Hey guys,

I just picked up a Heiland Synchronar and I'm having a bit of trouble finding the proper mounting bracket for my anniversary

Here are the brackets on the flash gun:

Anyone know what kind of mounting bracket I need to look for?

I think you may need this, or something like it: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Heiland-Flash-64E-1-Bracket-for-Graflex-Crown-Speed-Graphic-Camera-Very-Good-/300828230362?pt=Camera_Flash_Accessories&hash=item460ac282da

Disclaimer: I have a Graflite flash for my Century, and no experience with Heiland products!

Thanks Henry
I had seen brackets like that before, but the posts on my flash gun don't have the "key" that fits into the bottom of that, they just have two of the same round pegs.

Take a close look at the backside pictures. I think that you will find that the bottom post on your battery case will slide in and lock in place.

I think it was put on upside down. The large part of the hole is down, and the flash will slide down and fall off.

If you look closely there's a clip on the top hole that locks in place.

You could always replace it with a more common bracket:
