        So hang on… why do you drill a hole in the bottom of the timer? It never gets used…

        Oh wait… I get it. The hole is tapped to the same thread as your tripod, so you can mount the timer on the tripod, right?

        I was confused because the video shows the timer sitting on the bar, and then on the floor under the chair… but never on the tripod.

        Once the video ended and I went back to the article, I saw the shot of the camera on the tripod and finally 1 + 1 made 2. Derp.
