During the 1950s a small aluminium tripod bush with a fix stud to lock the camera chain to was made. This is similar to the first form of the cold shoe. It is un-marked and not documented in any of the Minox prices lists, brochures or authoritative books published on Minox cameras.

The camera is placed on the rubber ring, pressed down and turn clockwise to line up with the two parallel support tags. Without support for a cable release this limited the use it could be put to.
