I got this to mount a light or other small items to a boom arm on and Impact stand. Only problem was securing it to the 3/8" stud on the arm or securing it to a stud or post smaller than 5/8". It will not mount straight and secure correctly. Luckily I sell electric motors and have shaft bushing adapters available. I made my own adapter to secure on a 3/8" post by using a 3/8 to 1/2" inside a 1/2 to 5/8" bushing. Mounts perfectly now. B&H you need to make some bushings available to people who may need them!

I got two of these for my light stand to hold the off camera flashes. One fit with difficulty, but the other would not go on. It was too small. Unable to return since the return postage was costing more than the item. Got a different brand which works great

            I attached it to the yoke of a pin spot that was missing a bail block. It worked perfectly.

            Comments about Impact Rapid Baby to 1/4"-20 Male Threaded Adapter:

            Its a shame most companies that make professional video equipment always leave off one part that makes it work well. This is the fix for one of those. Lights, microphones and almost anything you need to attach to a light stand needs this interface. 1/4 to 5/8s. I have about 20 of these on everything from LED lights to my shotgun microphones. This is a top notch adapter don't hesitate if you need this interface.

                        I found a new use for this item. I use it to allow my Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q to have a 1/4 20 screw on the bottom (it normally has it on the back only. This adapter screws into the back of the odyssey, and where that knob is I use a 1/4 20 noga arm.

                          I wanted to attach a light with 1/4" threading to a 3/8 pipe, and this worked. This is made to fit onto a 5/8" pipe, but it tightened enough to securely fit onto a 3/8" pipe. I am so glad I bought this.

                            Needed to put together a small virtual set for one of our high school installations. Using this item along with the Reflectmedia pop up background and lite-ring has yielded some of the best looking chroma-key work I've ever done.

                                Good way to mount to a 5/8 inch stud or light stand.
                                Probably best for a light weight unit.
