Jaw/clamp mounts are one of the most versatile and flexible mount you can have in your arsenal of GoPro accessories. However, it’ll cost you a pretty penny to buy one of them bad boys. Having said that, I decided to make one myself and I have to say I’m quite pleased with the result considering it only cost me a fraction of the amount of an original one (which cost around 800 PHP).
Tools and Materials needed:
Bolt (1/4″) that fits the GoPro tripod mount
Nut (1/4″) that fits the bolt
tripod mount – 40 PHP
Jaw Clamp – 199 PHP at the DIY store. You might find it cheaper in your local hardware.
Steps in making your very own Jaw Mount
1. Drill a hole at the end of the clamp handle. You can also drill on the actual jaw but I chose to drill the handle for more flexibility. Make sure the hole is not too small nor too big. You want the bolt to fit tightly in that hole ;).
2. Insert the bolt in the hole and secure it with the nut.
3. Fasten the tripod mount to the bolt.
There you go, in 3 easy steps you have your own jaw mount. Watch the video below to find out more.
