Id never heard of this method before until someone posted a link up on another forum.

http://www.instructables.com/id/String-Tripod/

It mentions a 1/4in 20 thread, which i think is UNF, but a 1/4in Whitworth will work also.
We didn`t have any eyed bolts at work in this size so i took a 1/4in BSW bolt and welded a suitable washer to the end. Just need some para cord now to give it a crack.

Good link - I heard about something similar many years ago, but that used a length of chain to achieve the same result, it was called a "Chainpod". I made one in a similar way to you - its been in my camera bag since and is hardly ever used, mainly because I always forget about it until after I needed it!
