Designed by adventure photographer Bruce Dorn, the Triple Threat Speedlite Bracket from Westcott allows you to gang 3 lightweight shoe mount flashes for use in a softbox or umbrella. Most speedlites in this category output about 60W/s, but with the Triple Threat you now have an approximately 180W/s flash with the power of a small studio head and TTL options depending on your choice of flash.

The Triple Threat is made of lightweight but durable polymer with metal shoes with knurled locking knobs. The center hole is made for all standard umbrella shafts or you can use the 1/4"-20 tap to secure it to a bracket or other type of compatible gear.

      The problem with the Westcott 7' umbrellas is that they're rather heavy and don't balance well on portable light stands. This bracket allows me to feed the umbrella shaft through and beyond the bracket atop the stand. I can attach one or more speedlites to the bracket and slide the umbrella/flashes back and forth along the shaft to balance the combination directly over the stand. My only downgrading is due to the small knobs that secure this bracket to the umbrella shaft. I think they should be much larger so that the bracket can be tightened better more securely to the end of the umbrella shaft.

      Obviously this device is effective at mounting three strobes to either a light stand, or onto an umbrella shaft. However, if you are using the shaft approach, this unit, once three strobes are attached, is really too heavy since most umbrella shafts barely offer enough strength manage the umbrella! I don't know about you, but putting $1,500 dollars worth of strobes onto such a flimsly rod makes me nervous! In fact, to effectively tighten the locking knob it will crimp all but the most robust shafts! Choose one that's made of solid fiberglass! Using the thread mounting options you'll experience no such problems. Use some caution, and common sense on this one.

      Comments about Westcott Triple Threat Speedlite Bracket:

      I purchased this item, because I have spent a very long time trying to locate an iDC triple Threat bracket. This is same design and iDC's site refers you to this model as a replacement to their discontinued product. The idea is the same, the design is roughly the same; however, the actual result is not. The body is cheap polymer and while that keeps the price down, it makes the product unreliable. It comes with two different size female ends which worked well for me. The problem is the polymer is so soft the fittings spin inside of it. I had to almost break it to get it off my stand! I use Canon 600EX Speedlites and the opportunities something like this offers is great for increasing the light with soft boxes, umbrellas, and etc. But the flimsy construction makes me worried every time I put 3 flashes on it. Now I'm having to look around for a better option. I would save the money and avoid this product altogether.

      Comments about Westcott Triple Threat Speedlite Bracket:

      While all my other Westcott product purchases have been superb, this one is not. Made of plastic, it cannot handle the weight of a large umbrella and when used in any sort of wind the brass nut recessed into the bracket( into which you screw your stand), spins in its mount. I'm fairly certain it will detach completely and with 3 speedlites attached that could be an expensive breakdown.

          Good sturdy mounting bracket. Being made of plastic I was concerned, but upon receiving it, I was happy to see how sturdy it was.

          Good, but not a perfect solution.

          Comments about Westcott Triple Threat Speedlite Bracket:

          This product works as intended, it creates the ability to use a multiple Speedlite array for use in a soft box or outdoors to match midday sun. I was nervous about my 580exII falling off of the clamp, but it seemed to hold well enough. I would imagine that if you moved your light stand around a bit, you should recheck for tightness, which could be inconvenient if you have them mounted inside of a soft box. I wish that the screw downs had a wing nut design instead of a notched screw. The other drawback is that when you attach this bracket to a light stand, there is absolutely no ability to tilt your bracket. I suppose that using a boom would eliminate this issue, but sometimes you don't want to lug around extra equipment and sand bags. Also, with the weight of 3 Speedlites and a soft box, you would need a very heavy duty boom.

                This bracket is made of bulky cumbersome plastic, the Westcott cold-shoe's are standard but I don't find them as nice as the Impact cold-shoe.

                The Biggest issue is that when fixing this bracket to various different (it comes with two sizes for screw-holes) screws it does not hold tightly. If you want to use something with weight (like for instance 3 flashes and a modifier) this bracket will spin never finding a "tightest" locking positiong making any off-axis angles troublesome to impossible.
