Stroboframe Shoe - Like the bracket Shoe Mount (300-SHO), but without a bracket-locating pin. This Universal Shoe Mount is for general purpose photo applications. It mounts to light stands or flat surfaces, can be used to upgrade non-Stroboframe flash brackets or mounted on the flash arm of many Stroboframe brackets to provide a convenient way of attaching shoe-mount accessories such as remote flash triggers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it's for and does it well When I look at reviews of this shoe, I couldn't find what I was looking for. So here it is: With this shoe, you can mount your flash on top of it and mount it on a tripod/monopod/mini tripod using it's 1/4 thread on the bottom. The adjustable sliding lock is very good and I believe can accomodate any kind of flash out there except for the new Sony's flashes mount which is different than any regular flash from other brands. I mount my Pentax AF540-FGZ flash on it without a problem. I believe you can use it with light stand also but I don't have one to try it on with. The black paint is easily chipped but the whole thing itself is made of sturdy metal. I think it will last forever even until all the paint is gone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid safe connection I got a pair of these to connect my Canon 430EX and 580EX II Speedlites to Manfrotto light stands via Manfrotto 026 Swivel Lite-Tite Umbrella Adapters. I had been using the just the foot-plates that came with the flashes but they are not durable and after having to get one replaced I decided it was much safer to have my expensive flashes more firmly attached to the stands. For their low price I thought these would be cheap insurance. I wish I had known to buy them when I got the stands.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A new twist This one has a twist on the typical flash shoe. It doesn't have a place where the contacts on the flash can accidently short out. That is good and bad. It also doesn't have a place where you can drill a hole for the safety pin on the flash to connect to. Instead it works by clamping the foot like a quick release clamp on a tripod. I use the SB-900 and SB-800. On the few shoes I've replaced this with I have had to put down tape so the pins can't short out and drill a hole for the safety pin. Another plus is this one appears to be more sturdy than the aluminum ones the others have been made of.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent accessory for flash use This is an excellent mount for remote strobes, even fairly heavy ones. It is made out of aluminum and has a screw tightening mechanism that will safely and securely keep the flash unit where you want it. Also no need to worry about shorting out the strobe's contacts, as this shoe mount is cut out in the middle, so the contacts never touch anything; great design. This is far better and more secure than using the plastic stands that come with most strobes these days, and far better than other flash mounts that I have seen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cold shoe...period Based on other's recommendations I picked up one Stroboframe 300-405 Accessory Shoe from a local retailer. After an hour or so of playing with it, I gotta tell ya...I am scrapping all of my other shoes for this. A really great design. The Stroboframe method of holding the shoe is very much like an Arca-Swiss tripod plate, it binds the shoe along both sides for the entire length of the shoe, with a wedge capture design. In fact, if the device shoe's edges were an inverse wedge, it would be exactly like an Arca-Swiss plate. It is this design that prevents the thumbscrew from loosening, as there is no movement or vibration possible in such a design, once tightened. Also the side of the mount that moves with the thumbscrew is spring-mounted to track the thumbscrew position as you tighten or loosen the shoe mount.The thumbscrew is large and comfortable enough to torque it down tightly, and there is no movement whatsoever, no wobble, no nothing. It comes supplied with a 1/4-20 mounting thumbscrew that is 0.5 long and runs up through the whole body of the shoe. I mounted this to one side of one of my dual SB 800 + Pocket Wizard brackets, tightened it down, and moved around rather roughly with this unit on a monopod, as my assistant would at an event. The other side had one of my rigs with the single side setscrew and the Nikon locking pin hole I drilled in the ABS. After about 10 minutes, the wobble from my other shoe became evident, and required tightening. The Stroboframe shoe did not move, and actually required some effort to take off the rig after 30 minutes of fairly violent movement.I am buying these for all of my supports, they are awesome. ... They also work fine with the new SB-900.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific flash shoe -- sturdy & safe This is a great shoe to hold your expensive flash on an umbrella bracket. The shoe doesn't require that you slide in your flash -- which is a problem for some flashes of different dimensions. Instead, the shoe clamps onto both sides of the flash's foot. A small red knob turns to open and close the shoe's clamp. A light twist is enough to securely lock it down. The clamp design seems to fit a wide variety of flashes. I've used the Nikon SB-800 and the SB-900 on it. The SB-900 has a thicker foot that doesn't work with some other brands of shoes, so this is important. The SB-900 mounts very securely on this Stroboframe shoe. There are two tiny springs within the clamp so that when you loosen the knob, the clamp opens evenly. A nice attention to detail. But don't spin off the clamp knob so that the knob and clamp come apart -- the knob is not captive and the springs can fall out. However, you should never have to open the clamp that far. Some have complained that the clamp's knob is a bit small. I don't find it too small unless I'm wearing gloves. The reason the clamp knob needs to be small is because some flashes are quite bulky near the foot and a larger knob could be difficult to secure with them. The shoe has a recessed area underneath where your flash's pins are. Thus the flash's pins won't contact the shoe, potentially causing a short. This is a nice design feature that is machined into the shoe's metal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Easy Solution I've been screwing and unscrewing my hot shoe to mini plug adapter from my light stand w/ umbrella adapter for the past couple of months and needed a faster solution. Picked these up and they work great. I just leave them on the stand and slide in my flash w/ hot shoe adapter attached when I need to, slide it off to handhold flash. Don't know why I didn't get these sooner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Nikon SB800 Flashes The Stroboframe Shoe is perfect for attaching my Nikon SB800 flashes onto light stands fitted with the Monfrotto Swivel Lite Tite Umbrella Adapter. After purchasing one to try, now ordering another for other the other light stand. The Shoe is perfect for any size shoe because it can be made larger or smaller. This universal shoe mount is all metal and very strong!
