Underneath the decorative spring trim clip is a plastic pin
The spring has two functions, the most obvious of which is to tension the foot to the shoe. The second may be more important, but is less obvious; the upturned ends serve as stops for the front of the shoe instead of a pin.

Correct..... and if those tabs get bent,the flash can slide too far, resulting in no contact, or worse the flash shoe can jam on the camera shoe.


Hang up and DRIVE!
