Re:reason why

if you are doing shoot through umbrellas you are not covering the complete umbrella with one flash no matter which way it faces unless you zoom way out and have a lot of spill over. by having a head facing in the vetical and horizonal position you can tighten the zoom to stop spill over, and cover the umbrella completely with out wasting light . It is a personal thing and many people would not even care about it.

I see.  Reasonable explanation.

Not to seem like I'm trying to sell the eBay product, but...  The bracket cold shoes are movable and rotatable.  The end result is that you can move two flashes very close to the umbrella shaft and also toe them in slightly so they point at the center of the umbrella.

Anyway, I do DIY lighting solutions myself so I totally get that you are happy with your solution.
