I finally broke down and bought a travelite 750 and want to use it inconjuction with my two Excalibur 3200 300 watt strobes to light the background. Problems is when the strobes are facing diffrent ways or subject is in way the slaves do not fire in slave mode so i want to connect them by pc cords. I saw and article where you can buy an adaptor to use regular extension cables here http://strobist.blogspot.com/2006/05/adding-and-synching-second-strobe.html

or i see the have a 3 way pc cable connector out there for like 30.00

any other ideas?

THIS is what I had in mind. You need a cord with a female PC plug on one end (for the slave) and a plug on the other end that plugs into your light.

Then you can hang the slave out in place where it can see the main light firing.

I'm sure there has to be a camera store in Chicago where you can get what you need. Just take your light with you to be sure you get the right cord.
