momonpod accessory so i can tilt

is there some type of plate i can mount on my 1/4inch threaded male that usually attaches to the bottom of my plate on my camera that will allow me to tilt as i can on a normal tripod. i want to be able to bring my monopod down to the shortest length, about 2ft and brace it against my waist, only way to do that on that angle is to be able to have some sort of tilt piece that goes on the monopod and that piece has a 1/4in male that then goes into my camera base. hope im being clear. someone has to have this out there.

The Manfrotto Video monopods have a small tilt head on the top as standard. Otherwise maybe a small tripod head or photo ball joint.

In the small head category, I use a manfrotto 701hdv with ex1r. It is adequate for lockdown shots as it sounds lime you are doing. Pan resistance is adequate but cou trrbalanxe is insufficient for ex1r class camera. I use it on a slider and on a set of travel sticks.
