Add a thumb screw to your ProdMod Camera Light

It’s not rocket science, but for those of you who prefer running a screw through the body of the light, I thought I would share some photos to show how a simple thumb screw might look. It looks a bit better than a simple cap screw depending on your taste and these screws are about 1 dollar or less.
If your camera tripod mount is near the center you can also set the camera down on the screw head as shown in the photo. You can’t do this with a cap screw.

Continue for photos of a rosette thumb screw and part numbers for both types.

You’ll want to choose one that’s at least 3/4 inch long. The knurled thumb screw’s head is 3/4″ in diameter as well.

Click a photo and then use your arrow keys to cycle through them. Part numbers are at the bottom of the article.

    I’m interested to attend the 3rd Ward class. Will pay in advance for the kit.

    Do you possibly have a ROSETTE thumb screw to bring to the class that I can reimburse you for? I prefer something that large so can remove easily plus that it provides a “seat” for the camera. And I’d rather not have to buy a pack of them.

    FYI: My tripod screw thread is center in bottom of camera.
    Thanks, das
