No. 566 1/4"-20 Screw Adapter is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Doesn't tighten on a 3/8 stud I have a few other Smith-Victor lights that use these adapters for the light stands with 3/8 studs. The hold down screw on the this one isn't long enough for the smaller 3/8 stud so I'm going to have to buy longer bolts from the hardware store or return them. Not as universal as you would expect so be aware if you're fitting these to light stands with the smaller 3/8 stud and not the standard 5/8 stud.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Add it to your grip sack or DIY list With so much stuff out there having 1/4-20 threads, here's a handy way to get those items onto baby (5/8) gear. And handy for you DIYers as well. I've used this to stick a field monitor on a stand, and for various last-minute rigs. Everyone should have a sack of stuff like this with their grip gear. You'll need to get a 1/4-20 lock washer and nut though....

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does What it Does I bought this for the simple purpose of mounting certain items with a -20 thread to a light stand. It does that. It feels fine, the quality is good enough, but nothing special. It seems odd it doesn't have a locking nut. Most items like this would. Sure, you can add one and it's pretty easy to do soyou just shouldn't have to take that extra step.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does it's job It does what I bought it for - holding cold shoes, ball heads and other things to light stands and boom poles. I got this because an umbrella swivel isn't always required (and is a lot bulkier in a travel bag). Such units should come with a locking nut on the 1/4 x 20 bolt. It's not hard to add your own though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from seems to work Just as described. I bought it to attach my nikon AS-10. the screww is too long and now I need to buy a bolt to tighten it. for other uses should be just fine. it'r cheap and seems reasonably weel made, but next time I'll go with the manfrotto equivalent, wich come aalready with the bolt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value for the money These stand adapters are fantastic for building homemade lighting rigs and accessories. The price point is unbeatable, however they probably won't withstand strenuous, heavy-duty use...for that I would use the Bogen/Avenger version. Overall though, I am very pleased.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but aahh! The product is good. The downside is that the screw is to long for my Zoom H2N mike. I also suspect it will be too long for most cameras. However, a few rubber spacer washers from Lowes did the trick. So, I am happy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Practical but could be better I use this to attach my genaray LED camera light to my lowell light stand. It works. Unfortunately, it does not swivel. My fault for not realizing that when I purchased it.
