These light stand mounts are great - inexpensive, mount to standard light stands, have an umbrella holder. With a good reflective umbrella and a compact fluorescent bulb you get a really good soft light setup for the low budget filmmaker. I already had two of these and love them, got two more for backup. I would recommend NOT using incandescent bulbs - these things are plastic and the heat from the bulb might damage them. But the big CFLs work great for me. Look for the new style large CFLs that provide equivalent of 150 to 300 watt incandescent.

This works well when paired with a PBL FLUORESCENT 85 WATT 5100K DAYLIGHT BULB by PBL for providing a nice source for constant light. This can be preferred to using a flash, for example, when photographing children or some pets. It also provides much better results than a flash when shooting video :*) .

It's very reasonably priced, sits nicely on your light stand, holds an umbrella securely, and comes with a nice long cord and convenient switch.

For the price, it's worth having one on hand for when you need light and your flash decides to stop working. Or, like I suggested above, as a low cost way for converting your portrait setup to something which allows you to light a video.

The old saying is true. You get what you pay for. This thing worked for a couple of uses and then fell apart. It never really worked great either. The light socket did not hold the bulb properly so the light would go on and off.

I've experience two serious failures with this product. The set screw at the lower interface uses a recessed hex nut to secure itself to the product. This has popped loose. This is a nuisance fault but does make it difficult to secure the product to a light stand.

Additionally the metal threaded insert in the light socket has come loose. This part provides both the electrical and structural interfaces between the unit and the light. This failure has rendered the device inoperable.

It's clear to me (an engineer) that the design & manufacture of this item indicates poor understanding of metal-plastic bonding techniques.

Save your money.

For a simple, quick lighting solution these things are great. After reading other's comments I was concerned about the insides rotating out when you try to unscrew a bulb but I have has no trouble like that at all. In fact, looking at the design I can't even see how that would happen. I suppose if you turn the bulb down so tight that you break the inside loose while tightening you could do this and then when you back it out it would no longer be fixed in place. But that's about the only way I can see someone doing this. It's obvious that they aren't designed for daily use in a working studio. They are for occasional use and for the money I think you can't go wrong.

The holder is terrible, it doesn't fit the standard 5/6" lightstand. I even have a set of their own cowboystudio light stands and it didn't fit them!

when I contacted cowboystudio they confirmed the error but did nothing to fix it, also it took me 3-4 weeks just to get a hold of them. The support email they list doesn't work, i called and called and never got an answer.

I was finally able to reach them via facebook, where they gave me a different email that's not listed on their website.

Even then they wouldn't stand behind their product, they told me to take it up with amazon. Well amazon doesn't make these, you guys do, they have your name on them.

NEVER buying cowboystudio ever again, they don't stand behind their products and they're not even compatible with each other.

Great socket for most any regular or photo light, this product allows you to have a light for filming anywhere, easy to mount on a light stand. You may also attach a photo umbrella. Great On and Off switch. Great as a back up lighting system when you need it.

For the price, I expected garbage, but instead I got a fairly well thought out little socket. It has enough threads to safely hold a 85 watt CFL (compact, yeah right...) and the cord is long enough for most uses. I like that the bottom of the stand where the light stand attaches is shaped specifically for that purpose. This means the light stays in one position and doesn't turn or swivel at the top of the stand, nor does it tip in one direction or another (I'm looking at you, Studiohut Double AC Flash Light Stand) with an umbrella attached. I bought two, just in case one didn't work, but they both work fine and now I have an extra!
