How do I attach my Glow Softbox to my Streaklight 360?

I'm at the forums' mercy.

Adorama has not been helpful.

I purchased a Glow EZ Lock Deep Parabolic Quick Softbox [#A] with the intention of mounting it to my Flashpoint StreakLight 360 [#B] to replace the reflector [#C] that came with the 360.

I thought I would need to replace the speed ring that came with the softbox [#D] so I then purchased a Glow Beauty Dish Adapter Ring for Flashpoint Mount [#E], thinking that since the Streaklight is Flashpoint that it would work. It mounts to the softbox just fine but doesn't mount to the streaklight.

I was then led to a Glow Adapter to Lumedyne, Streaklight, Evolv [#F]. It mounts to the streaklight just fine but doesn't mount to the softbox. I see on its rim that it has 3 main holes and then a bigger 4th hole, but the circumference of the ring is too small to fit on its own directly into the softbox. I tried using either of the speed rings that I had to "adapt" the adapter in, but since there's no place on the rings to screw the adapter in, it just sat in there unfastened and loose and won't work that way.

Do I have the right parts and am attaching things incorrectly? Or is there a different part that I need?

Did you speak with people at Adorama?  I'm pretty sure you need this:

I might be wrong, however that is a Bowens mount adapter which matches your Glow EZ soft box.

+1 seems like you are missing a bracket.  

I was just watching this video, I might need to pick up one of these, it looks like a fast set up.
