While the VML Bracket can be attached to a light stand using the two velcro cinch straps (included), it was designed to be used in conjunction with a Manfrotto Super Clamp (or similar) as pictured here.
Light Stand Attachment Close-Up
A closer view of how the VML Bracket attaches to any standard light stand using a Manfrotto Super Clamp (not included) or similar clamp.
Three cutouts on the bottom of the VML Bracket accommodate the battery release tab as well as the two air vents on the bottom of the Vagabond Mini Lithium battery pack.
VML & VML Bracket
A side by side view of the VML Bracket next to the Vagabond Mini Lithium battery pack. As you can see, the VML Bracket was designed to be as low-profile as possible thereby making it more aesthetically pleasing when mounted on a light stand.
Super Clamp Close-Up
The VML Bracket with an attached Manfrotto Super Clamp (not included). Note the unique design of the clamp slot in the back of the VML Bracket which eliminates movement of the Super Clamp as well as allows increased air flow and better cooling of the Vagabond Mini Lithium battery pack.
Powder Coated Finish
The VML Bracket is Powder Coated with a C241 black textured finish to resist years of abuse and handling. We also include with every VML Bracket a precision machined knurled stainless steel thumb screw used to attach the VML to the VML Bracket.
Every VML Bracket comes with everything you need to attach it to any light stand (with or w/o a Super Clamp): (1) Velcro Cinch Straps, (1) 5/32 Hex Wrench, (1) 1/8 Hex Wrench, (1) Stainless Steel Knurled Thumb Screw, (2) 10-32 x 1/2″ Screws, and (1) 1/4-20 x 3/8″ Screw.
Super Clamp Stud Screw Close-Up
Security is a cornerstone of the VML Bracket design. That’s why we added a tab on the side of the VML Bracket that allows for the stud security screw of the Super Clamp to be used as an additional attachment point to the VML Bracket.
VML Bracket with PCB Stand
The VML Bracket works with every light stand on the market. Here it is pictured with a standard Paul C. Buff 10ft Light Stand, an AB800, and a Mola Demi beauty dish.
Mounted At The Base
While some photographers prefer to mount the VML Bracket up closer to their strobe (and use a shorter power cord), the VML Bracket can be mounted anywhere on the light stand. In this photo, it’s mounted at the base of the light stand.
