    I don't know what's wrong with me today, but my mind has melted and my google-fu is weak.

    I need to buy an adapter that lets me mount my strobe to a tripod. That's it. I don't need it to have an optical trigger or an x-sync port. I just need a little piece of 30 cent plastic.

    What's it called?

    Thank you, Kundalini, but that's meant for a light stand, not a tripod. And it's far too big/bulky/fancy anyway.

    I need this:

    without the optical trigger built in. You see? All I need is a really simple little chunk of plastic.

    I'm embarrassed at how hard it's been to find what I'm looking for!

    THIS sounds more like what you are looking for...but I'd be more inclined to just get the swivel/umbrella adapter that kundalini posted.

    I like the way that 30 cent piece of plastic is $12.50 :)
