Cold shoe adapters have seemingly been around forever but enlight photo decided to take a hard look at the design to rethink and enhance it to its maximum potential with the frio Universal Locking Cold Shoe V2. First they reduced the weight by using a strong polymer. That solved inadvertent flash firing from metal on metal shorting as well.

The frio's patented DualLock system ensures that your valuable equipment is securely mounted. The patented DualThread receiver on the bottom of the frio accepts both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 stand and accessory screws. There's a lanyard tip to hang your radio receiver from, too. The frio is compatible with most standard flash hot shoes on the market including Nikon's SB-900.

Features
  • Mount anything with a hotshoe; your flash, light panel or hot shoe mic to any tripod and many light stands
  • Features a universal standard 1/4"-20 / 3/8"-16 thread
  • Patent-pending DualLock security
  • Whatever you fit to your frio stays put and comes off in an instant when you're done
  • Safe and secure SlipNClick technology confirms that you're securely mounted
  • Universal locking pin cavity so your flash's lock works too
  • Compact and lightweight, it takes up negligible space in your bag
  • Handy lanyard point to hang your radio slaves or any other accessory with a lanyard
  • Construction Primarily polymer
    Thread Size 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16
    Compatibility Most standard on-camera flash shoes including Nikon's SB-900
    Lanyard point for hanging radio slaves

      This is a very useful device for mounting a usually hot shoe mounted flash on a cold shoe placed on the top of a tripod or light stand. It is compatible with both 3/8 and 1/4 -in screws. It has enabled me to mount my flash on my tripods which all have 1/4 - in screws while my flash is only useful for 3/8 -in screws.

      Horrible product. At least for me. I have nikon gear. I use Yongnuo 622 radios and it doesn't fit the hot shoe on the frio cold shoe. I had to put a piece of a card so can fit the cold shoe. But that was not the end! One of this product broke (see the pic) and my flash went to the floor. No, I do not recommend and I don't rely.Im a wedding photographer. All the weddings are a knight in dark places and I use flash almost alawsy.s

      Comments about Enlight photo Frio Universal Locking Cold Shoe V2:

      This is a good quality cold shoe; however, it has a EXTREMELY snug fit when paired with the 600ex-rt. The fit was so snug that it made me uncomfortable sliding my 600ex-rt in and out of the cold shoe because I feared stripping the hotshoe pins of the flash. Overall, the cold shoe is secure; however, I think there might be a compatibility issue with the 600ex because of the weather sealing.

        How to save a flash!

        By Mike

        from Rhode Island

        Comments about Enlight photo Frio Universal Locking Cold Shoe V2:

        After seeing my flash come close to falling off a simple metal block cold shoe I finally broke down and bought a couple of these and could not be happier! Simple and easy to use, this little baby holds my flash safe and secure! If I am going to mount a $ flash on a stand I want to be as confident as I can that it is held safely and securely, and this little cold shoe buys me a lot of piece of mind for a very reasonable amount of money!

                          Either I'm missing something obvious on this cold shoe or it just doesn't work for what I'm looking for... My purpose for buying this was to *firmly* attach an ETTL cord connector to it -- thus securing my flash to a lightstand, monopod, etc. When I slide the connector into the Frio shoe, the connector is not big enough lengthwise to fill up the area for it on the Frio shoe -- it continually slides back and forth. It won't come loose because of the Frio locking mechanism, but it is not firmly secure. There is no pin or locking capability on that end of the ETTL cord, so there is no other way to secure the connector in the shoe without using a rolled up piece of tape or some other way to fill up the space.

                                      Needed a way to connect Rode video mic to a small tripod, worked perfectly. Looks like it built to last for years.

                                        They are a must have if using remote controlled flashes. Easy to attach to camera tripod or lighting tripod. For the price, they are great.
