Picture of Simple PVC Servo Holder
In the making of a project involving servos, the moment came to place them, but I had no servo holder on hand. There were no special requirements (such as immunity to vibrations), and I just hate the idea of directly glue servos.

Rather than bothering to order some holders, I looked around to see what I had at my immediate disposal.

Here is a quick and simple servo holder, out of an L-shaped PVC profile.

Step 1: Needed Stuff

Picture of Needed Stuff
Material:
  • PVC profile, L-shaped, a bit wider than the servo thickness
  • Screws (I have some screws scavenged from old computer cases)
Tools:
  • Miter box+saw
  • Dremel
  • Flat file
  • Drill
  • Cutter

Very nice. I'm going to use this to hold my servos for my college project. Just what I was looking for. Thank you!
Very clever. I don't think I have ever seen "L-shaped PVC profile" Where did you find that? I can think of hundreds of uses for that. :-)
I get it at DIY stores. Plenty of it available

Very neat and a great idea! In the last photo you attached the servo to something which looks interesting, is there another 'able on the way?

Absolutely, so please stay tuned ;-)
