        it's as expected, threads are fine not having any issue with metal or plastic stuff mounted on this.

          Used this one to screw it at the top of tripod and mount westcott rapid instead of ballhead (I am not taking lightstands on my travels , but i do take tripod with me all the time). Worked as expected.

                Not much to say about this. It does what it's supposed to do, and does it well. It's solid, study, and easy to screw into place.

                    Comes in handy when you need it.
                    I use this adapter for my alien bee b400.
                    one end has a 1/4"-20 thread and the other has a 3/8" Female thread so you have your choice of size.
                    Fit's just fine and works just fine for not too expensive of a hit on your wallet.

                    What can you say about this product. It's a pice of bass. It shines nice. It has retained it's shape. Humm, Buy one I did.

                      I had previously purchased a softbox & speedring adapter and I wanted to mount that on my tripod instead of buy another lightstand. This spigot was exactly what I needed so that I could attach my softbox to the tripod.

                            This is a well-machined adapter spigot. It has no rough or sharp edges and the screw threads are clean and work well.

                                    I got a few of these to mount to some umbrella brackets to clamps allowing placement of small off camera flashes in places where a light stnad cannot go. They are of good Manfrotto quality and not too badly priced. Overall a good buy.

                                          It's a piece of machined brass, what more can I say. Does the job, what more can you expect.

                                            THere are 2 schools of thought with spigots. The Lowel, Avenger etc, (more pro film biz) ones are the full 5/8 inch wide all the way, with a slightly thinner rebated section to securely hold fittings in place.
                                            Then there is the Manfrotto with a much bigger rebate, and a flattened off section to screw onto which stops your light or whatever from rotating on top of the stand. None of which you can see from the photo!
                                            This spigot works great... there are cheap copies which are 1 mm smaller with no flat section and believe me it makes a difference. I kind of prefer the larger design of the lowel/mole/avenger/matthews because there are not so many turns to bolt a light on to it, it is quicker and feels more secure. But these spigots are great and will last a lifetime

                                              Does it exactly what it is meant to do, and won't spin like some of the other "cheaper" versions.

                                                I bought this to build a DYI adapter for my PCB lighting accessories. Build quality is good; it one of the side is flat for easier tightening. Price isn't bad either.
