The Portable Reflector Bracket allows you to mount the Adorama Portable reflectors and any other similar reflectors onto a light stand. It is adjustable to hold Reflectors from 22" to 58" and can be rotated and swiveled for precise positioning.
Instructions for using the Portable Reflector Bracket
Loosen one of the tightening knobs until the two wheels separate. Pull apart one of the wheels so you can insert the telescoping rod through one of the smaller figure "8" holes. After inserting the rod, tighten the knob so the teeth of the two wheels come together again
Mount onto a light stand
Note: The wheels may be locked at any angle and positioned as desired
The two spring loaded clips hold the reflector in place. The rod between the clips may be adjusted to accommodate different size reflectors from 22" to 58".

Good and sturdy, but awkward/cumbersome
For the price, it does the job: holds a reflector where you want it, and it has enough adjustability to get it most anywhere you want it. On the down side, the mechanics of it are very crude, and it can be very awkward to make changes to the position.

It is cumbersome and difficult to use. I'm afraid of breaking the knobs by tightening them too much because of the thin plastic. I very much dislike how there are only instructions online and no pictures to guide you through proper setup, it was very annoying. And it doesn't attach properly to my Adorama light stand no matter how many ways I try it. And when I called customer service to help me figure out why it wasn't fitting with another Adorama product they were no help at all.

Fits standard light stand with no issue. Would give 5 stars but most connectors are polymer so I don't know how well it will hold up over the long haul. I needed this larger size for my largest reflectors. Works as advertised and will buy another when needed. My large or small reflectors are held securely and positions okay for me. My main uses for the arm are as a holder for side reflector and bottom part of clam shell lighting with a speedlight.
after unboxing the item i already noticed the item is sort of used. has scratch marks and doesnt look new at all. i immediately assemble the bracket with the 5 in 1 reflector. I was very disappointed after watching the video and trying everything in every way to lock in the bracket to its holes. the holes that are figure of "8" was too big for the bracket. i have an engagement shoot this coming weekend and i need the extra hand for the reflector. NO! will not recommend to a friend at all
The reflector brackett functions perfectly. The telescoping arm accommodates diffusing or reflecting screens larger than 22". I do recommend a strudy stand with sandbags if operating outside. Functions great as an indoor aid as well.
This is an extremely handy little device, especially for one who is working without an assistant. My only complaint is that there were no instructions included and for someone like me, who is not especially good at putting things together, it took some head scratching. The included bracket, while very durable, includes several sizes, I suppose, to accomodate different size rods, & it took some time to figure out the correct combination.
Useful accessory when additional light is needed. Can hold any size reflector. Product is easy to use and appears to be well made. Will attach to any 5/8" light stand. Swivels for virtually any position. Packs small enough for a traveling bag.
I needed a reflector bracket for occasional use and did not need to spend a lot of money.
WAS HARD TO FIGURE OUT AND WORK, NOT EASY TO TAKE ON LOCATION TO CARRY, BUT GREAT FOR WHAT IT IS MEANT FOR AND THAT IS HOLDING A REFLECTOR...DESIGN IS A LITTLE FLIMSY
hard to beat for the price.
Obvious use for macro shooters. For those in landscape photography (not vistas) , this will add needed light onto a foreground object (rock, bush...) that needs some attention paid to it. Could work on a child or pet sitting in front of a busier background with or without shallow DOF. Buy only on sale. Bring your pocket needle-nose pliers with you.
The holder is a little too heavy with a large reflector to balance on a light stand. I really need 1 or 2 sandbags to stabilize it. It is inexpensive and functional so its a good buy.
