    Useful item, but not well made

    Not designed for anything other than light use. The metal thread at the bottom of this unit came loose after two three light use.

      Comments about Impact 4 Socket Fluorescent Adapter:

      I use these with an umbrella stand and four 105w fluorescents. I was concerned that it would impede the insertion of the umbrella stem or that 4 large lamps wouldn't fit. Not a problem.
      It is a great, inexpensive way to expand your lighting options.
      With 4 105w fluorescent lamps, you can easily carry 2000w(equivalent) light with you.
      I bought these to expand the lighting options of easily transportable gear rather than lugging soft boxes, heavier light stands, etc. I'm very happy with them. I have a few in my studio that will get regular use even when I'm not travelling.

            A lot cheaper that buying sockets and splitters for making my own lights. I'll probably be buying more in the future.

            Comments about Impact 4 Socket Fluorescent Adapter:

            I purchased this for close up photography.

            I got one thinking it would be enough with four 100w equivalent CFL bulbs, but I still get a little bit of shadow. I recommend purchasing at least two of these unless you have a reflective surface around your subject.

            I screw this adapter into a cheap hardware store clamp light and it works great.

            I purchase some CFL (Daylight 5000K) bulbs for a Great Value (hint hint) from a local store and they're working well in this adapter.

              Comments about Impact 4 Socket Fluorescent Adapter:

              I needed a way to boost the amount of light I could get from each light stand. This allows me to get 4x. What is also neat is that I can use it with daylight Edison-base LED lamps as well. The only negative is that you cannot switch off lamps as way more expensive units do. But with a twist of the bulb it is easy to turn off lamps. A great value.

                        this adapter is a Great option to have. the only complaint I have with it is that it doesn't have the holes for the impact diffuser hood. this is an issue with larger bulbs as the added depth of this adapter won't allow you to cover the diffuser hood without the diffuser touching the bulbs. I drilled my own holes to solve the problem but this was a major oversight by the design team

                              Got it for video, but great for product pics. A very easy to use setup. Need less light-use 3 or 2 lights. Need 4k light to blend with indoor background-use regular cfls and set camera to flourescent. Need daylight-use5k cfls-easy to find. Stuck on a tight budget-use umbrella. May get holder/lightbox later as it keeps light where you only want it and is easy to manage. Wish impact light boxes were more universal fitting, that way you don't have to haul a bunch of different fitting boxes..

                                I bought 2 of these to help brighten up my @ pictures on the cheap. It definitely did that, but they're awfully heavy. One's on a shop light with a flexible extender, and it can hardly hold the weight of all the bulbs on it. I'm also going to end up using some aluminum foil or something to direct the light. Having this in the socket on the fixture makes the bulbs stick out so far that the light goes everywhere. And the last thing is that this adapter has to be used on a fixture that fits its diameter. They doesn't list it on the listing, and of course I don't have it with me to post it here, but I tried to use one on a regular desk lamp, and it won't fit.Aside from all this, it does exactly what I want, and I would buy it again in a heartbeat. It's a heck of a lot cheaper than buying a whole lighting setup.

                                I used this fixture in my White Lightning strobes to replace the modeling light, now I can have continuos light or flash out of the same unit.

                                  I used this in a cheap softbox to add more light and tripled the light output. My softbox was not able to handle 4 bulbs and would flicker with 4, I was able to use 3 and it is a great impovement.
