Your light stand took a tumble in the wind, and your radio took the brunt of the fall! You need a replacement hot shoe so you can get working again!
Our radios are made from an glass-reinforced resin material, and shouldn’t break with normal usage. However, if gear gets dropped or knocked over, there is a high risk that some piece of gear will get damaged. A plastic foot allows for a less expensive (and user-serviceable) part to need replacement over a more expensive part like a camera or flash repair. In general, photography equipment like cameras and flashes and radios are not designed to be dropped or knocked over. We’re no exception. We provide a simpler, less expensive, and more accessible repair solution in these situations.
You can replace the shoe yourself if you’re comfortable with minor repairs, take a look at the video below for details. If you’d rather send it in, please contact us.
This replacement part is compatible with the FlexTT5 or FlexTT6 radios. The Nikon version is for the Nikon FlexTT5 only. The Canon version is for the Canon FlexTT5, Canon FlexTT6, or the Panasonic FlexTT5. Please be sure to choose the correct one for your radio from the drop down menu.
