I was about to ask how on earth did you manage to fit the Neweer softbox on them (I ve for the same one..) As the R200 has very little room at the front in order for the softbox strap to be secured. But then I saw this photo; you ve actually teared the softbox bottom 3-4cm in order to slide it in, with the strap securing after the R200 mount

Just to be clear, I didn't tear the sofbox at all. They're built with a flap at this point. So they mount easily this way without any modification.

You could actually mount them entirely in front of the flash mount, but they would be liable to get knocked off.

Another option would be to use adhesive Velcro strips on the flash head and the softbox to attach them together, and not use the elastic strap on the softbox at all.

But the way I've mounted them here works fine.
