Cold shoe adapters have seemingly been around forever but enlight photo decided to take a hard look at the design to rethink and enhance it to its maximum potential with the frio Universal Locking Cold Shoe V2. First they reduced the weight by using a strong polymer. That solved inadvertent flash firing from metal on metal shorting as well.

The frio's patented DualLock system ensures that your valuable equipment is securely mounted. The patented DualThread receiver on the bottom of the frio accepts both 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 stand and accessory screws. There's a lanyard tip to hang your radio receiver from, too. The frio is compatible with most standard flash hot shoes on the market including Nikon's SB-900.

Features
  • Mount anything with a hotshoe; your flash, light panel or hot shoe mic to any tripod and many light stands
  • Features a universal standard 1/4"-20 / 3/8"-16 thread
  • Patent-pending DualLock security
  • Whatever you fit to your frio stays put and comes off in an instant when you're done
  • Safe and secure SlipNClick technology confirms that you're securely mounted
  • Universal locking pin cavity so your flash's lock works too
  • Compact and lightweight, it takes up negligible space in your bag
  • Handy lanyard point to hang your radio slaves or any other accessory with a lanyard
  • UPC: 898159002903

    Frio Universal Locking Cold Shoe V2 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secure I've used a few other cold shoes and this is the most secure out of any of them! It is small BUT it is solid and doesn't flex at all. I use this to attach my off camera flash on a stand. With the lock and my flash's own lock I am very confident that my flash will not fall off (like it has done before with the tighten down type). A very great feature is that you can use this on 1/4 20 screws/spigots or on 3/8 16 screws/spigots. There is a small adaptor that allows for this great simple convience. Be assured this is probably the best cold shoe out there. Plus, where it is non-conductive, there is no chance to short out your flash!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good cold shoe This is a good quality cold shoe; however, it has a EXTREMELY snug fit when paired with the 600ex-rt. The fit was so snug that it made me uncomfortable sliding my 600ex-rt in and out of the cold shoe because I feared stripping the hotshoe pins of the flash. Overall, the cold shoe is secure; however, I think there might be a compatibility issue with the 600ex because of the weather sealing.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, but not durable This is a great product for consumers but I can't recommend it for professional use. I had one of these as a quick connect for one of my light stands for wedding photography. When the light stand got blown over from about 7 feet up. The 320EX flash on it hit the ground and worked just fine with some scratches, but the small pieces of plastic which the flash holds on to on the mount ripped out completely. This was the only point of failure that prevented me from being able to continue using the flash stand. If you will be using this in a professional capacity, either get an extra one or just spend the extra money to get a metal alternative that will hold up better to accidents.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a snug fit Either I'm missing something obvious on this cold shoe or it just doesn't work for what I'm looking for... My purpose for buying this was to *firmly* attach an ETTL cord connector to it -- thus securing my flash to a lightstand, monopod, etc. When I slide the connector into the Frio shoe, the connector is not big enough lengthwise to fill up the area for it on the Frio shoe -- it continually slides back and forth. It won't come loose because of the Frio locking mechanism, but it is not firmly secure. There is no pin or locking capability on that end of the ETTL cord, so there is no other way to secure the connector in the shoe without using a rolled up piece of tape or some other way to fill up the space.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recommended (Sort of but hear me out) This is a great cold shoe. Strong plastic that is meant to break away if the stand falls, I like that kind of forward thinking. The thread is metal with two sizes which was a nice touch. The locking system for a flash means you have to hold down a plastic button to let the flash out and combined with the flash's own lock, you have a strong set up. Only annoyance was when using Canon's new speedlights, they have a large rubber hood around the foot, so locking the speedlight onto the Frio means the stiff rubber foot is squished and may cause some issues in the future... But for now, my Canon flashes are very secure, but the ruber hood may develop some scratches or bend damage overtime. Not a huge issue but something to think about when using it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It doesnt work for me Horrible product. At least for me. I have nikon gear. I use Yongnuo 622 radios and it doesn't fit the hot shoe on the frio cold shoe. I had to put a piece of a card so can fit the cold shoe. But that was not the end! One of this product broke (see the pic) and my flash went to the floor. No, I do not recommend and I don't rely.Im a wedding photographer. All the weddings are a knight in dark places and I use flash almost alawsy.s

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not for Canon 600exRT It's great for flashes other than Canon's water-sealed ones.
    Date published: 2013-12-16
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to Like It But Not Now I used to like it but not now. Reason being that the plastic slots that hold my metal flash foot sown not the Frio broke off and then my flash dumped and hit the ground. There was no good reason for the slots to break off, no stress on them at the time. Still looking for a better choice, have had problems with other brands as well. But a good quality OEM flash costs a lot of $ – not worth taking a chance on is as far as I'm concerned. �Wish it were different.
