            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.

                                          Great product agree with all the above. However it is not good with Elinchrom Quadras. The collar sits too low and the head twists in the mount.

                                            Installs perfectly in my Matthews grip head to hold light fixtures. Indestructible.

                                                I like to make DIY stuff but why when I can buy something like this so cheap. The collar has already saved the day once.

                                                  For use with Avenger C-Stands and clamps, these pins allow you to securely add lighting and grip accessories easily.

                                                  They are well-made, and shiny!

                                                    I bought the A2030D 40 TURT C-STAND/GRIPHD/ARM KIT and this was recommended as a must-include accessory. After a few days of use, I completely agree: it gives the Avenger grip kit much more flexibility for attaching softboxes and other lighting accessories. Simple but beefy and well made.

                                                      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.
