    Smith-Victor 661205 reviews

    580 Steel Adapter with 1/4" and 3/8" Ends is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy - Does What It's Meant To Do There is not much I can say about this item. It's a simple metal stud that converts 1/4 to 3/8 in both male and female. You can unscrew the two studs apart and use it as an adapter or screw them together and use it as an extension. You may want to use a small lock washer between the studs to keep the items from seperating though. The only issue is the items I got shipped to me were not brass, they were silver in color (not sure what metal). This of course was not a problem because I don't care what color they are. In fact I noticed that compared to the brass versions sent to me in the past, these screw together more easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, I will buy again I use these adapters in order to mount studio strobes / lighting accessories to c-stands. The adapters that I received do look different from the picture (silver instead of gold, which I think is a plus), and they function exactly the same. I've read other reviews on these adapters that talk about poor machining quality on the metal, but the ones that I received were perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for DIY projects! I have attached each half of this product to a simple spring clamp. One by a bolt and the other by a hex nut, creating two functional baby stud clamps. They are very useful for attaching small light fixtures, that have 5/8 adapters, to a variety of structures. You may also use this to add a 5/8 stud to cheap tripods for simple light stands uses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little lifesaver I purchased these to add flexibility to our Apollo Speedlight Softbox. Now, not only can I set the softbox on a light stand, but by using these adapters, I can stick it on a standard monopod and move it as my model moves. This is a MUST HAVE in every photographer's bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the minimalist strobist If your like me, and love to use off camera flash, these things are a life saver. I connect the female one to a 5 L bracket, and then the male end into one of my flash bases. Hook both into my umbrella holder, and I'm good to go. Being that I like to move my lights a lot, I bought a few sets of these.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do what they need to, cheap This combo set was the half the price of buying the pieces individually. Yay for that. Used in a variety of situation, they are usually placed in hot shoe adaptions somewhere. Only downside... I know I'll loose them again someday soon. Really need a kit of adapters like this.
    Date published: 2014-07-10
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but check length first! I bought this to replace one of the two male adapters I lost off my Smith-Victor 2-umbrella kit. Unfortunately, the shoulder-to-shoulder measurement of the new adapter is 1.25 instead of the original 1.00, rendering it useless in the vertical holders of my light mounts without modification (horizontal is fine). The stud hits the bottom inside of the light mount before the adapter is fully inserted; perhaps this is a unique problem with my now-5-year-old S-V light mounts (a design with an internal clearance hole would have solved the problem). Luckily I didn't need the 3/8 stud side of the male adapter, so I cut it off with my Dremel tool - problem solved! --Other comments: My adapters do not have the thread problems others reported. As to the material and color; even though the package says brass, only the female adapter is non-magnetic, leading me to believe it is brass as advertised. The male is magnetic, so it is probably steel. Both are silver in color. I would have given them 5 stars had I not had to cut off the stud.
    Date published: 2011-05-15
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same anymore The one I bought 2 years ago looks identical to the picture shown, but the one I just received is totally different. Not only the new one has chrome finish, the whole male section is 1/4 too long (1.5 instead of 1.25). It is practically useless.
