It has a good price, a solid feel, and a few minor issues
There are several different models listed on one product page so I think confusion might result because there are several different materials used for these brackets. These D mounts are made of aluminum alloy, and Cowboy Studio claims they are made by them. Solid and heavy, it has a solid feel. One of two I purchased had a loose screw where the umbrella hole screws into the upper plate, so I was going to give it five stars, but when I realized this, I lowered my rating to four back when I realized I had loose screws on one of the two. In order to fix my issue, I contacted CS, and they directed me to disassemble and tighten the screws, or to A few screws need tightening, so I decided to try it I was surprised when I took the top plate apart and saw the holes in the top plate were wrongly threaded. As a result of a bit of achy work with a Phillips screwdriver, I got the board tightened up and assembled. Although it will probably be fine, I dinged it a star due to quality control issues. The device will be able to tilt vertically as well as swivel horizontally. A spring ensures a secure mounting of the mounting post Make sure the catch is loaded so that it doesn't fall It is also this feature that lets you loosen the post to rotate the bracket without it coming off the stand. The knob for adjusting the vertical angle is large and easy to use, and the bracket is securely fastened. Under the ice shoe, there is a thumbwheel that you can use to adjust the angle of the shoe in relation to the umbrella if necessary While tightened, turn the thumbwheel in the correct direction so that the shoe points in the right direction. It is a little hard to get the flash inserted precisely in the cold shoe, so be careful about doing It seems to be a great value in the end.
