    E700 Baby Drop Down Pin (Chrome-plated) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from makes positioning of light on boom easy -I have profoto lights. If I attach the light directly to the boom, It is difficult to keep the head from rotating on the stud (downward with gravity), if there is a heavy modifier on the light. This item helps limit that effect, and helps maintain the angle of the head if the boom arm is rotated up or down. -If you have a standard length 5/8 light stand stud on the end of your boom, you will need to add an extension or change to a longer stud, because the locking knob is not close enough to the end to lock properly in that configuration.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Drop Down Pin, But... But... make sure you are going to use it. I thought it would provide some extra use for my boom and monolight - but I haven't found a reason to use this yet! The screws are hard to tighten down enough to where it won't change positions when you add a monolight. Not to mention I haven't found much use for it. I put a light on a boom and boom it over the heads of my subjects! To use this you'd have to take down the light and adjust the position and use a pair of pliers to lock it down. Or it seemed that difficult to me! Very sturdy and strong though, great steel... it would definitely work if you know what you need it for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The drop down pin is designed to keep the strobe leveled no matter how the boom is angled, I think that is why the other reviewer had problems with it, its designed to move at all times, the only screw that has to be tight is the one with the big handle, the small ones don't have to be tight. The only thing you have to take into account is the angle you want your strobe to be, everything else you control with the boom angle or rotation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solves Einstein Problem Have Avenger C-stand and mini-boom. Einstein would slip at any angle. Contacted Paul C Buff, they suggested rubber bands--didn't work. I stumbled across a forum discussing the drop down pin as a solution to this problem - absolutely THE answer. Problem solved for only $ , good deal!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a third hand. The E700 supports a Mola Demi mounted on an AlienBees B1600. The two wing nuts on the E700 can be tightened to position the said modifier at a slightly different angle. The E700 is finished well like the Avenger D600. There is nothing negaive that I have experienced with the E700 with my modifier. It is a good accessory to have when needed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Product While this product was meant for lighting I had another use in mind. I have a work table in the middle of my print finishing area and added a second power stapler for finishing gallery wraps. The compressor lines run though the drop ceiling and I wanted to be able to reach up and get the stapler and have it out of the way when I was not using it. This product, combined with a Matthews Drop Ceiling Scissor Clamp was the perfect combination. by setting the drop down pin at a 90 degree angle, the stapler hangs perfectly and is easily accessible. A coiling air line finished it out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must-have item for boom lighting Earlier reviewer Gee obviously purchased the wrong item, and the E700 is not to blame for this. It is a perfect match for the Avenger line of booms, which is what it is intended to work with, and as such it is pretty much perfect for larger studio lights - its intended function.The drop down pin is intended, as the name implies, to position flash heads in a hanging position, so the flash head hangs from the pin mounted at the end of the boom, rather than attaching the head to the end of the boom and then attempting to force the head in a sideways position by tightening the thumb screw on the flash head to its max - which will fail with any large and heavy modifier mounted on the flash head.Likewise, attempting to use a drop down pin as a 45 degree yoke is doomed to fail - the thumb screws on the drop down pin are not intended to secure the pin at upward angle, they are far too weak for that. It is only intended for hanging. It's like forcing a square peg through a round hole. Use the right tool for the right job.I only wish Avenger/Manfrotto would make a Nano line equivalent of this one for use with Elinchrom Quadra and speedlites with lightweight modifiers, as the E700 defeats the purpose of lightweight location lights by being so big and, relatively speaking, heavy. Which, in other contexts, with bigger lights, is it's force. There is a gap in Avengers/Manfrottos product line that needs to be filled.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work better that the $ pin in a C Stand I use a C-Stand with Turtle base on locations all the time. C-stand is handy because I don't need sand bags.This is much faster changing left and right setups vs. the $ pin that goes in boom arm on a C stand...Speed and simplicity is better than cheap pin by far...
