The ProMaster 1/4″-20 Cold Shoe Mount 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 cold shoe mount to a tripod, light stand, studio clamp with spigot, and more. A stainless-steel 1/4″-20 bolt is included with the 6856 cold shoe mount 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 ProMaster 1/4″-20 Cold Shoe Mount is machined from high-grade aluminum making it quite strong and durable yet very lightweight.
