Hook & Loop Smartphone Tripod Mount
by frubino, published
There are times I want to mount my phone to a variety of surfaces, ie windshield, desk stand, tripod, etc. I found a cheap alternative to those fancy clamps is to just use self adhesive hook & loop strips on the back of my polymer phone protector.
For my tripod mount, I printed this simple bracket to affix the hook strip. The dovetail mount is designed for a Manfrotto tripod, but I think it might work for a variety of manufacturers.
The bracket is tall enough to accomodate the phone in both the vertical and horizontal positions.
- Print the bracket with strip mounting surface as the datum plane to grow from. No support structure is needed.
- Attach a strip of self adhesive hook to the surface.
