The Xlite Heavy Duty Tilt Bracket is a sturdy, well thought out piece of grip equipment that allows you to mount a light and umbrella on stands up to 5/8″ diameter. The tilt handle is a ratcheting type that allows you to reposition it as you tighten it down- a very handy feature in restricted spaces.
Two reversible 5/8″ threaded studs are included. One is a female 1/4″-20 to female 3/8″ that can be used as a stand adapter and the other is a male 1/4″-20 to male 3/8″-16 that can be screwed into a flash with a female tap and another 1/4” male – 3/8” male spigot for mounting a studio head. The studs are tightened down with a large sliding T-handle while the swivel tightens onto the stand with a large knob. The Swivel Adaptor’s umbrella receptacle will accept 7mm and 8mm umbrella shafts.
