      I bought this, so I could get an idea of what I needed. I would suggest just heading to the fabric store. I kept this, but my version works much better, and more securely, without leaving sticky velcro mess on the other side.

      I would recommend this if you do not want sticky stuff on your flash, but I would suggest more that you visit the local fabric/craft store.

      I expected there to be more elasticity so it would really engage and grab onto flash head. The rubber base is nice and rubbery (not sticky) and will make good contact with any smooth surface, but as tight as I try to attach it to my flash head, it doesn't give me the confidence that it won't slip off at some point, especially since there are a couple of tiny ridges/formations on my flash that this strap does not conform to/around. It is usable, but I think you have to keep a light eye on it so it doesn't let your softbox go. Then again, the flex in the attachment of your sofbox may just be the nature of the hook and loop material. If hook and loop surfaces were bigger, I think it would hold the large Vello softbox better. I'm only recommending one to use it because I don't want to put any adhesive velcro on my flash and this is the only alternative if you want to put a light softbox on it.

          The cinch strap holds the soft box in place without having to glue the Velcro tabs onto my flash, and it holds it very securely.

                          It pretty much just wraps around the top of the flash so you can attach the light bouncer. it looks pretty cool around the top too.

                                          I was used to sticking Velcro on my flashes, but before attacking my latest flash with the sticky stuff, I decided to give one of these straps a try. They work great (I bought 2). I have had no problems, even with my relatively large (for a flash-mount) soft box.

                                            I keep a few of these in my gear bag. Very handy for attaching various flash mounted soft boxes, bounce cards, etc.

                                                Does what it does. Use with Vello diffuser. Honestly haven't used but once. Should work well though. Nice design.

                                                I love this strap, since I have multiple camera and flashes. This strap makes it easy to move my bounce to any flash need. I also like being able to remove it safety without leaving a mark on my equipment. It creates more room when I use the soft cases for my flashes. It is very universal for many flashes and the inside of the strap is securely grips to my flash with zero movement!

                                                    You wouldn't think something so simple could be so effective; but, it is. Once the Cinch Strap is wrapped around the flash head, it doesn't move. The velcro is backed with a gripping material that keeps it (and your accessories) from sliding around or off the speed light. All without the use of gooey adhesives. And because it's removable, I can use it on other pieces of gear, or wherever I need to attach a tiny reflector/diffuser. The only downside is that because it is so small and black (EVERYTHING in my bag is black, including the bag!), it can get lost easily.

                                                      Most Vello Speedlite accessories come with velco fasteners that you glue to your Speedlite. I didn't want to glue anything to my Speedlite so I bought this cinch strap. It's easy to use and gets the job done. It appears to be well made and I would expect it to last a long time. However, after using it, I am thinking that a fairly wide rubber band might do the job just as well.
