Good morning, everyone. I am wanting to get either the

OR

(2) Lastolite Ezybox Hot Shoe Softbox Kit - 24x24"

If I need to tilt this non-tilt softbox, what bracket will I need? Also, I have read in reviews that the Speedlight bracket on this softbox does not hold the Speedlight securely. Any suggestion on a secure bracket and cold-shoe?

Moreover, I am planning to mount an SB-700 Speedlight and either one of the aforementioned softboxes on a Manfrotto light stand.

Please advise. Thanks
