    Hi guys,

    just bought a pair if 603's and after testing them am very impressed, trigger every time, even on a continuous shooting mode - very pleased. The only frustrating thing is that they have no locking mechanism on the hot shoe adapter, not so much for on top of the camera but it becomes frustrating when I attach it to my 580EXII, especially when I want to angle the flash backwards to fill a reflective umbrella.

    Just wondering if anyone has come up with a work around other than black gaffer tape :)

    Frio Cold Shoe's look great but cost more than thr triggers! Think they are the long term solution but for now it will be an elastic band :D

    Do the Frio cold shoes lock tight right up against the hot shoe on a flash gun? Or just stop it falling off?

    Ooh, look, a link to my site! :D

    Yep, Frio's are brilliant, but way too expensive.
