Manfrotto 088 reviews

088 Female 1/4-20 to Male 3/8" Thread Adapter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful Item by Manfrotto While there may not be a great deal to say about a threaded adapter, at least I can say it works well. I record live music and most of the stands I use have a 3/8ths thread to which I attach a 5/8ths adapter. Occasionally I use a stand or have a tread that has the 1/4 inch adapter. This item allows me to easily convert to 3/8ths and keep everything consistent. That way most of my 5/8th items already have the 3/8th to 5/8th adapter attached, so I can easily put everything together the way I like it. The thread is designed to easily grip and while if tight I need pliers to twist, it is very easy to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility For Manfrotto 504HD I bought 3 of these (1 as a spare) as accessories for my Manfrotto 504HD video head. The 504HD has two 3/8 holes manchined into both sides of the head. I wanted to be able to convert those 3/8 holes to 1/4 holes for use with my Flashpoint 7 and 11 articulating arms to hold my portable audio recorder, a loupe and a future 7 monitor purchase. Great quality, nice brass/gold color and the machined surface ridges provide a nice grip when tightening and loosening the adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what is should This is perfect for attaching 1/4-20 accessories directly to my Manfrotto 502HD head via a friction arm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job I bought this to attach a 701 Fluid Head, which has a 3/8 inch thread, to a 1/4 inch camera mount. It does the job of adapting a 3/8 inch thread to a 1/4 inch post, however, the head will not properly turn because it is basically just sitting on the post of the adapter. This results in the thread unscrewing when you try to pan the head, which is unacceptable. So, I rummaged around my tool boxes and found a rubber doughnut shaped something left over from who knows what, and used that to put over the post like a washer. I tightened that down and it was enough to engage the head to work as it should work, though still not 100%, but enough to work. I did a lot of researching and basically found that if I wanted to find a connector to mount a camcorder head with the 3/8 inch thread to a standard 1/4 inch camcorder mount--that allows it to work like it was on a regular tripod-- it does not exit. I do not know what the intended use of this adapter is, but in my use, it seems like a well-crafted piece of hardware and it does the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No batteries required! Not much to say about this other than it does what you'd expect it to. It allows you to screw a 1/4-20 thread male item into a 3/8 female receptacle. This is a handy gizmo for adding items to a rig when your threads don't match. Carved from solid brass, the fit and finish is very good. My only suggestion would be to include a rubber washer, as metal to metal contact, especially with different metals, can become too tight to unscrew by hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what i needed. Built nice & sturdy I recently bought a light stand and boom arm which i use when i dont have a boom mic operator. I affix my Rode mic to a rode PG-1 pistol grip which has a 3/8 thread. My boom arm however, didn't have a compatible thread so i needed this adapter to solve that problem. Now the PG-1 fits on the boom arm no problem and allows for a very professional boom mic setup via the lightstand. Plus for just like $, not bad at all i'd say.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made - works well This part works well and is very well made - sturdy brass or brass-like material. The knurling helps with tightening and loosening the adapter. One very minor issue is the same with most of Manfrotto's accessories, they don't like to clean their products. Consequently, the first thing you have to do with all of their products is de-grease them so this stuff doesn't get onto your nice clean (expensive) gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed! I rented a vintage camera for a play, only to discover with dismay that the threads for it to be mounted on a tripod weren't of a conventional size. I arrived at B&H hoping that they'd be able to solve this for me and they did! The camera sits on the tripod in a very stable manner so that I do not have to be concerned for the safety of the equipment or what might happen on stage. Thank you!
