Do your radio triggers just hang? (When connected to monolights)
I was just wondering what everyone does with their radio triggers when they're connected to their monolights. Do they just let them hang or do you connect them to either the light or the stand somehow?

No need to hang! Velcro strips are your friend!
Sometimes I let them hang. Sometimes I wrap the PC cord around the power cord or a knob on the light stand. No biggie. Mainly I just want to keep them from sneaking into the frame.
I have been letting my radio triggers just hang for the past 12 years without any problems. I realize there are better ways, but hanging is just easier.
I don't recall the vendor, but the gizmos I use were cheap. Basically a 1/4" plug with a cold shoe molded onto the top of it and a short (~4" PC-sync cable to connect to the PC-sync out on the radio slave). Then you just mount the radio slave in the cold shoe and plug the whole shebang into the 1/4" slave socket on your strobe.
I put a bit of velcro on the trigger and the edge of the monolight as such. Got the coiled cord with screwlockPC connector off of ebay. It is sturdy and reliable while also being easy to move about.
Yep! Just the most logical way to get them up and out of the way. Really helps when you are moving lightstands around. It's bad enough to try and move them with big modifiers open. No need to also have triggers bouncing around.
Good idea! Don't know why I didn't think of this. Going to do this to my triggers now.
Great ideas. I should have thought of velcro first.
I went a different route and bought these . . .
