    I couldn’t have found this DIY at a better timing, because this is going to be perfect for a short film I’m preparing to shoot in April. I got all the tools necessary, so I just got to go out and grab the nuts and bolts and order the other parts from Ebay. You guys got some nifty designs for some real cool camera mounts. Awesome job guys!

    Skakeboard shots, rollerblade shots, and even some running action sequence shots would look epic by filming them using GoPro adjustable pole mount. I don’t really know exactly how the videos might look with the shots that I got in mind, but gopro gives me a lot of flexibility in terms of the types of videos I can get even when I’m filming alone. The adjustable pole mount is by the far the best design you guys came up with so far. Thanks for this.

    I found out there’s an easier way to do this where you’ll only need a tripod mount.

    take one small umbrella that folds out, screw off the top cap that sits atop the end of the pole.
    Mine fits perfectly on the tripod mount, but i suspect there might be different sizes.. get rid of all the excess umbrella surrounding the pole.. mount tripod mount and gopro.

    et voila, an adjustable pole with a firm grip, no tools necessary.

    If you don’t need an adjustable mount, this can be done with a ski pole as well if you happen to have any extras lying around!

    Nice, time to make my own pole…anybody notice him using the grinder without safety glasses? Would suck to lose an eye and not be able to watch these DIYs….Regardless of how old this is. Thanks!

    Aside from the lack if safety the only thing id suggest would be lock nuts or lock washers so it doesn’t loosen up
