny! The only thing I don't like about it is the placement of the Velcro straps just because they go right over the cord and light switches but that is petty considering what it is being used for

                      Comments about Westcott 50 Watt Protective Cap for Spiderlite TD5:

                      The TD5 Protective Cap is a must have item if you decide you want to transport your TD5 lighting kit without having to remove the bulbs. The cap is made of very strong and durable plastic and is form-fitted to fit snugly over the bulbs and around the metal base of the TD5. The cap itself has 4 rectangular cutout areas around its base that slide over the 4 rectangular metal areas of the TD5 (where the softbox rods insert). The design of the 4 notches is to make certain that the protective cap cannot be rotated when covering the bulbs. In addition, there are two long velcro straps that are pop-riveted to the cap with a mating velcro strip pop-riveted on the opposite side. These velcro straps can then be wrapped across the backside of the TD5 itself to completely secure the cap onto the TD5 without fear of the cap coming off.

                      There really is nothing bad to say about the protective cap, it serves a specific purpose and keeps your TD5 bulbs protected when transporting.

                        This is a protective cap, shielding your Spiderlites from damage during during transport. Like most photographers, you often need to transport your lights to a sight for a shoot. Face it CFL Bulbs are fragile, Protect them with a hard plastic cap ensuring their safe arrival.

                            works as advertised. carry the lights with the bulbs in place. 4 stars because it's a little too expensive for a piece of plastic.

                              Face it, these are expensive bulbs an these caps protect them incredibly well. If you have not tried the Spiderlite TD5's you are missing a chance at some great soft light that is so easy to use, you will think you are cheating!
