a normal tripod screws into the base of the camera. The trouble with the GoPro is that it is usually used with its waterproof case, so you can't screw direct to the camera. This gadget fixes to the GoPro case and the top of a standard tripod.
You should not need to change the thread size on your monopod. All tripods, monopods, cameras and other accessories have standard fittings. Check that you haven't accidentally crossed the threads on your Panasonic which would make it difficult to locate the threads to tighten it.
Also, check that you are not trying to screw the monopod into the hole. Some cameras have a smaller hole beside the tripod thread.
You may be able to contact your monopod manufacturer in case they supply an adapter that wasn't supplied with your monopod.
You need a quick release plate in order to attach you camera to your tripod, it fits into the opening of the adapter on the tripod and you screw the plate into your camera, take a look at www.tripodquickrelease.com they carry Velbon quick releases and adapters.
The bottom threads on most tripod heafs are 3/8", but some are 1/4"/ The mounting screws on MOST tripods are 3/8", but I have seen `/4" (especially on monopods. IF:
tripod=3/8 head = 1/4 need mounting plate 3/8 female to 1/4 male
tripod = 1/4 head - 1/4 nothing
tripod 3/8 head 3/8 nothing'
tripod 1/4 head = 3/8 there is an adapter/reducer that screws into the 3/8
' female and reduces that to 1/4"
The mount has a 1/4-20 screw that fits most camera equipment. If you have the scope (spotting scope) it should have that hole in the bottom of the mounting ring. If the screw is missing from the window mount then most 1/4-20 tripod screws will work or you may substitute a cap screw and flat washer, to work with an Allen wrench for tightening.
Usually the camcorder has a hole next to the mounting screwhole. The plastic nub fit into the unthreaded hole, the mounting screw screws into the threaded hole. The nub is to help prevent the camcorder from rotating while you are using it on the tripod.
