Homemade GoPole for a GoPro
GoPole cost around $50, a lot of money for what I need. A
discarded, bent ski pole would make a perfect GoPole. This was
a very quick project.
Use pipe cutter or hacksaw to cut the pole to length
File the rough edges at the cut
Tap a dowel in to the end of the pole. I used a section of
an old pool cue stick.
Drill a hole to accept a 1/4-20 bolt (same threads used on
the tripod mount)
Thread the bolt so the bolt is secure
Use a hacksaw to cut the bolt to length so the it will not
bottom out in the tripod mount
File the rough edges of the bolt at a 45 degree angle
Attach the GoPro and see if it is oriented to the pole handle
If it is not properly oriented, put a nut on the threaded rod
and use a wrench to twist the dowel in the pole until proper
orientation is achieved.
