Introduction: Quick, Cheap, and Easy Tripod

this is a very simple tripod for a camera that you can keep in your pocket. just screw it onto a water bottle, which shouldn't be a problem since there are coke machines everywhere.

Step 1: What You'll Need

materials:
1 1/4" hex bolt, 3/4" long
2 1/4" hex nut
1 bottle cap

tools:
drill
1/4" drill bit

time:
< 5 minutes

cost:
< $.50

Step 2: Drill Bottle Cap

use a 1/4" or slightly smaller drill bit and drill into the center of the bottle cap.

Step 3: Screw Nut 1

screw one of the nuts onto the bolt all the way down.

Step 4: Add to Cap

screw the bolt onto the bottle cap.

Step 5: Screw Nut 2

screw on the other nut.

Step 6: Use

screw the bottle cap onto a full water bottle. depending on the siz of the camera and location of the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera, it should hold.

    Well actually yes and no...Monopod (literal sense yes, ofcourse), you need to hold it in hand and shoot. Since we dont need to here, its not a monopod.

    simply. perfect

    you can add sand in the bottle

    that's not a bad idea for a more stationary monopod.

    Crap I was just about to make my first instructable off this, good thing I checked first.
