Flash bracket question

I'm after a bracket that'll sit on a manfrotto tripod and hold two flash guns side by side. Needs to be a decent quality in case of bumps and knocks and it'll get slung around regularly. Might be handy if it'll deal with brolly clamping and even better if it'll come off and have some kind of clamping mechanism to attach to architecture, trees, w.h.y?

Anyone got experience of something similar they've used reliably?

How about one of these (can't get more simple than this) and get one of those things with the snake-like legs as well:

I've got loads of grip at home personally (like superclamps & various other brackets) so would likely cobble something together from those if I needed to do the same.

Bongo ties are handy for attaching individual speedlites to things like thin railings & branches.

Manfrotto G clamps are excellent for attaching camera or lighting heads to railings, branches, back of chairs almost anything. Very solid in construction. Had mine 20 years so have no idea if they are still made though.
