Hook & Loop Smartphone Tripod Mount by frubino Feb 15, 2013


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.

  1. Print the bracket with strip mounting surface as the datum plane to grow from. No support structure is needed.
  2. Attach a strip of self adhesive hook to the surface.
