Roll Cage Swivel Mount for GoPro by FluidDoc Jan 28, 2013

Description

This is an alternative to GoPro's roll bar mount, which has huge posts sticking out the back and does not have the necessary degrees of freedom to get the camera level on an angled bar, such as the A-pillar. This addresses both of those issues by using zip ties to secure it and adding a swivel to account for skewed angles. Sized to fit a 1.75 inch tube, although slightly smaller or larger should still work fine.

This mount is great! Survived 3 autocrosses and the Thompson World Series, rock steady video. I would advise printing any end-use parts like this from Nylon, it won't crack like PLA or ABS.
Awesome. This one has survived 14 hours at Road Atlanta, and 6 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. 24 hours at VIR coming up in a few weeks!

I noticed one fault so far: The "prongs" printed in this orientation can break very easily when there is no gopro case connected. No problem when it's all together though.
I used this during my first 24 Hours of Lemons race and it worked like a charm. Thanks for sharing!

Instructions

I thought I may need something to keep the mount from twisting on the tube or swiveling on it's own, but with a couple of tight zip ties, it is extremely sturdy.
