We know it’s hard to believe that a system can truly be universal, but with MagMod it’s true! MagMod’s magnetic modular system begins by installing the MagGrip onto your flash.
The MagGrip is a patented design made of high quality silicone rubber which makes it easy to stretch and fit onto almost any hot-shoe flash.
There’s only one MagGrip design, so you don’t have to worry about getting different sizes for different flashes. In fact, we made this list of flashes that we’ve found work great with the MagGrip.

*The Nikon SB-900 has a small button on the underside of the flash head. Nikon uses this to tell the flash when you have mounted the included Nikon diffuser, and forces and restricts the flash to zoom to 14mm, it’s widest setting. Sometimes with the MagGrip installed, the button will be depressed, and you will not be able to change the zoom on your flash. Nikon apparently realized this flaw and improved it on the SB-910. If you shoot with a SB-900, you can try adding a washer or some layers of tape to prevent this button from being depressed.
**The Nissin i40/i60 flash has a magnetic sensor built in to adjust the zoom when the integrated diffuser is used, and the magnets in our MagGrip may trigger this sensor and force the flash into wide angle mode. If you shoot with the i40 or i60, you can try installing your MagGrip slightly askew in order to avoid triggering the built-in sensor.
