    There are lots of adapters for cameras that have no PC port, but I needed an adapter for a flash unit that had no PC-port. The top of this is a generic non-dedicated hotshoe triggered through the female PC interface. The bottom is a plastic coldshoe with a 1/4" female thread socket imbeded. It works, and the price is right, but I wish the build quality was a little better. It feels flimsy with the plastic coldshoe mount on the bottom, and the flash unit connection on the top does not inspire confidence, but so far I have had no problems.

    The quality of this product is that of a dollar store item. Yes, the price is right for a simple item; with no TTL ability, the only thing this item does is connect the positive to the negative terminal. The pros of this adaptor are straight forward and already listed.

    The first con is its reliability, which gave a firing rate of 0% when triggered out of the box. Trigger was done with a standard sync cable to a Pocked Wizard Plus ii. The second issue is the screw located on top of the hotshoe, used to hold in place the negative terminal connector. This screw is does not allow a proper seating of a 430EX flash unit. I do not know is this screw will be in the way of other flash units, but I would guess it does if the flash has a screw down locking device similar to the 430EX. The third issue is the loose PC ports. When I tipped this adaptor the PC sync cord would slide right out of the terminal it was connected to (top or side location).

    Internally you can see this adaptor was constructed poorly. The side PC port's negative connection is only a pressure fitting (loose at that). The positive connections are soldered as expected. After I found this out, applying side pressure to this connector allowed the unit to fire. With a 430EX, the top PC port can not be used. The 1/4" stand mount opening goes straight through into the plastic housing. There is a piece of black electrical tape covering the opening, I can only assume to keep dirt out. Be careful around wet environments, this item could short easily and may damage your flash unit.

    Overall, I would avoid this adaptor. If it happens to work for you great, but make sure you have a backup plan. Use it until it fails then buy something different.

      Need to mount an on-camera type flash to a light stand, and plug it into your Pocket Wizard or other triggering device? This is what you are looking for. My old Sunpak 433AF's do not have a built-in sync cable port, so these units solve my problem perfectly and reliably.

            Works as promised, it's small and allows me to plug in my pocket wizard to my canon speedlight 430ex. Very lightweight and works great :)
            Website chat helped me find this product and it was exactly what I needed. THANKS!

              Comments about Interfit STR116 Hot Shoe to Lightstand Adapter:

              I got this adapter so I could use my 430EXII with a pocket wizard. When I first got my hands on it I thought that it seemed pretty flimsy. After very little use the base broke off and fell and took my flash head with it. luckily the sync cable attached via the pocket wizard, in turn attached via the stand, kept it from falling to the concrete floor. If it were not for that cable the adapter would have cost me almost a grand i.e. the price of the would be broken flash and a new one.I examined it after it broke apart after wards and I could not believe that it was made from two separate parts. The biggest gotcha was that it was only being held in by two very small beads of glue.Take my advice and don't put your equipment at risk by trying to save money on a cheap adapter.Also, the flash fit very loosely to the adapter causing it to slip off at a slight angle. I had to "thicken" the brackets with tape so that it fit snugly. Another con worth noting if the above was not enough.

                          It worked well with my SB0-600. There were a few times it wouldn't fire but I wasn't sure if it was the CyberSync, SB-600 or the adapter. Overall you can't beat the price.

                              Purchased a couple of these a few months ago and had nothing but problems with my SB-600s and Pocket Wizards. The flashes were very loose and would at times randomly short the flashes. The PC connector was very loose as well and didn't make a solid connection to my PW cables. [...]

                              A little flimsy, but totally usable.

                                  For off camera lighting this unit is great. It can only attach to threaded light stands. It would be better if there was a universal light stand adapter in the design.

                                  This adapter is great. However... I realized once I got it and started playing with my Speedlights that the speedlight stands already have this adapter built in. So this just saves you a step if you just leave it on your lightstand.

                                      I used for setting up a flash on a tripod.

                                      Helps increase your flexibility at creating artificial light when using strobes. Gotta have a couple of these in your gear bag!
