I have a 42" reflector. I have a couple lightstands.

What product do I need to hold the reflector to the lightstand and angle it?

In the UK we call it a "Lazy Arm"

@ZachOly Angling requires support on both sides of the reflector and associated mounting hardware, e.g.

The (modest) portability advantage of a spring-loaded reflector goes out the window with that extra support: better to use an assistant. If you keep it vertical, then a simple clamp will serve. The best choice is a reflector with a frame that can be positioned and angled with real grip gear. These frames may be rigid, or collapsible (more expensive).

Okay, say I'm willing to buy the "correct" reflector that does what I'm looking for. What would that be?

EBay has a cheap one I also have a PhotoflexLightingSchool that I really like instead of rubber blocks that go around the metal rim of the reflector it uses clips it's a mini boom arm with clips

@ZachOly Using Matthews brand merely as an example, the portable-frame systems called RoadRags (2'x3') and RoadFlags (4'x4') might interest you. The frames break down for transport. When opened, you can attach the fabric of your choice. The product is expensive, particularly the kits:

I don't often need reflectors in the field, so I use rigid frames (much cheaper) with factory-installed fabrics, or other materials that I attach myself. Here's a factory silk:



And here's a silk panel deployed in my studio:



All these frames have a mounting pin and attach to the stand via a grip head, and any angle can be set. For further standoff and positioning flexibility, use a grip arm. I use roller stands, but C-stands are popular and often come with a grip arm. Some of my panels:



Visible are scrim, silks, diffuser, lame reflector, foam core, flag, and spare frames. The foam core is gripped with a clamp that has the standard mounting pin, and can be angled as desired.
