Doesn't come with the nut... and a little overpriced.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: GoPro Tripod Mount (Camera)
Do yourself a favor, and buy a couple of 5mm Hex Nut caps from your local hardware store (my Home Depot had them in packs of 2 for ~ 50 cents, you'll find them in some drawers in the hardware section). The mount doesn't come with the bolt (but you can use the one you already have), but real issue is that it doesn't come with the nut, which all the other mounts have (hence the previous recommendation). Including this nut would have saved me the trouble of going to a hardware store, and getting it on my own. Although, you could probably pull it off one of your other mounts, but that is more of a hassle to pull that tiny thing off, and risk dropping it and losing it.
Anyway, it seems like it will be pretty decent. Pretty overpriced for a plastic adapter to convert it to a tripod mount. It'll definitely do the job, but could have been more handy with the nut, and cheaper would have been better too.

Received my mount today (8/9/2011) and it came with the nut enclosed.

You must have been missing the nut, because I ordered a few of these, and all of them had the nut. The problem is, the nut comes off quite easily. I have other mounts, and this one after its third or fourth use had the nut slip out. You can use epoxy or crazyglue to make sure the nut stays in place.

Just bought one from Best Buy today and it came with a nut. Regardless, I dropped by Lowes next door and pack of Hillman M5 .80 hex nuts.

Mine came with a nut too but it was loose in the bag. The nut is not glued into position but I will be gluing mine.

I bought mine a couple weeks ago and it did not come with a nut. I'll be off to home depot soon.

I bought one several weeks ago and another today. Both came with nuts. The nuts do come out quite easily, so I think you may have just gotten one with a missing piece.
