This is a simple lantern holder that I made to take camping. I wanted something portable, that would also not take up a lot of room to store or transport camping.

Tools you will need:

  • Drill and drill bits
  • Hack saw
  • Crescent wrench
  • Philips screwdriver
  • Tape measure
  • Sharpie

Materials you will need:

  • 1/2" 10ft electric metal conduit
  • 1/2" EMT set screw coupling
  • 5/16" x 6" cloths line hook
  • old disk brake
  • 3//8" 12" threaded rod and two 3/8" nuts

Step 1: Cutting the conduit

You will need to cut two 3 foot long pieces from the conduit. This will be the primary body of the lantern holder. You can use a hacksaw, jig saw, etc to make this cut, as long as the blade is designed to cut metal and will leave a fairly clean cut.
