I connected these two parts using super glue.

I was looking for a cheap version of those connectors (i bought one made for stop motion - the last one on the website - it cost me 20 usd) .... as i was reading your post, i just remembered there is something very similar (and cheap) used in photography. It's called a cold shoe mount. You can find them on eBay and maybe on amazon. I have one at home, but i have to find it to see if it could be the solution. There are different screw size (length and width ... 1/4 or 3/8)
