Another one of the mounts that I have made, that has been quite useful is my ski pole handle mount.
I took a handle off an old ski pole, by letting it soak in hot water for a few minutes to let the handle soften up, then pulled it off the pole.
The top of the handle is round, which isn’t ideal for mounting any of the standard GoPro mounts on, so I used a hacksaw to chop a layer off and make it flat as I could. To give it a little bit of grip, I used a coarse grit sandpaper to make roughen the top of the handle up.
After sticking on one of the normal mounts, I mixed up a 2 part epoxy (This would be fine) and also added a bit of black ink to the mixture. I put lots of this on around the bottom on the mount, and used some masking tape to seal it in while the epoxy dried.
After that had set (12 hours) I also put in a large wood screw in a countersunk hole in the mount. As it turned out, that was complete overkill, as the epoxy was more than strong enough to hold the weight of a GoPro easily.
After taking off the tape, I used a file to get rid of the excess glue, and although it is not a particularly pretty join, it is very strong.
Why I like this mount so much
Although filming using this handle is not as smooth as using a pole, it does a better job than just holding the camera. If you use the J mount on the GoPro to connect it to the handle, it gives you lots of options for filming. Also I can fit the whole lot into my jacket pocket.
Adjusted like this, the handle gives you a good grip for filming other people, or using it as a follow cam.
Folding the camera up, it lets you mount the camera forwards, which I found most useful if I jam the handle in the snow, using it as a little monopod.
If you fold the camera around a little more, it is set up for filming yourself.
