These adaptors are plenty burly for my umbrellas, except for perhaps the 7' umbrellas. Well built, solid. I recommend them.

I have a few of these now. They're lightweight and sturdy. Good, solid adaptor.

I own several of these adapters and I like them for quick, efficient setups for lightweight modifiers, such as umbrellas, snoots, barn doors, etc. Solid construction.

I use this with a custom bracket to hold four speedlites and mount the whole thing onto a C-Stand. I feel confident in this part to secure all that gear.

I love the umbrella adapter. My only complaint was there were absolutely no instructions or pictures to put the few pieces together. Thankfully, we got it figured out.

Best swivel

I tried all other brands, Flashpoint, godox, etc. Nothing beats Manfrotto swivels

Can I use bowens 500 light with a umbrella with this?
Asked by: Daniel
I am not sure about the Bowen adapter but you probably can as most of these have standard mounts. However this Manfrotto lite-tite adapter will slip if not if not very firmly tightened when it has heavy light modifiers, etc. connected to it. A more secure fixture, because it has a ratchet swivel, is the Phottix Varos Pro BG and also available at B&H.

Will this work with my Godox AD200 where I can screw the strobe to the top and just pop an umbrella in? Sort of like the one that comes with the AD200, but made of metal? Thanks.
Asked by: Cory
It will work with a AD200. Its much stronger than the little plastic mount.

Is this safe to hold a Aputure 600x on a C-Stand?

Is this safe to hold a Aputure 600x on a C-Stand?
Asked by: BAIRN
Not sure where you are using it on. I checked the weight of that Aputure light, it's over 4 Kg. That is pretty heavy. I think the answer would depend on what height you are exactly using. I have tried it with Manfrotto's tripods at heights over 12 feet and I can never get it to hold their extension rod which is much light than that. It always falls no matter how much I tighten it.
