If you use C-Stands and you should then you need this pin. If you purchased the C-Stand kit with the extension arm then this pin makes your kit much more versatile. If you do not use this pin the you will be forced to mount you light to the end of the extension rod itself. With the pin you can position your light in any position you need by placing the pin through the grip end of the extension arm. This is particularly useful if trying to get a light up high without the use of a boom or if you are using a large light modifier like and octa or strip bank that you need to angle a lot. The arm allows you to get the modifier away from the stand so it can be angled effectively. I highly recommend the use of these pins and that you purchase many so you have spares to replace the ones other photogs will pilfer from your gear.

I have a mix of Matthews and Avenger stands and I have tried both of their 6" pins - I like the Matthews much better. The contact area for the locking screw on the Avenger is smooth, while the Matthews is cross-hatched so my strobe (Einstein with a beauty dish) doesn't rotate on the pin. It does on the Avenger. Love their stands, though. The photo on the site for the Matthews show a smooth contact area...maybe they changed their design - when I bought mine, they were cross-hatched.

    Perfect accessory with a C stand complete!
    It's a necessary addition to any C stand complete, just ask Joe McNally! I'm so glad I got one with my C stand. It gives me the additional adjustment to position my light head however I need to from any angle.

            Exactly what I wanted to fit in my C Stand to hold a strobe. The pin was delivered 5 days after I ordered it from Australia . Plenty of conformation emails and tracking details, a pleasant experience all round. Cheers.

                    These pins are indespensible for use with C-stands. The collar on the bottom of the pins ensures they won't fall out if not properly tightened.

                      Recently purchased an avenger C-Stand kit. This piece was not included (probably should be) or at least it should be a recommended accessory. This is required in order to be able to mount a studio strobe to the C-Stand/Boom-Arm combo. Now that I have it, I am able to do what I need too.

                              I purchased an Avenger A2030D C-Stand Kit but I did not have this pin to attach my umbrella bracket.

                              In my opinion, this should have been standard with the Avenger A2030D C-Stand Kit.

                              It is solid and seems durable...only time will tell.

                                First purchased a drop down pin with seemed a bit flimsy. This is solidly made, has a great collar, and when dropped into a grip head such as the D200, it ain't going anywhere and will hold a softbox or my Mola Setti and moonlight without worry.

                                  Like all Avenger products I own - It's solid and it works. I use these in the grip head of a C-Stand when I need to boom a strobe to use with a large umbrella or soft box. It's a compact and rock-solid alternative to a roller/mini boom when shooting on location.

                                        This is an indispensable tool when using a C-Stand grip head. The pin attaches to a grip head allowing you to secure your lights/modifiers to it at the angle of your choice.
