Re: Mounting a 3/8 inch female fluid video head to 1/4 fat gecko

They make 1/4-3/8 bushings especially for this use- the typically have a slotted top so they they can be tightened well. Here are some: »www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_···+bushing

I am pretty sure those will come loose as I pan the camera back and forth. I have been doing some research and I think I need something called a converter plate, but I cannot find one that accepts 1/4 male on one side and has a 3/8 male thread (stud) on the other.

Here is what I mean

Unless I am mistaken, the devices you pointed out are to adapt a thread on a camera to a different kind on something fixed like a tripod with screw or a quick release plate.

In those cases there is no torque on the adapter until you are dismounting the camera or camcorder.
