If you are trying to make a light stand out of a tripod, this is the right adapter for the job. Also works great with monopods and anything else that uses the standard size threads found on tripods and tripod plates. Not much else to say other than the construction is solid and one side of the middle section has a flat surface that keeps your lights (or whatever) held secure.

Doesn't Hold

I don't like this adapter. It doesn't hold whatever I use it for at the time well. No matter how tight I screw it on, it's still loose

            Not much that can go wrong with this spigot. It is made of solid metal and finished nicely. I have others made from less good material.

                  Used this one to screw it at the top of tripod and mount westcott rapid instead of ballhead (I am not taking lightstands on my travels , but i do take tripod with me all the time). Worked as expected.

                        Not much to say about this. It does what it's supposed to do, and does it well. It's solid, study, and easy to screw into place.

                            Comes in handy when you need it.
                            I use this adapter for my alien bee b400.
                            one end has a 1/4"-20 thread and the other has a 3/8" Female thread so you have your choice of size.
                            Fit's just fine and works just fine for not too expensive of a hit on your wallet.

                            What can you say about this product. It's a pice of bass. It shines nice. It has retained it's shape. Humm, Buy one I did.

                              Comments about Manfrotto 119 Short (16mm) Adapter Spigot with 1/4"-20 & 3/8" Female Threads:

                              I had previously purchased a softbox & speedring adapter and I wanted to mount that on my tripod instead of buy another lightstand. This spigot was exactly what I needed so that I could attach my softbox to the tripod.

                                    This is a well-machined adapter spigot. It has no rough or sharp edges and the screw threads are clean and work well.
