Introduction: Bottlecap Monopod

About: I am a photographer in Cumberland and am willing to work for free for anyone who would like a off-scene photographer. I am willing to photograph for anyone in Cumberland, RI

It may not be original, but it works. The bottlecap monopod can be attached to any water bottle, and of course costs only under 50 cents. It was made out of trash, litterally, but is just fantastically functional. Also, please excuse any blurry photos because  I had to work fast due to low battery.

Step 1: Parts

Parts:
1 1/4 inch bolt 1 inch long
2 Nuts to match
2 Small washers, 1/4 inch
1 larger washer, 1/4 inch
1 Bottle cap

Tools:
Screwdriver (phillips)
1 ratchet head to match nuts

Step 2: Making the Hole...

Use the screwdriver to make the hole inside the bottlecap, making sure that you go from the inside out, then screw the bolt in.

Step 3: Final Touches...

After attaching the bolt, attach the componets in this order:

nut
small washer
small washer
large washer
nut

Then, fasten using the ratchet bit and screwdriver.

Step 4: Your Done!

Now, screw into your camera gently. If the it doesn't fit, the bot is too big, or you have some kind of alien camera.

Anyways, thanks for reading!

    Im Sure You Can Buy A Cork Washer Just About Anywhere Or Make Your Own And Then You Wouldn't Mark The Bottom Of The Camera
