  • Excerpt: This is the 2nd 026 swivel umbrella adapter that I own. They are extremely well built. I use them to attach to my Impact - Air-Cushioned Heavy Duty light stands and then attach my flash on top of that, I don't leave home without them.

Best in class

  • Excerpt: This swivel adapter by manfrotto is best in class. This design is classic, but the specific brand/model is the best one I have encountered yet. This tool is great to slap on the end of your stand and create tilt/swivel capability for your light and its modifier.
  • Pros: Attaches Securely, Durable, Lightweight, Long-Lasting

These do not break.

  • Excerpt: This aluminum swivel bracket seems to have been around forever. There is a good reason that it is still made and available. It lasts. I have gone the cheap route a couple of times through the years only to realize once again that cost should never be confused with price. The initial price of the "Lite- Tite" is about 30% higher than it's plastic competitors but it's value in the long run is much greater. It is versatile, strong, dependable and well machined.

A necessary item for artificial light

  • Excerpt: Having used plastic swivel adapters in the past, I know first hand that they can snap and break, especially after years of use. Like all things Manfrotto, this swivel adapter is built to last. Its sturdy design and solid parts are meant to last a lifetime. A must for any photographer attaching artificial lighting to a lightstand.

A welcomed upgrade...

  • Excerpt: I purchased an Impact LiteTrek Monolight kit and a 7ft parabolic umbrella to add to my portable lighting system. They worked well together (the reflector should be removed to adequately fill the umbrella) but my cheap light stands were a different story as they tend to bend under their weight when there is a light wind. I later invested in an Avenger C-Stand A2030D Kit and decided to purchase a durable Umbrella adapter as well.
  • Pros: Durable, Solid

Can't Miss with Manfrotto.

  • Excerpt: These are not cheap or light but if you need a durable, no-nonsense bracket to mount one or multiple flash guns, umbrella, softbox or just about anything else you'd put on a light stand, you can't beat this metal Manfrotto unit. I use several of them and love the crank lever that can be rotated out of the way after it's tight.
