Cactus RF60X flash is stuck on a Canon 580EX II stand

This seems so strange to me for such a simple accessory. What in the world would cause the Canon speedlite stand to become stuck on the RF60X? (Yes, the locking ring is loosened). I applied considerable pressure, wiggling, etc. it will not move. Honestly, I am considering using power tools to surgically cut the thing away from the hot shoe. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.


  • Hasn't happened to me.

    It might be the locking pin being stuck.

    Perhaps try to use something like an automotive feeler gauge to get between the hot-shoe and the flash foot to manipulate the locking pin.
