Good little unit for the budget-conscious photog.
It does pretty much what it says it's supposed to.
The mistake I made was in thinking the tripod thread could be removed and that this bracket could be mounted on a standard 5/8 spigot light stand.
It can't. This is only for tripod thread mounting.
Also, when it's all screwed together snugly, direction of the flash shoe is not on the same axis as the umbrella, which means you either have to fiddle with the way the shoe is connected, or have a flash that swivels.
The thread adapter (steps you down from 5/8 to 1/4 - I think that's what the measurements are, the imperial system is so quaint) seems to be made from a lighter grade metal than the rest of the unit.
Cheap and effective but make sure it's the mount you need.
