Introduction: GoPro + Scuba Light + Hand Grip Mount
This mount allows you to mount your GoPro and a scuba flashlight to a hand held grip for underwater filming.
GoPro HD Hero 2 camera
Dorcy Dive II/ Penetrator 220 underwater flashlight
GoPro rollbar mount
2-in-1 hand held grip/mini tripod (like this: http://bit.ly/yjlWP1)
5" Mending Plate
Two - 5mm x 0.8mm x 70mm tap bolts
Two - 5mm x 0.8mm wing nuts
Eight - 5mm x 0.8mm hex jam nuts
One - 1/4"-20 wing nut
Step 1: Cut the Mending Plate
Cut the 5" mending plate down to size. The predrilled holes are the perfect width apart to accomodate the rollbar mount. I used a Dremel tool to file down the sharp corners and round them out.
Step 2: Replace Bolts
Replace the original rollbar mount bolts with new (longer) 5mm x 0.8mm x 70mm tap bolts and attach 4 5mm x 0.8mm hex jam nuts to each bolt. (In the pic there are 5 on each bolt. I ended up taking one off of each side)
Step 3: Attach Light
Attach light to rollbar mount ensuring the top of the mount curves towards the BACK of the light.
Step 4: Attach Mending Plate to Mount
Attach mending plate to grip mount with 1/4"-20 wing nut.
Step 5: Attach Roll Bar Mount and Light to Mending Plate
Insert bolts from rollbar mount into mending plate and fasten with 5mm x 0.8mm wing nuts.
Step 6: Attach GoPro
Attach GoPro and enjoy! :)
