Handy item in your lighting kit

I keep a couple of these along with the 1/4" threaded version. If you work with light stands and other grip equipment, you'll probably run into a need for these.

Typical solid Manfrotto quality. Good construction at an okay price.

      Did the job and was easy to use. Perfect for when you're renting equipment and they don't offer the mount you need.

      Comments about Manfrotto 014-38 Rapid Adapter - 5/8" Stud to 3/8" Thread:

      I bought this to mount an LED work light to the top of a standard light stand. I didn't want to trust the light to an off brand. I haven't used it yet, but I looked at it and it looks to be in good working order. Will come back to this review if there are any problems.

          Simple, effective adapter, another well made Manfrotto product. I'm using these to mount par cans on light stands to backlight a band video.

            It fits in the tripod mounting threads on a Kesseler Cineslider and allows the use of any stand with a baby pin to support the slider.

            Too bad it doesn't come with a silicon washer to prevent the adapter from backing out the mounting hole.

                      I use these to mount crossbar brackets to my c-stands to hold multiple backdrops in a small studio. Very useful and built tough. All metal socket design as you would expect with Manfrotto products.

                          I've bought lights that had been mounted to ceilings and converted them to use on light stands with these adapters. They work great, they're easy and simple to install.

                          I've also used these on my slider/dolly.

                                          I needed a quick and secure way to mount a 4 foot camera slider atop a pair of light stands and these were just the ticket. Rugged construction - they should outlast me.

                                            This locked my boom mic onto my lowes light stand perfectly.

                                              Seems to be the only appropriate adapter for my lights. Works well!

                                                  Buy these all the time. They are a quick solution conversion and resolve for many set-ups
