Introduction: Hands Free Laser Mount

Picture of Hands Free Laser Mount

This simple laser mount is a really great way to hold a common laser pointer in place and also serves as a hands-free switch with push button devices.

Perfect for this tripwire project or any other where you require a mount for a laser or small flash light. I hope my accidental discovery helps you with your projects.

Push the laser into the cable tidy clasp making sure the buttons are facing up and the laser activation button is aligned with the tip of the clasp.
