The Impact Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Shoe is a versatile, lightweight metal bracket that will fit on almost any light stand. It includes a removable, reversible female stud to adapt to light stands with top studs smaller than the standard 5/8". An additional removable, reversible male stud mounts to the included flash shoe at the 1/4"-20 end, or to another accessory at the 3/8" end. The metal shoe features a knurled locking knob for secure mounting of all standard shoe-mount flashes, including the Nikon SB-900 and SB-910.

A receptacle with its own locking knob accommodates an umbrella which may be tilted to the angle of your choice via the bracket's locking joint. 

Two Removable Studs
The provided studs can be removed from the interior of the bracket by totally loosening the wing knobs and letting them slide out. These studs can be used to mount the bracket to a 1/4"-20 (standard) and 3/8" threaded stand or tripod tops. One stud is used for the flash shoe. The shoe may be unscrewed from this stud.

    I decided it was time to put my SB-800 flash to better, more effective use when doing outdoor shooting, so I bought an Impact soft box (24" square) and needed an attachment that would be strong, reliable and easy to use. This umbrella bracket was just right for my needs. I already had a hot shoe attachment (since I don't own a triggering system yet) for the bracket and it worked great. I'm so pleased that it was easy to assemble and the adjustable nature of the brass fittings was a big help. I would definitely recommend this.

    I use this on my 8' light stand with radio triggers, flash and a 30" softbox/umbrella. I like the fact that it can be used for both umbrella or softbox by putting in or removing the stud/cold-shoe on top. This has worked fine with the softbox so far, but it feels like it's being slightly overextended as far as the weight load goes, and this is just with a camera flash. I always make doubly sure that the tilt adjustment screw is as tight as possible because it feels like it could slip.

    This is not as big of an issue with the much lighter umbrella; however, the way I have my flash set up (radio trigger slots into the cold-shoe on top of the bracket, and then my flash slots on top of the trigger) means that the flash head points nowhere near the center of the umbrella; at best, it points halfway between the center and the outer rim of the umbrella, even when the flash itself is set to the -7 degree tilt angle. This may just be a result of my particular setup, but it would be nice to have some control over the angle of the umbrella independently of the angle of the bracket itself.

    This will work fine for now, and may be ideal for other setups, but I am looking into a stockier, beefier bracket with some form of independent umbrella angle adjustment. I think these factors would outweigh the convenience of this bracket's adaptability as far as connectivity are concerned.

        Comments about Impact Umbrella Bracket with Adjustable Shoe:

        I purchased two of these brackets to accompany a pair of Manfrotto light stands and Westcott Apollo soft boxes. I'm meticulous about researching my purchases and generally tend toward more well known and higher priced products. But, in this case, I'm very pleased with the quality of these brackets and their lower price. These are constructed from metal (except for the knob ends) and look like they will hold up very well. The knobs are large and solid, making for sure handed adjustment. The adjustable cold shoe is also solid.Bottom line: Great quality and a fair price. Don't spend more.

                  This bracket works well. I like that you can unscrew the cold shoe, exposing a threaded stud that allows the direct attachment of a radio trigger.

                    This mount works well, but you have to tighten the shoe down really well to be sure the flash won't fall out. The knob is kind of small to get it tight enough. Other than that, it works great...And, the umbrella mount slants slightly upward pointing the flash to the center, like it should!
