The Universal Accessory Shoe Mount from Vello is a convenient and adjustable cold-shoe mount. Small and useful - this shoe provides a secure mounting option for virtually any type of shoe-mounted device - radio slaves, speedlights, light meters, etc.

Belying its true capabilities, this seemingly innocuous accessory part will lie harmlessly at the bottom of your gear bag, or in the corner of a parts box. It won't take up much room, nor will it weigh you down. Remaining nearly invisible amongst a cornucopia of accumulated photographic gadgetry, this clever shoe is just waiting for an opportunity to spring into action and save the day. By providing a simple yet effective mounting solution in the blink of an eye - this pint-sized gizmo is worth its weight in gold.

Constructed from durable aluminum bar-stock, and finished with a discreet semi-matte black anodized coating - the Universal Shoe Mount is a reliable covert interface between your shoe-mounted device and the intended mounting platform.

The bottom plate is machined flat with a relief cut to ensure strength and a secure fit to almost any flat surface. The mounting hole features the ubiquitous 1/4"-20 thread that's so commonly and conveniently found on photographic equipment. An oversized knurled plastic knob that can be visualized with ease in less than ideal lighting conditions graces the side of this fine mounting solution - turning it adjusts the spring-tensioned side-piece to accommodate various sized shoes and mounts.

Standard 1/4"-20 mounting thread
Accepts a variety of shoe-mounted accessories
Spring-tensioned adjustment allows one-handed use
Durable extruded aluminum alloy construction with discreet anodized finish
Attaches quickly and easily to flash brackets, tripods, light stands, super-clamps, etc

    Universal Accessory Shoe Mount is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 93.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Good As I Could Hope I'm using two of these clamps with Giottos mini ballheads to support an SB-800 and SB-600 for closeup work. The clamps hold perfectly well. The only caveat would be the plastic knob. No biggie, though; I can afford to replace it at this price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works, but use two hands! We got this as an alternative to metal shoe mounts that we had that kept firing speedlights and as an alternative to the cheap-o ones that come with canon speedlights. Works as needed, doesn't prematurely fire, and is secure. However when you loosen the screw your flash will immediately fall out - gravity won't keep it there temporarily. Other versions have two fixed walls and stay secure with the screw itself. On this unit, the left wall moves with the screw, so the speedlight won't stay there until you tighten. In other words, you need to hold it in place as you tighten. Could be useful for mounting non-standard accessories. Didn't drop anything, but always have to warn assistants.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Mount I have four of these mounts attached to Manfrotto 5001B Nano Black Light Stands, which I use for teaching at the local community college and camera store as well as portrait photography sessions. The design of this mount insures no problems of shorting the contacts on your flash, while threaded mounting points permit secure mounting to your umbrella stand or other device you wish to mount your flash on. Adjustable gripping provides secure grasp of the flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Secure than other cold shoe mounts I like this thing. I have other cold shoe mounts that are plastic with a tab for locking the flash in place (think small, blue, and cold in spanish). They don't give the same level of security this shoe mount does. With this mount, I definitely have peace of mind when putting my speedlight on a 10 ft light stand with my assistant moving it around chasing a moving bride. Something else will have to break before this thing lets loose. Overall, there is no need to buy a more expensive brand, the Vello product is sufficient and meets most anyones need.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love this little guy! I use this accessory to mount my extra microphone to a homemade boom pole. The mount is reasonably priced which made it the perfect finishing touch to my DIY boom pole build. I would recommend every Independent/DIY filmmaker have at least one of these in their kit... you never know when something like this will come in handy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This unit so far is the best, it holds on to my broken base This unit so far is the best, it holds on to my broken base of my Rodes shot gun mike. the other two, will work, when I can get the broken base replaced. The suggest replacement didn't work so far. Had to goto the hardware store, to make the above work with my Sunpack stabilizer base, It is a shame Sunpack, doesn't sell replace parts, for vibration etc. will make to come loose when you are least expected it. The same problem with the above, will have to get some lock tight and make the replacement permanent. .

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good cold shoe. This cold shoe, unlike others I own, did not have a notch to prevent it from spinning around. In my case, I switched with another accessory shoe I owned and things worked out well. Others purchasing this may want to consider the lock version, depending upon their specific use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great screwed it to the top of my DSLR cage with a 1/4 by 20 by 5/8 inch thumb screw from the hardware store. Mic mount fits nicely into the shoe and the adjusting screw is a bit of genius.
