iPhone5 Gorrila Pod Tripod Case by Peoples-Exchange Apr 3, 2013


This case was designed to use an iPhone 5 with the Joby Mini Gorilla Pod. The Gorilla Pod came with my headlamp (Joby Switchback) but rarely gets used. I have repurposed it to do time lapse videos of my Makerbot prints. It works great to take out the shaking seen when the camera is not attached to the printer. Because the case and phone vibrate with the printer your video comes out nice and steady. Hanging the GorillaPod from the Makerbot as pictured does require you to have a door on your Rep2 as the phone rests against it for support.

You will need to hand file the base plate so it mates nicely with your GorillaPod. Don't Jam it into the GorillaPod mount as it will be very difficult to remove. File down the base plate so that it slides easily in and out of the GorillaPod. To remove the case from the GorillaPod hold down the release button and press on the bottom of the case with your thumb. Pushing on any of the thinner parts of the case will most likely snap it.
