The product description is somewhat ambiguous I think, but this is what it does. This nicely made adapter has a 3/8-inch male (i.e external) thread and a 1/4-inch female (i.e internal) thread. In other words, it will allow you to attach a tripod head that has a 3/8-inch threaded hole to a tripod that has a 1/4-inch threaded spigot.

Until recently I've been using some cheap 1/4" to 3/8" conversion screws. Yes they do the job, however sometimes they can be very hard to get off without harming the thread. At least with the MN-088LBP has a grooved rim; with the use of a mole grip, it comes off no problem and of course no damage either.

For such a small part it does seem very expensive, however for me it's an essential product I need for my ball-head and would rather pay that bit more for extra quality.

Would recommend.

[EDIT: March 2015]

I now have a three of these. Simply fantastic.

This adapter is ideal for me: I have a lovely old Slik camera tripod, which is well made and certainly not ready to be retired yet, but the (non detachable) head isn't smooth enough for video, which is my primary use. Using this adapter, I can attach a lovely, smooth Manfrotto video head to my old Slik tripod rather than fork out for a whole new tripod. So, now I simply have a video head mounted directly onto the old camera head. Looks a little odd, but works a treat.
As others have said, the Amazon description of this item is a little confusing. To clarify, if you wish your tripod with a small 1/4" mounting screw had a larger 3/8" mounting screw instead, this adapter is for you. Most modern tripod heads have a 3/8" hole in the bottom. (Cameras tend to have a 1/4" hole.)
My only criticism of the adapter is that there's no grub screw on the bottom for locking the adapter to a Manfrotto head so that it can't come undone once tightened. A small criticism though, as it doesn't seem to come undone easily regardless.

Has the appearance of a high quality machined part from NASA. Its expensive but hey !!

An essential part if you want to put your 3/8" thread 494RC2 head on top of your 1/4" thread tripod or monopod.

I never buy fakes as I am normally disapponted.

This is a superb product, expensive but necessary.

Great wee adaptor for use with my Joby gorillapod slr zoom and Manfrotto 484RC2 tripod head.
Pity abouts Amazon's over use of packaging, should have fitted easily through the letterbox, instead had to go and collect from sorting office as item was in a box comparible in size to a shoebox.

An excellent converter. I use 3/8 threads on my camera/lights/field monitor, so this is ideal for my monopod which only has a 1/4 inch thread. I tried the little thin metal converters but they shred and fail. This looks like a better, more robust solution (bit embarrassing if the camcorder falls off the monopod!) and has been 'permanently' screwed onto the monopod.

Looked at other adapters, like the cheapo male female converters that are on Amazon, and eBay. But being Manfrotto, and having the knurled edge I went for this thinking this should be good. I was also worried about the type of metal the cheapo ones were made off, no sense being up a mountain and the cheapo one lets you down and you come back with nothing, as you cannot mount your camera on the tripod !
Although a couple of quid dearer, the quality is present, and the metal/threads should last for years.
The knurled edge I like a lot, again this is an advantage over the cheapo versions, when your fingers are frozen on a cold day and you are trying to rotate the adapter onto the tripod/head, or when the ball head decides to get jammed onto the tripod - you can get your fingers in to get things moving again. I recommend this product.

Nicely engineered. Attached to my Velbon ultra stick monopod. It would be good if it was available in a larger diameter as the adapter is a smaller than the diameter of the stick which can make removal tricky as it needs to be tightened.
