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 a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
