Thanks for the instructable! With the new GoPro HERO 3 silver edition the GoPro comes mounted on a plastic board, but rather than throw it away I have repurposed it. I've cut it down to size, and drilled a couple of holes as you did here, then stuck a couple of hose clamps through to attach it to stuff. The benefit of using a hose-clamp instead of a zip-tie is that it's reusable, and tightenable too! Good instructable, thanks for the inspiration!
