Help with light stand please

I'm wanting to try to do some off camera flash.  I've got the 5DIII and 430EXII flash along with Pixel King wireless flash triggers.

I'm looking at this light stand (Manfrotto 1052BAC)

http://www.amazon.com/Manfrotto-1052BAC-Compact-Stand-Black/dp/B0023RRPDS/ref=reg_hu-rd_add_1_dp

The question I have, is: do I need some kind of head to attach to the top of this light stand to hold the 430EXII/Pixel King Trigger or can I screw the Pixel King (the 430 is attached to the top of the Pixel King via hot shoe) directly to the top of this stand?

Probably a stupid question, but I really can't tell from the pictures/description and I have no camera stores anywhere near me to which I could go and look in person.

If I do need some kind of head, any suggestions?  No plans for an umbrella at this point.  Just the flash.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III
