    Comments about Manfrotto 013 Double-ended Spigot:

    I was fortunate to come accross a professional Manfrotto tripod and lighting tripod as a gift. The only piece missing was the spigot which on my own would have been difficult to find (I didn't even know it was called a spigot). But as usual the B&H staff knew exactly what I was looking for right away based on my description. I received it 2-days later and I'm havig a blast using all my new equipment. B&H is the best!

          Comments about Manfrotto 013 Double-ended Spigot:

          I have been complaining about having the wrong spigots for awhile now. I finally purchased these and they are exactly what I needed. Most of the time I need the 1/4 20 thread (like this has), but sometimes I need the 3/8 16 thread. So this is the perfect spigot that I need. It is very solid and holds tight all of the time. It has made my shooting so much easier now. Will probably buy many of these in the future.

              I find that the brass spigots aren't as durable as the silver-colored ones. This was a replacement for a brass one that was broken in my kit purchase.

              You can never have too many spigots.

                More usable than the old, smooth shaft style. These are a good length and the center is knurled to make removal easier.

                  This nice little piece of brass fits between my Manfrotto backlight stand and my Photoflex litedisc holder. I use it often in the garden with a reflector for fill when doing macro work. The litedisks also work as backgrounds. If the wind picks I, I add a sandbag.

                      Great for throwing in a mafer clamp and attaching a gopro with tripod mount anywhere. This spigot can be used for so many purposes and just fits great with many camera accessories.

                          I needed this as a replacement for my 420B convertible boom. There are after-market spigots available elsewhere, but the price here was great and I received it quickly. Been doing business with B&H for over 30 years and have yet to be disappointed with an order.

                                    I always have a couple of these. When my steadicam monitor got damaged on set and we had to do with a makeshift monitor replacement, I used one of these. My Steadicam monitor uses a yoke, not a center 1/4-20 or 3/8...so my gaffer had one of these on a gobohead and it did the trick.

                                    Since then, i've always had one with me. They're great to send up a camera on a c-stand for a high shot---really great for gopros. In fact, I actually use one of these with a pair of gobo arms to make a ballast if I have to use a gopro b/c you can control it better on an arm---makeshift jib.

                                    I recently bought these to mount into an Obox. The obox handles are so much, I dremelled off the 1/4-20 part of it (the Obox side handles are 3/8ths), dremelled/sanded off the knurled center part (brass is very malleable) and sanded it down to 15mm and used some handles I had designed for 15mm rods---two of these and some time (I already had the handles) was a lot cheaper than the $800-some dollars for the Obox handles.

                                        This is a nicely machined piece of brass. I've had other brands where I've had to re-thread the product before I could use them, a royal pain. The Manfrotto 013 didn't have that problem and I think worth the extra cost.

                                          I use this to mount speedlites or modifiers to various stands or modifiers. It is solidly made and there seems to be little variance in dimensions in the several I own.

                                            Don't join two small half spigots together to make one of these. It may look the same, however when gear is attached and weight applied, swivelling will occur. Use a double ended spigot.

                                            Purchase more than you think you'll need. You'll always need more.

                                                If you are a proffessional grip or camera person this is an essential gadget to have. You can lock it into any C-Stand knuckle to mount a light and some small monitors will fit on the screw thread. If you are on a tight budget, you can get a Mafer type clamp for about $20-30 from B&H that comes a removable and similar stud. Owning more than one is not a bad thing.
