How long is this?
Asked by: John
without going to get it. I can say is is around a quarter inch long or thereabouts. If you need it shorter, thread it on a 1/4 inch thread and use a flat file to take it down.

question

How sturdy are these bushings? I want to use this on a quick-release adapter that only has 3/8 on the center hole, but uncertain if this will be weaker than connecting to a native 1/4 hole (but which is off-center).

question

I have been trying for a year now to get this adapter to permanently stay on my tripod- I've tried all kinds of glue, the adapter will stay on for a little while, then it will unscrew inside either my slider or tripod head and when it does that so that it is no longer attached to my tripod legs. Any suggestions on what to use to get it to permanantly stay on the 3/8 -16 thread?
Asked by: Ashley
Use Locktite permanent thread locking compound. It is mot costly and is a liwuid that currs on about a day. Just google it to find a place to pirchade it.Stuart

question

Does this thread adapter have a lip or wider top diameter that stops it from screwing in, or will it get lost in a female thread if it screws down too far?
Asked by: george
This thread adapter has a wider top to stop it at a certain distance. If you thread this too much you can still remove by placing a screw in the openings of the top diameter.

question

I would like to use this Oben reducer bushing for my QR plate and wonder how tall is it in millimeter?
Asked by: Anonymous
My answer may be invalid. Is the Oben reducer a brass reducer? Ask B&H is it brass color, not silver. I think I ordered two different reducers from B&H. I pulled out the reducer I used, and it is brass and measures 7.5mm using a caliper. Hope this helps.

question

Why is this called a reducer? It looks like it increases the size from 1/4 to 3/8. I have a SLIK 300DX with a 1/4 screw to mount the head. I want to mount a gimbal that requires 3/8 screw. Will this work or is there another product?
Asked by: Paul
Just the opposite this is what you need
