Introduction: Wii Remote Holder

 This is a nice, easy and cheap Wiimote holder for use with Johnny Lee's IR/Wiimote computer control, link below.

It is adjustable and quick to make.

Step 1: Tools Needed

Not much is needed to make the holder and the parts don't cost much at all:

Tools:

Pliers
Screwdriver

Materials:

12 Short Bolts
12 Nuts
2 Short Metal Strips (In this case I just straightened 2 weak 'L' brackets)
4 Long Metal Strips
2 Large 'L' Brackets
4 Small 'L' Brackets

Tip: You could add washers for a tighter fit

Step 2: Assembling the First Side-Bracket

As in the picture - take one large 'L' bracket and one of the small 'L' brackets, a bolt and a screw.

Face the small 'L' bracket away from the large 'L' bracket and attach with the nut and bolt through the very top hole. Face the bolt head away from the large 'L' bracket as seen in the second picture.

Make two of these - these will be your supporting frame for the body of the holder.

Step 3: Assembling the Main Body

The main body makes use of the 2 large metal strips, 2 of the short metal strips, 2 of the small 'L' brackets and 4 nuts and 4 bolts.

Using the first picture as a reference, going from top to bottom:

Connect the short metal strip to the 2 large metal strips with the nuts and bolts nice and tight.

Connect the small metal 'L' brackets to the long metal strips from the first hole on the 'L' brackets with nuts and bolts.

Connect the second small metal strip to the end hole of the small 'L' bracket.

Remember, nice and tight!

Step 4: Attaching the Side-Brackets to the Main Body

 Now you will be adding the two constructed side-brackets to the main body using 2 nuts and 2 bolts.

Attach the side-brackets from the end hole of the small 'L' brackets to the third hole on the long metal strips (see first picture), repeat on the other side.

Step 5: Adding Balance Strips

The last step is to add balancing strips to your holder - this uses the last 2 long metal strips and 2 nuts and 2 bolts.

Connect them to the last holes on the large 'L' strips to the hole on either end of the large metal strips with the nuts and bolts.

It is now completed - enjoy!

Step 6: Complete

Your holder is now complete!

It may benefit from some washers to keep the joints tight and a little bit of padding on the bottom would stop it from scratching whatever surface it is on - if any of you make this and add any tune-ups then I would love to know and see it.

Enjoy.
