A small and simple quick release plate to be mounted with placeholders for a standard 1/4"-20 camera screw to be connected to a tripod or gorilla pod. It is around 2,5x4 cm (1x2 inch).

For a GoPro or any other action camera you will need a frame to be able to mount to a standard tripod.

A quick release plate can be kept attached to the camera's base and allows the user to quickly and easily attach or remove the camera from the tripod without having to waste time fumbling with the threaded mount.

Thanks for your tips, if you like it.

The recess for the nut to receive the threads from the tripod is a little short, so I had to grind my nut thinner before I pressed it in. Otherwise, the top of the nut and the bottom of the bolt to attach the camera won't allow the camera piece to sit flat on the bottom and the lock won't seat fully. I'm guessing you used a thin headed camera bolt instead of a common 1/4 20 bolt for the camera piece, so the recess on the camera piece was sufficient to make up for the bolt being proud. I used a standard hardware store bolt.

Might I suggest adding a little thickness on the bottom of the base so the bolt sits flush? 1/4 20 nuts are 5.6mm thick. Then it would be compatible with standard hardware bolts that are way more available than camera bolts.

I'll just remix it if you'd rather, but I've noticed when I post remixes people who see my remix don't bother looking to see the original, and you've made a very nice and original design.

Thanks anon576 for the information. I used indeed some camera bolts (https://goo.gl/1hyhLZ), because you can turn it with a piece of coin, if needed. I'll will add a second camera piece, for regular 1/4 20 nuts.
