Simple, easy to use, and I wonder why more companies don't make things like this. All you need is a sync cord and you can fire three flashes with a single receiver. I put this at the end of a monopod to make a light stick in a shoot recently, and if you have an assistant that knows how to light (or follow instructions), you can move fast fast fast. Anyone shooting weddings or events can get a lot of mileage with one of these. Will likely order another.

A very small unit. Simple design. Should work with low to moderate use. Have my doubts about its stregth in holding the three speedlights securely while up on a lightstand Possible light modifer such as an umbrella attached to light stand may be unsteady. Cost is very low. We will keep as a possible back up if needed on inside work should our other heaftier unit not be available.. This unit does have a port that accepts a 33' impact sync cord ( a plus )

Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

I picked this up as a very small and very replaceable (due to cost) triple-flash adapter. It works, and fires three flashes at once with use of only one radio trigger + a sync cable. So that's good. Will it last forever? I doubt it - construction is mostly plastic and putting three flashes on this thing does indeed make me a bit nervous. But it's a small and lightweight accessory that works for me for now, and solves a problem. Good enough. Will likely upgrade to a more substantial multi-flash bracket later on.

        Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

        I was looking for a flash mount that I could use in a variety of ways and this one is just perfect. It's stable and works well on my light stands, on my umbrella mount and on my tripod. I can fire multiple flashes at one time or have more flexibility of how I place that one flash. The price was right and so far I'm very pleased with the product.

        I use it with 3 Nikon sb-800's and it works perfectly. I also added a wireless trigger to set all three off to free up a couple triggers.

              Decided to tie together 3 Canon SpeedLites instead of buying another studio strobe. This works great.

                  Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

                  I just needed something to help combine my speedlights without having to use another system of lights, ie Alienbees, etc on location. I also didn't want to have a receiver on each hotshoe to trigger the flashes.

                  This simply gets the job done. I can trigger all 3 flashes with on receiver and now I have plenty of flash power.
                  Be careful when attaching the PC cord. One of my triggers wouldn't work, but a newer trigger worked well, however, the speedlights didn't like me messing with the PC cords while the speedlights were on, so I hope I don't blow anything up.

                  Don't expect to use it a lot, but when you need that extra stop of flash... Works as advertised. Construction is a little light to hold 3 full sized speed lights, but it does. Note that the offset shoe on a Flex-TT5 precludes it from being mounted on this adapter. Velcro it to the light stand.

                      I use this product when I just one a single light source, but need a little extra power than one speed light along can give. My speedlites feel secure in the hot shoe brackets and it gives me ample power when using larger umbrellas or softboxes for an on location shoot, when strobes are not an option.

                        Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

                        I could have given this 5 stars if it has a one foot cable included. I'm trying to use this with my Pocket Wizard Plus II. I'm now looking for the 3.5mm male to male mono cable to buy before I can use this thing.
