Comments about Impact 3.0" Baby Pin Wall Plate:

This seems like a fine piece of gear for mounting lights to walls or for attaching to reflectors so they can sit in a light stand.
Because it's not a name brand product, I wouldn't use it overhead or anywhere its failure would put the cast or crew in danger, but it's fine for lower-weight lights and whatever else you might want to attach to it.
In the end, we have to just trust that B&H is doing quality control.

      Comments about Impact 3.0" Baby Pin Wall Plate:

      It seems well constructed, good price. Anyone with LED panels on a yoke should have a few of these for quick table setups close to talent. Heavy enough to not tip holding a 12"x6" lite panel.

            Perfect for my application of hanging a manfrotto background bar across a 9 foot span. This item should last at least 50 years.

                Haven't mounted this anywhere or mounted anything to it, but I have plans to attach a mirror for a strong direct reflector. I don't expect this plate to ever fail - it feels incredibly durable, and I doubt I'll have to replace it.

                Nice shiny product that looks sturdy. The welds are well done and the whole item is well finished.

                    A perfectly priced high quality wall plate. Mounts easily with a few screws and presto, you've saved a bunch of money. I discovered Impact's line of grip gear only recently and regret spending twice as much from one much better known company. I regret it only a little bit.

                      The design of these plates could be improved with 2 additional holes on the short ends to allow for centerline placement on a stud wall. If you hang lights from the the ceiling I would highly recommend these. In addition I would always use some plastic coated, heavy duty picture frame wire to secure the light in the event of an earthquake or metal fatigue.
