So, are you greedy on using the “expensive” GoPro mounts as me? Well, in that case you have come to the right place! Now you will only need 1 GoPro mount for all your projects and what ever you using it for in the future! This is a guide on how to make that portable GoPro mount.
I will be using the below items:
1x flat surface GoPro mount
1x small aluminum plate
4x 20mm*4mm bolts
4x 4mm wing nuts.
This is what you will need to make your mount.
The tools you will need are however:
4mm metal drill
Thats it for making your own mount.
Allright lets get started shall we?!
First you need to cut out a 5,2*5,2 mm aluminum plate using your metal saw and your ruler:
Now you need to take one of the 4 mm bolts and align in one of the corners – upside down – and slip a sharp object under the bolt and mark the center to know where to drill the 4mm hole. Repeat this for all the other corners. Maybe you can guess the next thing to do, which is to drill the 4 mm holes where you marked it before. It should now look something similar to this:
Now remove those aluminum leftovers/sparks with a knife or another sharp object:
Now all you need to do is to pop in your 4mm bolts, and place your GoPro mount on the plate – which will be one of the last GoPro mounts you’ll buy!
