RPS Lighting RS-3118 reviews

Locking Accessory Shoe is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best cold shoe I have tried to date I've tried so many cold shoe adapters over the years I've lost count, and so many of them have ultimately ended up dropping my flashes, especially the metal ones with a screw that come included with many umbrella adapters. This is the first cold shoe I have tried that has never dropped one of my flashes, the combination of the build in spring lock release along with tightening the flashes down means everything is held securely, and the standard 1/4" 20 screw thread in the bottom means I can attach it to any of my stands or umbrella adapters. Highly recommended

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not perfect, not horrible. Works well with some speedlights but not perfectly with others: speedlights with perfectly flat shoe mounts click into place nicely - but if the metal of the shoe mount curves on the rear of the mount, like on the Nikon SB-600, the connection never clicks into place and is thus never secure. Not perfect, not horrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the other cold shoes. The RPS Lighting Locking Accessory Shoe (cold shoe) has a lot of names on the packaging. The shoe itself is stamped NiceFoto. The package has a brand name dlc and model number RS-3118, on the back of the package: Marketed by Dot Line Corp, but sold on B&H by RPS Lighting. I'm saying all this because I'm trying to place an additional order for more of these cold shoes and now I finally found this one again, so I can order more. I have a long bitter history of bad cold shoes. Either they are not really cold (i.e. they short-out the contacts of the flash), or the flash can't get a good grip on the shoe and there are flashes falling to the ground (and ending up in pieces). A couple extra bucks for a good quality cold shoe will save many hundreds of dollars in damaged equipment, and give you the confidence to use your off-camera flash effectively. The RPS/dlc/DotLine RS-3118 Locking Accessory Shoe fits the flash (or PocketWizard) shoe very firmly, and has a very positive secure tab that snaps into place, locking the flash into the shoe. When it comes time to release the flash (or the PocketWizard that protrudes backwards over the locking tab), just press the button on the *side* of this cold shoe and it releases very smoothly. You don't have to directly squeeze the locking tab itself, just press the release button on the side where it's much more easily accessible. It's made of plastic, but feels quite strong. You wouldn't want a cold shoe that wasn't made of plastic, would you? The cold shoe attaches directly to your lightstand or to a mini-ballhead on your lightstand (I recommend Oben BD-0, but there are other mini-ballheads out there) with a 1/4 inch thread and you don't need any tools to screw-in the cold-shoe, just thread it directly onto the 1/4 inch stud. It's simple, fast, secure, easy to put equipment onto and take off-of. Just a great little product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!! Having been through various cold shoes I finally came across this unit. it's perfect for what I need which is to hold the weight of a speed light with a magmod bounce/sphere securely on my Manfrotto pixie mini as I move around the dance floor at weddings. The weight of the flash/modifier is of no concern for the shoe, it's solid, and with the locking mechanism I know there's going to be no accidents. If you need a cold shoe this one is great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Locking Accessory Shoe Is Great Had been looking for a cold shoe for my light stands to hold strobes. Do to the cost of good strobes, I looked a several shoes and then saw the Locking Accessory Shoe by RPS Lighting available at B&H. Purchased the locking shoe and it works great. (be patient, a little tight at first, just put in on and off a few times and it will fit fine.)Finally, no need to worry about my strobes hitting the floor. Lp

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This locking shoe does the job! This shoe looked big and chunky in the picrure , but I ordered it anyway. In reality it's not too big at all. It holds my barebulb flashes, which are heavier and speed lights quite securely. Its easy to remove the flash as will. I ordered 2 of these and will order 3 more. I really enjoy using them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you use OCF, you need this! This is the best gadget I bought for my speedlights. My lights, triggers, and TTL cable snap right in and are very secure. It even has a hole for the locking pin. The release button is easy to press. I never really trusted the clamping cold shoe mounts. This one is awesome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says. Nice little locking shoe. I no longer have to worry about my speed light sliding around. It does feel a little cheap plasticy, but I think it'll be alright.
