After putting together my DIY GoPro grip I’ve been thinking up more DIY mounts to add to my growing collection of GoPro mounts! Here’s two of my latest additions.
- Get some PVC pipe that’s 22mm in diameter
- Cut to size
- Add a mountain bike handlebar grip to one end
- Add a GoPro handbar mount to the other end
For a more detailed look, plus some extra ideas, I’ve put together a quick how to video here:
The second DIY project is a modification of the popular Ikea egg timer timelapse mount.
Sitting this thing on the ground with a mount and camera on top can be a bit unstable, especially in the wind. The solution is a mini tripod.
To mount the timer on the tripod I drilled a 6mm hole in the bottom of the timer using a Dremel (no need to take the timer apart). I then tested the hole with the tripod screw, it was slightly too small so I used a sanding tool to carefully enlarge the hole. It may take a few attempts of sanding but once the screw starts to ‘take’ it will thread the metal and the plastic underneath giving you a secure fit. No need for screw tap sets!
Obviously this mini tripod can be removed and the timer can be placed on a full sized tripod or any device with a male tripod attachment.
