Tripod Treads

I need help. I ordered treaded nuts in UK (ebay) to fit 3/8" tripod tread.
But it didn't fit right. It was called UNF.
What is the correct name for British Thread, that will fitt normal tripod treads - 1/4" or 3/8"?
Please :-)

Best regards
Jens

Moved to proper section.
As the sticky at the top of GT says,"Photography Related Threads Do Not Belong in General Talk".

Standard tripod thread sizes... the two sizes are standard throughout the world.

3/8 inch 16 UNC and/or 1/4 inch 20 UNC.

The 1/4 - 20 UNC thread is the standard on most consumer cameras.
