I’ve just got a new EDIT (was : umbrella should be: softbox with bowens mount), but due to the weight of the softbox, the mount on the light does not stay at an angle and just droops down.

and heres: https://photos.app.goo.gl/TkEgBb8c2U8HRv1T7
and this is the mount piece that just cannot hold an angle: https://photos.app.goo.gl/1rhttb8Jd28Xzkg87
any ideas? I can return it to amazon without issue, but if anyone’s got any ideas I’d be interested, thanks!

UPDATE: going to return it, and stick to my current approach of boom stand + umbrella holder + large umbrella + strobe mounted separately (and NOT carrying the weight of the umbrella).
