Great piece of hardware

I am actually using this on the end of painter's pole to support a camera. This is used in conjuction with a grip head that holds a camera support attched to another grip pin. This allows me to angle the camera up and down without having to put an expensive tripod head on the top of the pole. I was quite surprised at just how light this piece was. In the photo it looks like it would be much heavier. The machining on this part is very high quality. The only drawback is that the pole adapter ...

In the photo it looks like it would be much heavier. The machining on this part is very high quality. The only drawback is that the pole adapter could rotate. To alleviate this, I put a hose clamp with a rubber liner at the junction between the adapter and the pole. I just tighten down the hose clamp and everything gets locked together. This is much easier than having to carry an allen wrench like some other designs.

Not a good soultion

Well, this adapter is made out of Aluminum, which is way too soft for its purpose. If your pole is made out of plastic, this may work, but if you use a heavy duty extension pole with a solid metal threat, this adapter is not working well. In addition, Aluminum is soft. Means if you skrew in your monolight, or whatever you want to mount on this thing, too tight, it leaves deep marks on the material. If this was made of brass or stainless, this would be a 500% better product than it is today. K...

perfect paint pole mount

By

from Austin, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

no negatives on this, nicely machined adapter lets me put flash (and even an umbrella with right adapter) on a paint pole for high / overhead light.

This thing is perfect.

By

Screw this onto a telescoping paint pole and you have an incredibly cost-effective and extremely flexible way to mount speedlights and light shapers. It's very well constructed, I expect it to last longer than my career.

Great product

Definitely get this if you're looking at a more mobile lighting setup. I use this to mount a speedlight and softbox on a painter's pole for outdoor portraits.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Say, for instance, you want to permanently affix this to the recommended Shur-Line painter's pole. What substance would you use? Krazy Glue? Rubber Cement?
Drew B  Wouldn't use crazy glue....thread tolerance is too loose. I would use a common two part epoxy. Mix it up, insert into the Kacey adapter, then screw it onto the pole, wiping off any excess that oozes out.
