I wanted to add another connection to my strobe arms, so I can add either a video light or a focus light, to my dual arm setup.

The pictures are for an Oceanbrite arm setup, which is no longer made, but I feel the solution should work for any ball socket connector.

I used a strobe connector with a flat portion like used on Sea & Sea strobes that has a 1/4 inch diameter hole, which luckily is the same as the bolt that holds the socket together. If your bolt is not long enough, it is a simple solution to purchase a longer stainless steel bolt.

The pictures tell the whole story.
