        We use the TVMP for mounting studio lights to stands and this one is cost effective and the build quality is superb.

                  I bought this to attach a Source 4 to a light stand. I am really happy with the heft and build quality of this adapter. Will definately buy more, as the need arises.

                          I needed to convert old stage lights to fit on stands so I bought these. They work great. I was disappointed that it wasn't able to hold a conversation with me, but as for a stand adapter I couldn't ask for more.

                            This item was purchased to use with an old Kino Flo lollipop mount. Unfortunately, the lollipop was of a fine thread whereas this product had a coarse thread. I was able to locate a thread adapter from a local hardware shop, in order to mount my Kino Flo's on a standard 5/8" light stand stud. It was a much cheaper alternative than purchasing a brand new lollipop and baby receiver (approx $18 with adapter vs $49).

                              Comments about Impact TVMP Yoke to Baby or Junior Adapter:

                              I recently purchased an Altman fresnel and MSE kit stand from B & H. As I do predominantly video work, I needed to be able to put my fresnels on stands. I was aware of the options, that being Manfrotto/Bogen/Avenger, MSE, Norm's, American grip,Arri, Mole Richardson, etc. I decided to try the Impact one. I wasn't too sure how the quality would be: It was cheap enough but would it be cheaply built? The MSE one isn't actually that much more, but it has an annoyingly small and fiddly knob that requires pliers to safely tighten. I decided on the Impact one and was more than pleased when it showed up this morning. Very hefty and weighty, I was pleasantly surprised. I was half expecting something modelled on more expensive and robust items, but this seems to be cheaper in price but equivalent in quality. It features a nice large knuckle that can be quickly tightened for quick lighting changes. As with all TVMP's, remove the knuckle and you can use it on a junior receiver. A nice bonus is the small hex safety bolt that can be tightened for extra safety for semi-permanent or long lighting setups. It can also be used as a "memory marker" in case someone should brush against a lamp already set and focused - the small hex will prohibit the "panning" of the light on a baby pin. A nice surprise was the inclusion of a compression washer on the bolt, which oddly, is not pictured in the item description. A previous reviewer had stated a small issue with knuckles loosening during transport. This is not unusual or unexpected as jarring and vibration will loosen knobs slightly. As with all stands and accessories, knuckles should be double checked BEFORE unloading and AFTER a lighting change. Impact rightly states they make equivalent quality accessories that don't break the bank. So far, they appear to be right.

                              We recently got a few LED panels that have yokes that needed to be mounted to C-Stands. Enter the TVMP adapter. Solidly machined with nicely sized thumbscrew, these did the trick beautifully.

                              My only niggle is the thumbscrew can work its way out of the adapter during transport if you don't tighten it up.

                              Use to replace a $34.95 Arri part that does the same thing on a Arri 300 yoke that didn't have one. Yea, longer but the thing is as solid as Ft. Knox. Problem solved.

                                I bought 5 of theses for my par cans and leko. They are heavy duty and work great. It fits over a 5/8" baby pin or unscrew the t-handle and it fits into the female receiver on a combo stand. The t-handle is great. it's easy to grip and you can tighten it easily but locks securely. Perfect for any production on location.

                                    I bought a pair of these adaptors for some yoked LED fixtures. The 5/8" receiver allows me to use them with the film and grip gear. The hardware is solid. The tightening screw is oversized and easily tightens without tools.
