Universal bottle cap tripod for cameras and cellphones

The sizes of nuts are in the instructions other than the M3s which anything 5mm+ works ok.
Very good design for holding the camera/phone etc - fitted an iphone 5s snuggly despite the curved grips not perfectly matching the iphones square edges.

The tilt mechanism could be better, perhaps adding a locknut or something to grip the thread at the opposite end to Knob 2. I don't have time to redesign or would do it myself.

All in all I'm very happy with the tripod, it does what it needs to acting as a temporary mount for my iphone.
I read the instructions but I couldn't buy the screws, nuts etc; by a lack of information towards the dimensions. I was asked by the seller and couldn't specify height or width, newbie times. Would someone help me out?
