The first post war tripod attachments have a smaller tripod bush, still 3/8" and are made of aluminium. The cradle was increased in size a little to provide extra support and the arm now has a cross bar that extends in front of the camera and gives a counter point for the pressure put on the release button by the cable release.  It was not until the mid-50s that the locking device was added. This is a knurled screw that uses the camera's chain socket to fix to the camera. The camera can now be used in any position to take the photograph.
