Simple, easy to use, and I wonder why more companies don't make things like this. All you need is a sync cord and you can fire three flashes with a single receiver. I put this at the end of a monopod to make a light stick in a shoot recently, and if you have an assistant that knows how to light (or follow instructions), you can move fast fast fast. Anyone shooting weddings or events can get a lot of mileage with one of these. Will likely order another.

Flimsy, poorly made hotshoes

One of the side hotshoes had its left rail elevated, so the speedlight wouldn’t go in. I had to press heavily on it to contort it back into place.Read complete review

One of the side hotshoes had its left rail elevated, so the speedlight wouldn’t go in. I had to press heavily on it to contort it back into place.

When dismounting a Yongnuo speedlight, it suddenly went into feedback cycle and started flashing with no pauses. Apparently, each flash somehow triggered another one via the hot shoe adapter contacts. That has never happened without this Impact adapter mount. Make sure to turn off your speedlights before mounting or dismounting them.

Thread mount won't hold up

Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

It's a great idea but made very cheap. The metal thread mount is housed in plastic and will not hold up.

Works - but has an issue with my SB-700

By David

Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

I bought this gizmo to mount multiple flashes inside an Apollo softbox.  I've used it with two speedlights and it holds them fine. I put a trigger on the third shoe (Godox X1 Trigger)  

I did find it very curious that it would not fire my SB-700 in TTL mode.  In M the Godox Trigger could trigger the flash but not in TTL (which Godox needs to control the power of the flash).  Most curiously an SB-600 and Metz 58 both worked fine in TTL, in all of the hot shoes.  Tried the SB-700 on the top of the Godox trigger while it was on the FA-300HS and there it worked.   An oddity that if I only had SB-700's would be a deal breaker but I can work around that.  The other very pleasant surprise is that it fired an old Vivitar Auto-Thyristor 2800-D - which isn't compatible with my Nikon gear (M-P-O model).  But on this gizmo I can fire it.  I'll keep it.  Maybe someone can tell me what's up with the SB-700??   Never had a problem with it.

Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

I picked this up as a very small and very replaceable (due to cost) triple-flash adapter. It works, and fires three flashes at once with use of only one radio trigger + a sync cable. So that's good. Will it last forever? I doubt it - construction is mostly plastic and putting three flashes on this thing does indeed make me a bit nervous. But it's a small and lightweight accessory that works for me for now, and solves a problem. Good enough. Will likely upgrade to a more substantial multi-flash bracket later on.

        Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

        I was looking for a flash mount that I could use in a variety of ways and this one is just perfect. It's stable and works well on my light stands, on my umbrella mount and on my tripod. I can fire multiple flashes at one time or have more flexibility of how I place that one flash. The price was right and so far I'm very pleased with the product.

        I use it with 3 Nikon sb-800's and it works perfectly. I also added a wireless trigger to set all three off to free up a couple triggers.

                  Comments about Impact FA-300HS Triple-Flash Hot Shoe Adapter Mount:

                  I just needed something to help combine my speedlights without having to use another system of lights, ie Alienbees, etc on location. I also didn't want to have a receiver on each hotshoe to trigger the flashes.

                  This simply gets the job done. I can trigger all 3 flashes with on receiver and now I have plenty of flash power.
                  Be careful when attaching the PC cord. One of my triggers wouldn't work, but a newer trigger worked well, however, the speedlights didn't like me messing with the PC cords while the speedlights were on, so I hope I don't blow anything up.
