Seat Wedge Receiver for GoPro or Swann Camera system
by davepix, published
This is a bracket to hold a Swann POV camera on the back of my bike, attached to the wedge pack under my seat. It is inserted through a loop on the back and held at the top by the velcro holding it to the seat. There are holes all over the bracket to allow elastic bands to be strung through which adds some shock absorbing properties to the bracket. Also it can be used just to mount to stuff since it has lots of holes.
Build on platform with the receiver facing out and the support tabs facing down. Snap off tabs when finished. Lightly file the inner surfaces of the receiver before use and it will make it easier to insert and remove the bracket. Built on a TOM in PLA using Sailfish accelerated. MK7 extruder, 2 extra shells and 10% fill.
I broke one just to see how strong it was before trusting it with my camera, it took considerable force. Of course if you are concerned with the strength of your build, a safety leash would be an easy and reasonable option.
