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

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".

Most Liked Positive Review

 

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.

Most Liked Negative Review

 

Terrible...

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.

Great third hand assistant, works cheap

By

from Georgia  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.

bracket holes too big

By

from Williamsport, PA  -  Casual Photographer

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

Reflector bracket

By

from Temple City, California  -  Photo Enthusiast

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.

Extremely handy item

By

from Montrose, CO  -  Semi-Professional

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.

Convenient accessory

By

from Kennesaw, GA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

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.

Good idea needs better execution

By

from NW Chicagoland  -  Semi-Professional

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.

Reflector holder

By

from Phoenix, AZ  -  Semi-Professional

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.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
KEVIN F  This seemed like a good value. I needed something to hold a reflector and this did the trick.
fern s  i just opened and assemble the item today, was very disappointed the Figure 8 holes are sort of too big. it doesn't hold the bracket firmly. i have a 42" reflector attached to it. the bracket is loose. How do i fix it?
KEVIN F  It fits all of my light stands perfectly fine. If you happen to have some very small diameter stands, then I would suggest using something to fill the gap. You could do this a number of ways. You could wrap electrical or masking tape around the stand, art foam, cardboard, etc. Anything that has a little grip to it.
Charles C  What diameter is the light stand? In other words, what diameter will this bracket fit in the way of poles?
