Quality Control issues

      Comments about Impact Rapid Baby to 3/8" Male Threaded Adapter:

      I purchased 2 of these. One of them was too small to fit on a standard light stand tip. I called Impact to note the problem, and they did say they would replace, but that I would have to pay for shipping.

          Works great atop a light stand with 5/8" stud and even at the end of the Impact Telescopic Disk Reflecter Holder even though it's only 5/16" in diameter to attach a 3/8" mic shock mount.

          does its job

          Comments about Impact Rapid Baby to 3/8" Male Threaded Adapter:

          This adapter does its job. I use it to fasten to a stand to convert to this larger threaded mount piece. The stand has a brass tip that I mount this piece to. Everytime I mount it it scrathes the brass. Not a big deal maybe a rubber tip a the end of the threaded screw could prvent this. Also, the packaging says that the product contains a chemical known to California to cause cancer but not much explanation of what the chemical is. I do not like seeing this on products I use often.

          Good product, good price

          Comments about Impact Rapid Baby to 3/8" Male Threaded Adapter:

          I needed a way to mount individual theatrical lighting instruments on a basic light stand. Several companies make this, but for such a simple adapter I couldn't see paying more just to get it from a major name manufacturer.

          This does exactly what I need. I will he buying more.

            Comments about Impact Rapid Baby to 3/8" Male Threaded Adapter:

            Very solid construction adapter with multiple uses. Everything except the handle is steel so you don't have to worry about it breaking. I put them on the end of a grip arm to attach a camera weighing jsut a few pounds and its very secure. I was using them to help hold china balls, but I am changing the way I am rigging those to a karabenier in a grip head.

            Comments about Impact Rapid Baby to 3/8" Male Threaded Adapter:

            I use this to enable me to put heavy spot studio lights onto my strobe light tripods.
            I have not found a simple devise such as them until now that allowed me to use my lights.
            They are simple to use and appear to be robust.

              I bought this for a light that was missing the stand adapter on its yoke and this did the trick. Only wish it had a washer or two, its a bit difficult to really get it tightened down well on install.

                Love the design, just what I needed to attach my 5 ft. slider onto 2 elavated light stands. Built tough to last.
