        Comments about Interfit Strobies Flex Mount for Vivitar 285HV Flash:

        Attached pretty well to the Vivitar 285, but it is just a friction fit. As long as it is mounted on a light stand it work OK but it can work its way off if you are moving the flash a lot.

        I purchased two of these. This is required for Interfit softboxes, octobox, snoot, etc. It didn't come with any instructions. Works great. Fits on the flash head snug and I haven't had any problems with it yet.

          I use it with the globe diffuser attachment which works well. Does have a tendency to come loose if not careful. A little gaffer tape will make sure it doesn't go anywhere.

            Honestly, I thought it was very easy to get on. It's snug, but you want it to be. It's also easy to take off. I havent had any issues with it at all. All the attachments I've ordered fit on perfectly.

            Tight fit, but falls off easily?

            Comments about Interfit Strobies Flex Mount for Vivitar 285HV Flash:

            I bought this adaptor in conjunction with other Strobist accessories, and a pair of Vivitar 285HV Flash Heads. The adaptor is a little tough to get onto the Vivitar head, and once it's on, it's not a tight fit and falls off fairly easily! Not a big problem for locked-down studio work, but annoying that a small movement or adjustment can often cause the adaptor to fall off, bringing the Snoot or Barn Door assembly with it.
