Homemade anti-snag mounts

 

 Some help to build your own

goprDownload a template for the PE sheet snag protector as PDF here. Print it out and then cut the shape from some plastic sheet (2mm PE-HD works best for me). Warm PE it with a lighter along the your marks and bend it around the camera. Try it out with stiff paper first to get the right location for the bends.

Or use some moldable plastic like InstaMorph or sugru to build some snag protection / deflector around the camera mount.

    Hi,

    What about Contours?
    I’m currently jumping one that attaches to the side of my helmet.
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

      i don’t have one of those at hand right now, but analog to the gopro’s in the gallery i suppose one way would be to put something over it (eg. lots of gaffer tape, or some piece of bent plastic sheet), another would be to fill the hollow space beneath it and build some deflector this way (with some moldable plastic for example). send me a picture if you got something!
      ciao!
