I just added another softbox to my collection, but I am having issues installing the PCB/Alien Bees Speedring.
Since it didnt come with any instructions and I cannot find anything helpful on google, can anyone tell me how I am suppose to install the PCB speedring?


Thanks in advanced for any help.

That looks like a Fotodiox or similar foldable soft box.
Two solutions to your problem;
A) Buy an adapter ring from Kacey Enterprises. Its the white one with the umbrella hole.
B) Order a White Lightning / Balcar adapter ring from Fotodiox or from whomever you purchased the soft box.

A is the better option.

you gotta unscrew the speedring adapter from the speedring and put it into your softbox's speedring.

oh wait, looks like the adapter is a different size.....

I ordered it with the alien bee/PCB/white lightning adapter, but I think they might of sent the wrong one.
Also since this is an ez-pro softbox, I cannot remove the rods from the original speedring.

ughhh
