GoPro wrist mount

I made this wrist mount  for my hero2 by hacking the original plate that was in the box. I use it for diving, but since it is adjustable, you can mount somewhere else also: tried it on my upper arm while motorcycling, and works pretty well, giving an interesting picture: records the road, while my head is in the mirror.
I didn't make photos of the steps, but I will highlight on the assembled kit each of the steps you have to follow.

Step 1: What you will need

Gopro plate from the original box.
Something to cut plastic: I used my swiss army knife.
File to soften the edges.
Drill to make holes in plastic. Wood drill will do, it has a pointer to help keep in position.
Electrical fast ties.
Straps, and buckle from an old backpack.
Velcro stripes.
Some sewing.

Step 2: Cut, drill, file

Cut out from the plate the mount part. Leave ennough space to make the holes, but dont make it too big, because it is not curved, as your wristle is.
So the aim is in the final product  just to have as small flat part as can.
Also cut two additional parts from the plastic plate with the same widht, and height as the mount: that will fix the strap in place, giving more stability for the mount.
File a bit the edges where you cut, not to have sharp.
Make 4 holes in the mount, and also into the two additional parts: make sure to align the two parts to the mount, and mark the holes before drilling.
