Carrying a tripod or selfie stick for casual photos or video? Well here is a spall project to convert your trekking pole into a photo tool when needed. The phone mount can be removed and screwed in as needed. When done, remove it and place it in a pack pocket and head on down the trail.
An inexpensive DIY Selfie and Video Filming Stick. I do recommend using one of the spring loaded plastic phone holders over this aluminum one to save a little weight. Total cost $2.89 sans phone holding bracket.
Parts: Hose Clamp, 1/4 bolt, 2 x 1/4 nuts, and a phone mount.
You have to drill a hole through the hose clam to accept the bolt. Be safety conscious and use hand and eye protection . Use a clamp/vice to hold the hose clamp while drilling. File off burrs.
Difficulty: Moderate due to having to drill clamp.
