I simply used part of a doorknob assembly I had lying around. You can see the hardware I used, a 1/4 inch bolt is standard for the female camera mount plus a few nuts. The little plate allows the camera to sit offset if need be. It’s what I had at the time for a quick and dirty setup. But it works good so I didn’t see the need to go another route. I made a second one for my other tripod.
