I did see those when doing my search and they look like they do exactly what I'm looking for. But they mention a 5lb weight limit which just would not be enough for what I'm doing.

I've had this for years and while there is no listed weight rating, it's extremely strong. You just need to use the appropriate adapters for 3/8" hardware. Anytime I need an angled position, this is usually what I reach for.

With the locking teeth that looks like it might be a winner. And for $9.99 at Adorama the price is right.

What swivel is this?  This is Zmans and it worked great at the 40 Watt.  Been waiting for days for him to answer on the part!  I thought it was the umbrella one but it looks a little different.  Essentially I need to do what Steve posted about.  Superclamp with a Matthews extension that can change angles.

I'm not sure but I don't think the matthews extension would fit over that.

@gordon, that swivel looks like a Manfrotto 155 Double Ball Joint Head. Kupo makes a clone.

I’ve been using a Manfrotto umbrella adapter for years, plus it only has one joint

Thanks!  Just figured it out.

Edit: Impact makes a knock off as well
