Microphone holder on 305 failed

Just like the persistent problem on the Sony Z1 , the first microphone holder come adrift from our Canon 305 cameras. Small screws, short
thread, too much leverage - thread stripped and £300 quote for replacement handle body. We bought aftermarket metal mounts for the Z1's but I haven't seen a solution for the 305. Has anyone experience/advice to share. Thanks . Mike
PS Can ANYONE at Sony or Canon explain why such an obvious weak point is built into these otherwise super cameras - they must know they're bought for tough service.

I've shifted over to this. Works well.
