Trek Pole Camera Monopod / Selfie Stick

2

Turn your trekking pole into a camera monopod or selfie stick. This is a fast and simple camera hack. I won't be going into a great deal of detail in this instructable. I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.

Step 1: Parts

-Trek pole

-Small spring

-Washer

-1/4-20 screw of appropriate length

Step 2: Drill a Hole for the Camera Mount Screw

Drill a hole in the trek pole handle.

I took off the wrist strap to drill the hole for the camera mount screw. Because of the space limitation I had to drill it at an angle to get the screw to fit.

There'll be enough room to replace the strap after the build.

Step 3: Thread the Screw, Spring, and Washer Through the Handle

Step 4: Mount Your Camera!

I'm using GoPro compatible hardware in the picture and a generic action camera, but the screw mount will fit most point-and-shoot or DSLR cameras. Enjoy!
