I always keep one of these and several similar items in my gear bag because you never know what situation might arise, especially when you are stating out with a new rig its much easier to figure out the best setup when you have some cheap connectors/adapters on hand.

Though in terms of 1/4 to 3/8ths adapters I find the smaller "insert" kinds to be a cleaner solution.

I really didn't like how hard it was to get off whatever i was connecting it to. I would love to see it be a hex shape or something else that can be locked onto to loosen. The one time I used it, the screw it was connected to pulled out of it's connector when loosening it.

Comments about Impact Female 1/4"-20 to Male 3/8" Thread Adapter:

I have an articulating arm w/clamp used to attach a field monitor to my camera setup. I will clamp the arm to the tripod (Manfrotto) and then screw the monitor to the arm. In clamping the arm to the tripod I am always concerned that I will tighten it to much and bend one of the tubes of the tripod leg. Then I notice a screw hole on the base of the tripod. I began looking on B&H's website for an adapter to fit the articulating arm (minus the clamp). Yahoo, there it was and works like a charm.

          I have an adjustable clamp arm that connects to a handheld TASCAM recorder (1/4"-20, standard tripod mount), and I also wanted to connect this adjustable arm to a Behringer microphone mount (3/8"-16). Thought I could find this in a local home improvement store, but no luck. This adapter works perfectly.

                    I bought this for a Rode Video Microphone. In addition to a cold shoe attachment, it has a hole for a tripod mount, but it is the larger hole than is found on most tripods. After buying the wrong adapter multiple times, I called B&H and finally bought this. It works great!

                        You never know when you're gonna need a little piece like this. Very strong and sturdy, can stand up to a lot of weight and doesn't strip or distort when tightening or loosening (even with a pliers). Great little guy that will always have a home in my camera bag.

                        Purchased this for my Rode Mic to put on a monopod. Has held up well. Much heavier than I thought (solid) so it probably will never strip. Not much more I can say because its simple but its great. Sometimes this gets stuck on the mic but its easy enough to get out.
