What size is the ball joint on the El Grande pole?

Apparently no one can answer this or help me with it, not even GoPro support when I called.  I want to use the el grande pole with my fusion but with the quick clip mount its always in the shot.  I need to remove the quick clip and replace it with a ball joint mount similar to this https://www.amazon.com/gazechimp-Monopod-Tripod-Outdoor-Sports/dp/B07PBW8P5G/ref=sr_1_fkmrnull_9?key... The problem is, after ordering about 5 different kinds the ball joints are either too small or too big.  What is the size of the gopro ball joint mount on the bottom of the quick clip and can I find a replacement to be able to use the fusion with the El Grande??

Re: What size is the ball joint on the El Grande pole?

@homer027, we definitely want to help as best as we can. Typically, we recommend using the Fusion Grip for the Fusion camera.

 

I also like the extension of El Grande mount. However, Fusion may not completely work well with it without having to go through the quick attachment plate on the footage. 

 

Unfortunately, I'm unable to find any information about the exact measurement of El Grande's ball head.

Related issue here: https://community.gopro.com/t5/Cameras/Better-interface-between-El-Grande-and-Fusion/m-p/326869#/M91...

 

I believe it's 15mm, according to my micrometer.  

 

I am printing out this attachment (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:603877) to see if I can avoid the quick-clip and attach the Fusion directly to the El Grande.  I'll post an update when I try it out...

 

tom.
