Step 1: Supplies & Materials
- Tertial Lamp
- Sugru, or all purpose adhesive
- needle nose pliers
- philips screwdriver
- rubber bands (to stabilize the cam while the adhesive dries)
- a few zip-ties for cable routing (optional)
[If you don't already have a Tertial you can get one at your local IKEA for around $9.00]
Step 2: Preparing the Tertial arm
- Start by removing the shade from your Tertial.
- Remove the two screws holding the switch and socket assembly the arm.
- Take a moment to make sure your lamp is NOT plugged in.
- Now cut the cord, freeing the socket and housing.
- The lamp cord can now be removed, perhaps for use in another project, or just to get it out of your way.
- The springs can also be removed now. Unless your webcam is extremely heavy, they won't necessary.
Step 3: Choose your cam
Step 4: Prepare the webcam for mounting
Now is a good time to look for a mounting point on the back of your webcam. The C200 has a nice void just below the data cable exit point.
Step 5: Choose your glue
I applied two grams of Sugru to the end of the arm and pressed it into the back of the web-cam.
I used rubber bands to hold the cam in place, and then proceeded to use the rest of the Sugru covering things up and filling a small hole I made when removing the clip mount.
Allow 24 hours for Sugru to cure, or wait the specified amount of time for your adhesive of choice.
