Looking for 1/4-20 to coldshoe arm

I just received a TorchLED light, which doesn't come with a cold shoe mount. It does however have a 1/4-20 thread at the base so I need to find a swivel arm that goes from 1/4-20 to coldshoe. The only solutions I've found are the fancy metal $150 articulated arms.. I just want something simple, plastic and only swivels up and down like on my old Bescor light.. Do such a thing exist?

you should find what you need at just about any camera store in Chicago. I got a couple from Wolf/Ritz camera. Helix and Calumet will have them also.

Thanks guys.. I actually got the 482LCD from filmtools.. doh! I paid $10 more than the amazon price from filmtools.com

Ah well...

Don.. funny thing is, I live in the burbs, and driving down to the city is actually more work than getting it shipped from Burbank, CA! Yeah our highway system sucks..

Agreed. I also live in the burbs and I HATE going into the city.That's why if I need anything from a store there like Helix, I order either online or by phone.
