Product Highlights
  • Cold Shoe Accessory Mount
  • Accepts Standard Shoe-Mount Devices
  • 1/4"-20 Threaded Bottom Mount
  • Spring-Tensioned Adjustment Screw
  • Lightweight Aluminum Construction
  • Semi-Matte Black Anodized Finish

The Universal Accessory Shoe Mount from Vello is a convenient and adjustable cold-shoe mount. Small and useful - this shoe provides a secure mounting option for virtually any type of shoe-mounted device - radio slaves, speedlights, light meters, etc.

Belying its true capabilities, this seemingly innocuous accessory part will lie harmlessly at the bottom of your gear bag, or in the corner of a parts box. It won't take up much room, nor will it weigh you down. Remaining nearly invisible amongst a cornucopia of accumulated photographic gadgetry, this clever shoe is just waiting for an opportunity to spring into action and save the day. By providing a simple yet effective mounting solution in the blink of an eye - this pint-sized gizmo is worth its weight in gold.

Constructed from durable aluminum bar-stock, and finished with a discreet semi-matte black anodized coating - the Universal Shoe Mount is a reliable covert interface between your shoe-mounted device and the intended mounting platform.

The bottom plate is machined flat with a relief cut to ensure strength and a secure fit to almost any flat surface. The mounting hole features the ubiquitous 1/4"-20 thread that's so commonly and conveniently found on photographic equipment. An oversized knurled plastic knob that can be visualized with ease in less than ideal lighting conditions graces the side of this fine mounting solution - turning it adjusts the spring-tensioned side-piece to accommodate various sized shoes and mounts.

      I'm using two of these clamps with Giottos mini ballheads to support an SB-800 and SB-600 for closeup work. The clamps hold perfectly well. The only caveat would be the plastic knob. No biggie, though; I can afford to replace it at this price.

      Good mounting for cold shoe items

      No 1/4 inch screw included for mounting on camera.

          This shoe easily attaches to the Stroboframe Digital Pro-T Flash Bracket but I prefer to use a SC-29 TTL Remote cord for immediate flash. The Universal Accessory Shoe Mount does mount the flash easily to the frame and in a stable fashion.

            Used for off-camera flash mounted on light stands. More compact than using speedlight stand as a cold shoe adapter.

                      Seems like a good solid shoe. No problems with it. I use these to mount shotguns, lights, recorders and about everything else that belongs on my rig.

                                          I was looking for a secure cold shoe to mount a flash on a light stand. This item easily fastens onto a 1/4 inch screw and then locks in tight my flash.

                                            I use these cold shoes to mount speedlights on homemade flash brackets. They're very sturdy and dependable for the price.My only -1 for this item is that it didn't come with a 1/4"-20 screw to mount them (I also bought a couple that had the screw, but why make a model without a screw?) I obtained a few thumbscrews at my hardware store to complete the item.

                                                  What can I say, it's a cold shoe. Good build quality.

                                                  I lost the spring inside of the shoe mount on my flash blacket, needed just the show mount only, it works perfect and holds well.

                                                    I use it to mount accessories on my focus rail, things like remote sensors, triggers even flash.
                                                    I use it to mount my level on the bar for pan photos make it easyer to level tripod head for proper horaziontal aligment. Also used to mount lightning triggers so I don't have to keep realigning things when I change from Vert to Horz.

                                                        This product is well made. It securely holds shotgun mic on top of "XLR to Mini adapter box" that I placed on top of my Canon DSLR.
