DIY GorillaPod Is an Inexpensive and Flexible Mini Tripod

GorillaPods are handy little flexible hand-like tripods that can attach a camera just about anywhere. If you like the idea but not the price, this DIY version offers the flexibility without the sticker shock.

Instructables user Matth3w shares a simple tutorial for turning some scrap wood, a handful of bolts, and some segments of Loc-Line modular hosing into a bendable tripod mount you can wrap around things and otherwise mold for stability on uneven or small surfaces.

Hit up the link below for detailed instructions including a parts list and a step-by-step build guide.

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.
