    If an adapter mount does not exist, find a mechanical engineer type of person or an automotive repair shop, or a fabricator and take the problem to them.

    It will cost you a few bucks but you will get the mount, consider making two!

    You'd need some sort of adapter and bracket (similar to the approach Mola has taken, or the newer Lastolite Ezybox II).

    From personal experience, the Quadra head could not support the 21 inch Lastolite softbox with the disc Lastolite Quadra adapter. It does work well with a 12-inch beauty dish.

    I can't see it supporting a 22-inche beauty dish.

    Lastolite redid its Ezybox II line and that makes sense for the Quadra (no stress on the Quadra head at all). I bought a Mola bracket (again no stress on the head).

    You could take a Quadra RQ adapter and have a Hensel mount fitted on that but I don't know what it'd cost.

    I cannot find an easy solution to attach Hensel light modifiers to the Quadra.

    I looked at another options.

    I ordered a Profoto RFi Octa box 5' with Profoto adapter for small flashes, which should work with the Quadra head. I also ordered a matching Profoto RFi adapter for my Hensel strobes, so this 5' Octa will have a lot of usage.

    Thanks
