Default Flash to lightstand adapter

I know there is an adapter that allows you to attach your off camera flash to a lightstand and use an umbrella, but I can't track it down. I think its made by manfrotto/Bogen. Can anyone tell me what it is, or tell me what you use? Its got to hold a Canon 580ex and a small to medium umbrella.

I can't get the first link to work Darryl, but the DLC adapter is spot on.
Now if I can only find it in the UK. Thanks.

I found this one, but I would asume I then have to add a ballhead or hotshoe addapter to take the flash unit. There is no mention of a suitable part.

Um, sorry. Here's another link. Suggest searching "Umbrella adapter" or by part number. Or reference manufacturer's website for dealers in the UK.

It's a fairly common type of part. Most of the proshops carry shoe mount/lightstand type stuff.

Thanks very much Darryl, that worked.
Tracked it down in seconds. I never spotted it at my usual supplier as they don't carry a pic of it on the website. Just knowing what it was called and who made it made all the difference.
