Quantum, Novatron and a number of the other lighting companies use the AC (household) sync and the cables to connect them to Skyports and PocketWizards aren’t cheap . The only two manufacturers I’m aware of that produce these cables are PocketWizard and Paramount and both charge around $25-35 for a short cable! Here’s how to make a few for around $4.00 each!

What you’ll need
Double ended 1/8″ Stereo cable (you can use mono or some old headphones which will be cheaper, but this guide shows a stereo plug because I had one on hand)
Leviton Lamp plug found at Home Depot for less that $1.00 each (Home Depot doesn’t seem to sell them online) Be sure to get the solderless kind unless you want to solder.
Phillips screw driver
Test it out and show off your super-ugly new sync cable!
