I have a couple of Cycliq cameras that use this 1/8 turn connector. What type of connector is the other end (the two protrusions with a hole through them)?

The two circular holes will mount to a Go-Pro type mount. This is clever as the Go-Pro mount is available for a wide variety of surfaces include suction cups, helmet mounts, sticky mounts, handlebars, selfie poles and the like.

Notice the adapter has two tabs and a hole. That's a "downward" facing part, so its to go into a matching part with three tabs and the bolt/nut for retention.

Here's a gopro camera showing the two downward tabs in clear plastic:

So your adapter is intended to have the circle side facing upward, to mount the Cycliq light onto a gopro mount on the bike, not to mount a camera.

    Go-pro mounts are becoming quite standard now for action cameras and other accessories. – Chris H Jul 16 '18 at 8:14

To me it looks like a variant of Garmin cycling GPS mount:

However, your mount has four notches, not two. Maybe it is compatible with something else.

EDIT: Googling for the names and images reveals what this adapter is compatible with - Cyclic's own lights:

    Thanks, but the question is what the other end connects to. – Rupert Morrish Jul 16 '18 at 5:21
