Default Holga cable release adapter

I'm after a cable release adapter for a Holga 120n. If anyone has one that they no longer need, or a spare they are prepared to part with. I would be grateful. Please send a pm.

Having just searched, I'm amazed at how hard they are to get now, with the majority of searches telling me they are out of stock = probably not manufactured any more either.

You could carry on searching with the words, 'Holga cable release adapter' and maybe something will come up...

I'm giving some links to enable people to understand what you mean and to give you an ideas of what they used to cost:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Holga-Shutt.../dp/B000XB43I6

https://shop.lomography.com/en/product-tokscc-name

And ahhh!!! I've found one seller at $27.20 + p/p:

http://holgamods.com/holgamods/Holgas.html

And secondly I can see how one of these would work:

Thank you for your replies. They are no longer made and very hard to find second hand. Iíve been recommended to try an American website that recreates them with3D printing.

Default Firstcall cable release adapter

David,

Not what you are looking for but if you can't find one maybe this item from Firstcall would do the job? Or give you an idea how to make / adapt one.

Is there a problem with Nacho's suggestion? It looks exactly the right item and reasonably priced, as well as their saying it's in stock.

David,

If you have to look at the Firstcall one I would give them a ring and ask them how good is the fit on a Holga. They sell a lot into educational establishments (students) so would know I'm sure.
