How connect: flex clamp to gooseneck to mounting buckle?

The jaws clamp has a mount connector on it.  The gooseneck has a mount connector on one end and a quick release buckle on the other.  I insert the quick release buckle of the gooseneck into the mount  on the jaw clamp.  Now I need to connect the free end of the gooseneck (the mount connector) to a mounting buckle already attached to a mount on a tripod.  How do I do this?  Or what do I need to do this?  If I tale the mouning buckle off the tripod, I am left with the same mount as the one on the free end of the gooseneck.  So maybe another way to phrase the question is,  how do I interface a mount to a mount?

Re: How connect: flex clamp to gooseneck to mounting buckle?

Hey @davef,

 

I am having some trouble identifying how you are attempting to connect a different mounting buckle from a tripod to the gooseneck. Can you please upload a photo of your current setup so we can have better visibility?

 

Cheers,

Eric
