With a piece of wood from a craft store and a couple of simple hand tools I built a connection plate that fits into the same tripod I use for my DSLR.
Step 1: Supplies and Tools
GoPro camera (with plastic case)
Tripod with removable plate
GoPro Flat Adhesive Mounts (if your GoPro kit didn't come with flat mounts or you've lost/used up the ones you have, you can find more here)
Light wood stock - I used 1/4" (0.6cm) thick stock
Paint and Paint Brush
I don't own many tools and I was able to complete the project with the tools listed below.
Miter Box & Saw
