Does what it says on the tin

Comments about Manfrotto MN026 Lite Tite Swivel and Umbrella Adaptor:
I have a large Westcott Apollo softbox and bought this as I didn't trust the traditional umbrella holder for my Bowens light. Very pleased so far, easy to set up, adjust, and keeps the softbox steady preventing the light stand from tipping over.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I can kick myself for not getting these in the first place. These are reliable and easy to work, I never worry if they can hold the loads I put on them.

I use this product for artificial, and strobe lighting, to mount my flash triggers and flash guns. I originally purchased one tilt and swivel, but after a week of use I liked it so much I purchased a second. The Manfrotto MN026 swivel and umbrella adaptor is extremely easy to set up and use, it is also very robust. All thread and screw parts are metal, the only plastic part is the thumb screw top for the umbrella mount. Pity it's not metal. Still it would not put me off buying a third.

Solid construction and easy operation.
Solid construction and easy to tighten in place. The umbrella holder accepts various diameters and doesn't limit my choice of umbrella brand. The large black handle used to tighten the tilt head also pulls outwards allowing it to be repositioned easily so it doesn't get in the way of whatever you have mounted on top.Having two or more in a kit bag and you start to notice the weight.
Hefty but very sturdy. I use it on quite a cheap light stand but I wouldn't say it makes it unstable. The locking is perfect, no chance of slip or twist. I'm sure it will last a lifetime and probably take a few knocks if it has to and come out unscathed.Overall great product, strong and reliable.
Right piece of kit for the job
I made the newbie mistake of buying cheaper umbrella brackets before settling on this one.... Will I ever learn? When combined with the "Interfit Strobies Adjustable Shoe Mount" this becomes one of those buy-once-for-life items. Superb build quality which securely holds your flash in any position with confidence. Most importantly the tilt mechanism doesn't have teeth, so it allows much greater accuracy for focusing than cheaper models will do. Only downside is it's a bit heavy. (Particularly if you have a few in your bag). But that's a price worth paying in my book for a decent bit of kit.
Great build, fast and easy to use
Quite heavy, solid metal build. The umbrella shaft hole is nice and large, and fastens quickly. It's easy to tilt the umbrella and lock it with the level. It's very sturdy ans I have no worries attaching my flash to it.
Simply the best

Purchased one of these and came back for more, simply the best swivel adaptor on the market in my opinion
Good solid holder
I bought a cheaper version which broke quickly. This is solid and should last for years - worth the money
well made & simple to use
the adapter is very well made compared to cheap ones, and should last a life time
