Introduction: 12 Ft Long Selfie Stick

Picture of 12 Ft Long Selfie Stick

I was playing around with a selfie stick and found out that the picture taking button turns up the volume! So that raised the questions "do earbuds take pictures?" Yes! "does adding a 32 ft pole and some wire make a selfie stick?" Maybe!

Step 1: Parts and Tools

Picture of Parts and Tools


  1. adjustable pole
  2. iearbuds (they have to have the microphone on them)
  3. stranded wire three times the length of the pole
  4. clamp
  5. safety wire (or any type of wire)


  1. gorilla glue
  2. clamp
  3. soldering iron
  4. solder
  5. glue gun

Step 2: Glue Lash Glue

Glue the clamp onto the end of the pole. After the glue dries lash the clamp and the pole for added strength then squirt some gorilla glue into the lashing.

Step 3: Cut, Strip and Solder

Cut the earbuds between the mic and the split then strip the wires. Next, cut the 36 ft wire into 12 foot sections strip them

Step 4: Put the Wire Through the Pole

Using a big drill bit drill a hole into the end of the pole. Now you can start threading your wire into the pole.

NOTE: Taking apart the pole helps with treading the wires

Step 5: Finishing Touches

To secure the wire squirt gorilla glue into the end of the pole. Once that dries hot glue the mic onto the handle of the pole

Step 6: Take Some Selfies!

Did you by any chance get sentence #1 in the intro get mixed up?

And, How much does it weigh?

No I don't think so......

I hope Selfie Stick Pro will have a stick like this long.

I love your crazy idea!

attach multiple pool cleaning poles together and you can keep getting longer and longer distances. :)

But there will be a limit to how many poles you can use. Eventually the phone will get just too heavy to lift, or the poles will kink and fold down by it's own weight.

great idea! But what about the wires?

If you tell me what kind of camera/phone that you're using I can help you come up with something.

I would think you could of just attached something to a paint roller or something that screws on the end so its like removable.
