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.
