An Adapter to Make any Paint Pole or Broom Handle a Light Stand

Chuck Vosburgh - Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Here's another one of those "I wish I had invented this" items. It's simple and solves a big problem for photographers who travel. Most of my assignments involve travel, and it's very inconvenient to travel with light stands by air. Stands small enough to get by as carry-on are too short and flimsy, and suitable stands have to be in a case and checked.That's where the Kacey Pole Adapter comes in. It converts any painting extension pole or threaded broom handle to be able to accent a standard photographic light. That and an assistant, some bungee cords or some tape and you have a light stand that you can find anywhere. Genius.

It's made of aluminum, small, incredibly light and very nicely made. I'll be ordering more for sure.

They're about $20. Here's a link to their web site click here. I got mine at Flash Zebra.
