Kinda does what It's Supposed to. But...
on August 15, 2012
This item must be manufactured without quality assurance controls. I bought this item mainly because I needed to mount a Beachtek DXA-4 field mixer to my shoulder rig, which is made of steel and has mounting holes all around it. I just unscrew the top wheel on the adapter, place the bottom wheel against the underside of the shoulder rig where the hole is, screw the top wheel back on and then screw the mixer on top. Works great. And for this purpose alone I had originally purchased this flash shoe mount adapter. However, when attempting to use it with one of my accessory brackets with the mounting slots, the adapter's square-shaped base is too wide to fit into the mounting slot on the bracket. I would have given this item five stars for it's superior build quality and sturdiness, and ease of use. But for not being able to use it for more than one function, I have to give it three.
