I need a STRONG off camera flash cord, if you see below the bottom right part (The square With intruding screw thread) that clips into the flash bracket. It is made of plastic and breaks very easy, does anyone know of one that is made of Metal or hard core plastic?
The one I have is from Pixel and cheap. It broke in seconds just under the pressure..

I have a canon OEM and a YN branded cord and I cant see any significant difference in quality between them. I do have some concerns that if your previous one broke that easily you overdid the pressure somehow.
