      I bought this specific bracket because of the adapters that come with it. My radio slaves screw onto the tops of light-stands and tripods, so this was the main thought for purchasing this bracket. I can use my slaves with it.

      The large arm used for tilting the bracket is very nice when you have to hold things and adjust your umbrella/flash.

      Fine bracket for some I'm sure, but not an easy bracket to switch for quick tilt with umbrella. I have a few of these (from different brands) and I quick clicked on this to order another one right before a gig. I wish I spend more time looking closely to save myself from the return.

                Got this to rig up a crazy setting not designed to be used the way I was. This worked absolutely perfect. Comes with some adapters top and bottom to make it more versatile.

                      If you understand the umbrella and speedlight should move up/down together, setting this up is silly easy.

                            Bought this for holding umbrellas on Smith Victor monos that don't provide for umbrella shafts. They hold well and don't require re-adjustment.
                            Solid build and a great value for the price.

                                  I use this for my off-camera flash, with or without an umbrella. I love the swivel and I love the fact that the metal connector is reversable. It will mount using the large or small so I can use it on a 'headless' tripod...and have the capability to easily swivel the flash.

                                      Screws into my Nissin Flash and attaches to my light stand via screw or clamp. Works perfectly for all my needs.

                                        I use these to mount my Nikon flashes on stands with umbrellas. They work great and make using the CLS lighting system that much easier. Great for situations where I have to do some lighting, but don't have the time to haul and set up studio strobes.

                                        This thing obviously isn't constructed very well. It works, but the pivoting isn't smooth and the knobs feel janky. Fine for somebody on a budget, but buy the $40 ones if you have the cash to spare.

                                                Holds my Nikon SB-800. You will need the little base that comes with the flash.

                                                  Well, being a newbie strobist, this would be my first time using them and attaching them to my new tripod, umbrella, and strobe...easily done and works great. will definitely buy these again when it's time to expand my gear collection.
