    I could really use some help and/or references to something that will help me connect my BigBlue VL42000P lights to my KNEKT arms that are the large locline type for my trigger tray.

    How the heck do I attach these lights? I am assuming I need a ball type on the arm itself, and then use a clamp to join the two. What goes into these hollow locline arms to do that?

    Whoever sold this to you is pretty slack, but that aside, This will do it: Howshot Ball Adapter for LOC-LINE 3/4" Flex Arm

    check whether you have 3/4" or 1/2" locline, it looks like 3/4" but check anyway. Then add a standard clamp, there's one on the bottom of the page. That company is on Eurpoe, I couldn't find the ball adapter in a US store, though YOu could get this :

    Mozaik - YS to Ball Adapter and a locline YS-adapter (also on same site) and a clamp. For some reason YS-locline adapters are plentiful, but ball joint adapters are not. Or try calling one of the big UW photo stores to see if they can get a locline-ball adapter for you.

    AWESOME !!! Thank you...…..I think the Howshot is the ticket! Im ordering today! I bought this tray from KNekt--not knowing that I would have so much trouble finding what I needed to mount the BigBlue's I bought.....I already have a bunch of parts and a couple Vega's Im replacing so of course none of that worked. This company has since closed their doors (rats because I wanted to buy the dome) but I must say that I LOVE the trigger aspect of this tray and the great quality--- although I haven't used it yet in the ocean I have played around with it in the pool. So easy with the GoPro! THANK YOU!

    Oh--and I did call Leisure Pro and BigBlue for help attaching to these arms and had no luck :(.

    Yep, that is who I ordered from. Lots of options from them to do stuff that you just can't seem to find here in the US.
