The ProMaster 6856 allows you to mount a speedlight, on-camera LED light, microphone, and other hot or cold shoe type accessories in a variety of places. It has a common 1/4"-20 threaded tripod port in its base. This lets you connect the 6856 to a tripod, light stand, studio clamp with spigot, and more. A stainless-steel 1/4"-20 bolt is included with the 6856 for more mounting options to products like the ProMaster 3839 Complete-L grip. Finally, a hex wrench for use with the bolt is also included.
The 6856 is machined from high-grade aluminum making it quite strong and durable yet very lightweight.
