Because we have a brand spankin' new one and are giving it away.
This is an all metal Quad Shoe Flash Bracket that mounts on to any light stand.
The four cold shoes (allowing you to mount up to four Speedlights) secure your flash(es) with oversized thumb screws and will keep them where they are supposed to be, there is a center hole for mounting an umbrella of any size, and the entire bracket can angled into the position you need via a secure saw tooth pivot joint.
Check it out on the video below for more details.
