Introduction: Homemade Stick Pic for Your Treking Pole

Picture of Homemade Stick Pic for Your Treking Pole

when backpacking or just hiking I often find that i am alone and when if want a picture of my self it always ends up blurry and out of focus. so after looking around online for a small tripod, i found the stick pic which you screw you camera on then push the stick pic on the end of your hiking pole. i fell in love with the idea until I saw the price $11 for a plastic ring and a bolt! realising that i could make this far cheaper set out to do so.

Step 1: Supplies

-one plastic bottle cap
-one 1/4" -20 bolt
- and one matching nut
-super glue

-hand drill
-1/2" drill bit
-1/4" drill bit

Step 2: Assembly

Picture of Assembly

1.drill a 1/2" hole in the bottom of the cap
2.drill a 1/4" hole in the side of the cap a dab of super glue around the 1/4" hole
4. thread the bolt in to the 1/4" hole and screw on the nut
5. allow to sit until super glue has set.

the angle is about 15 degrees, just enough to keep your hand out of the picture.
