this is a cheap way to make an adapter like the one that comes with the handlebar and rollcage mounts

mine was missing it as it was used so i made this

Step 1: Materials

The point of this adapter is to turn your GoPro 90-degrees for a side view

You will need:

  • Epoxy Glue
  • 2 DISPOSABLE GoPro QuickClips ( I used 1 broken one and 1 third party one. make sure u have one more to use)
  • Paper Plate
  • Toothpicks
  • a coarse & small fine file
  • Clamp

Step 2: Gluing

MAKE SURE TO DO THIS PART OUTSIDE!!!! "Epoxy Resin can cause eye and skin burns and respitory tract irritation"

I got some on my hand and was fine, but its best just to avoid touching it while wet.

  • ok, first squeeze the glue out on to the plate and use the toothpick to stir it
  • then dip each clip into the mixture. use the toothpick to spread it around
  • then put the 2 clips together as seen in the picture, and clamp it for at least 30 min.

Step 3: Filing

Now it is time to shape the bottom part

  • remove the metal nut off the end of 1 of the clips
  • then use a coarse file to saw off one of the 3 prongs(as seen)
  • use the fine file to smooth things out
  • take the small file and cut down on the edges in between and around the prongs
  • you may have to drill larger holes to attach it to your mounts
  • if so, use a 1/4 or 7/32 drill bit and file the edges again

Step 4: DONE!!!

this mount was designed for use on the handlebar or rollcage mount. it normally comes with the mount, but mine was used and was missing it

thanx
