    Impact CA-101 reviews

    Rapid Baby to 1/4"-20 Male Threaded Adapter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for all Professionals Its a shame most companies that make professional video equipment always leave off one part that makes it work well. This is the fix for one of those. Lights, microphones and almost anything you need to attach to a light stand needs this interface. 1/4 to 5/8s. I have about 20 of these on everything from LED lights to my shotgun microphones. This is a top notch adapter don't hesitate if you need this interface.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly Made. Poor Quality I got two of these for my light stand to hold the off camera flashes. One fit with difficulty, but the other would not go on. It was too small. Unable to return since the return postage was costing more than the item. Got a different brand which works great

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Extra to Have! I got this to mount a light or other small items to a boom arm on and Impact stand. Only problem was securing it to the 3/8 stud on the arm or securing it to a stud or post smaller than 5/8. It will not mount straight and secure correctly. Luckily I sell electric motors and have shaft bushing adapters available. I made my own adapter to secure on a 3/8 post by using a 3/8 to 1/2 inside a 1/2 to 5/8 bushing. Mounts perfectly now. B&H you need to make some bushings available to people who may need them!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found a new use! Odyssey 7Q Adapter I found a new use for this item. I use it to allow my Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q to have a 1/4 20 screw on the bottom (it normally has it on the back only. This adapter screws into the back of the odyssey, and where that knob is I use a 1/4 20 noga arm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is was it is and it does it well Nice metal construction of an item that sometimes can be rendered in cheap plastic. This is good to mount LED lights with 1/4 threads onto lighting stands. Nothing more to be said. A cheap, well-constructed item to add to your kit. Buy two or three.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit Needed to put together a small virtual set for one of our high school installations. Using this item along with the Reflectmedia pop up background and lite-ring has yielded some of the best looking chroma-key work I've ever done.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job well Build quality is good for the price. Essential for me to mount my lights on my light stand. Does the job as expected. I wish there was some kind of gear at top to tighten down whatever you've screwed into it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great solution I wanted to attach a light with 1/4 threading to a 3/8 pipe, and this worked. This is made to fit onto a 5/8 pipe, but it tightened enough to securely fit onto a 3/8 pipe. I am so glad I bought this.
