The Bowens Quick Ring with Swivel is a softbox speed ring. Its unique design makes it easier to set up a softbox. Most softbox speed rings require the user to use increasing force while inserting the rods into the ring. By the time the user reaches the last rod, not enough force can be mustered, or too much force is used, resulting in a damaged rod.
The Bowens Quick Ring allows easy inserting of each rod. Then, it pivots in its module, and the user snaps it into place, with much less force than with a conventional speed ring.
