I purchased several different brass screw fittings and will not review each one but they are all as advertised. Very high quality and a little hard ti find. I am using the 1/4-3/8 to attach a remote shutter release to my tripod. It is a neat and clean application that looks like it came factory installed.

There seem to be some quality issues with these parts. I ordered four. Two of them seemed to be fine but the other two had malformed/tapered hex sections which causes the studs to be misaligned (see photo).It's not worth sending these back for the price but I'll be buying some of the Manfrotto ones for just $ more. I'm sure those will be higher quality.

                  used to adapt accessories with a female 3/8 thread to a male 1/4 - 20 thread and conversely.

                  nothing terribly unique as this is an adaptor that does its job perfectly as expected!

                      I always keep one of these and several similar items in my gear bag because you never know what situation might arise, especially when you are stating out with a new rig its much easier to figure out the best setup when you have some cheap connectors/adapters on hand.

                          Not much to say about the product. If you need it, you need it. Good quality threads and piece all together.

                            The only concern I have is the male end is a bit too long & protrudes into the receptacle of the flash attachment. I don't know if this could damage the flash contacts or not. Otherwise it is a great little product.
