This past weekend I had to drive to Philly to shoot a skateboard documentary. I was put up to the task of building a rig to make it easy to film while in the car. The best way for me to accomplish this task was to build a suction mount. Its a very cheap, easy, and fast build.

Step 1: What You'll Need

Suction Cup  - $5.99 (http://www.harborfreight.com/dual-cup-suction-lifter-46134.html)
Ball Head - $19.00 (http://www.amazon.com/DMKFoto-Heavy-Quick-Release-Plate/dp/B001BPE3KQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1380912035&sr=8-2&keywords=ball+head)
3/8" Bolt - Cheap
3/8" Nut - Cheap
3/8" Lock Washer - Cheap
<p>I used your great idea to do my camera mount, I used one more flat washer placed between the handle and the joint ball (it didn't make any difference though) and I used the 3/8 bolt with 2 1/2 inches that you didn't mention. </p><p>Thanks a lot for the idea. Simple, inexpensive and functional.</p>
