Nikon SB 900 is a tight fit
The Nikon SB 900 does not fit comfortably on the cold shoe of the 175f. I think it's going to break the housing when I try to "jam" the flash on to it.

Thanks to Joe McNally and Justin Staley for coming up with this ridiculous invention, which, if you're doing flash photography in a space where you can't use a lightstand you just gotta have. It'll go on a lightstand, it'll go on a tripod, and if it can't go on one of those it can go just about anywhere. Don't leave your studio without at least one.
This cold shoe flash clamp is a quality product. I am always concerned about my expensive flash units on other flash mount devices. This device is secure, flexible, rugged and worth the money.
This Clamp is an additional Hand in almost every Case. let it hold a Flash, a Background or whatever. Put it on a Fence, a Stand a Boom you Name it. i wished it in different Sizes, but that's all
Works great for clamping onto just about anything - curtains, stair rails, light stands (clamp to side when second-shooting, or mount to top). Only downside is the cold-shoe. It's not at all secure (at least with my SB900/910 or PW FlexTT5)... I modify all of mine with a standard (cheap) shoe mount and some 1/4 20 thread. Works like a charm.
Conventional flash / umbrella adapters mounted my flash - shoe mount trigger combo too high. I just clamp this to the stand below the umbrella mount and it brings the flash head even with the center of the umbrella.
I have 10 of these clamps. They are my go-to piece of equipment when designing lighting for both photo and video shoots
I often photograph people in locations (e.g. bars, restaurants, shops) that may not accommodate a light stand, but I can always find places to use these to position flash heads. They also let me "make" booms from things that most places have -- like a broom. Lately, I use them more than stands.
I use the Justin clamp with my SB-800 and 910's and absolutely love it. My only complaint is that while the SB-800 fits nice and snug, the 910 seems loose and can fall out of the hot shoe even after locked. It happened to me yesterday while on a shoot and the flash fell 4 feet to the ground, breaking the diffuser dome.
Fast way to hold wireless remote flash unit
This is an excellent addition to your off-camera flash gear. A very sturdy clamp with a great cold shoe... holds your flash secure and mounts almost anywhere. Has rubber "feet" on the clamp side, so works well as a sturdy flash stand, and also holds tight when you clamp to a door, railing, rod or whatever is handy. Also has stud to mount on a flash stand. Definitely recommend this. Trying to justify a second one because they are so handy...
