I need two aluminum 10FT light stands for my Novatron 500 VR light heads. They can't have the "stud" on top as they call it. They need to be studless on top, just have the 1/4" aluminum rod because the novatron lights already have a bracket or opening that is 1/4" and will slip down over the top of the stand. Don't need anything so heavy duty, just 2 light aluminum stands without the studs and have the 1/4" rod. Anyone know where I can get them? The 2 stands I have were amvona which doesn't exit anymore and I need 2 more.

I guess no one uses the older stands anymore.

Hi there,

I don't think you can get stands like that and I just spent a little time looking for a conversion adapter and can't find one with a 1/4" pin.

Are you sure that's the spec? Could it be 3/8"?

I had a funny feeling that's what it was and never heard of a 1/4" pin or receptor.

That being the case you can get a conversion adapter such as this one:

That mounts to the 1/4"-20 nipple on top of most studs.

OR

Something like this, which mounts to the 5/8" stud on a light stand:

Thank you. I ordered a stand from Novatron and one of those adapters above. Now I'm all set.

Thank you all.

Just remove the bottom of the bracket on the Novatron mount and drill it out to 5/8 inch.

We have converted a few of these at my local camera club's studio.

Several years ago, I also just purchased the bottom part of the mounting bracket, with a 5/8 inch opening, from Novatron. I am unsure if these are still available

Enjoy! Lon
