Introduction: GoPro Stabilizer With the Extendable Pole You Already Own

About: My name is Travis and I like to build cool stuff and learn about interesting things.

This is kinda dumb. Let's just start out with that. It's really simple and stupid but it works for me.

I've been doing this for years and I've had a few different people stop me and mention what a great idea it is. So I decided to write a quick blog post about it even though it's stupid easy to do. It's a way to stabilize your GoPro shots using an expandable pole which most owners already own. This is the one that I have.

Step 1: Extend the Pole

Extend the pole out so it's about 18" long. Make sure the skinniest section is exposed so most of the weight is towards the bottom.

Step 2: Grip the Pole

Lightly grip the pole directly underneath the GoPro mount. Grip it between your thumb and index finger.

Step 3: Add Some Weight (optional)

Add some weight to the bottom if you think you need it. The wrist strap allows you to basically attach anything you wish. A stapler, a mug, a helmet; anything!

Step 4: Shoot!

Now get outside and get some of those precious shots!

And you gotta have a set of doggles for your dog because that's just what you do.
