An adapter for connecting a medium 50mm water resistant PikoButton to camera-type mounts. This adapter is based on the style of similar mounting adapters by ATMakers.org.
To assemble the mount with the switch, you will need:
1 - 3D Printed Mounting Adapter
2 - M4 machine screws, 12 mm long
1 - 1/4"-20 UNC tee nut, 5/16" long (e.g. https://www.mcmaster.com/90975A025, also available at hardware store)
You will also need the following temporarily to install the tee nut:
1 - 1/4" Washer
1 - 1/4-20 UNC machine screw or bolt, 3/4" - 1-1/2" length
Volunteer your 3D printing skills to help people with disabilities in your community!
Makers Making Change is an initiative of the Neil Squire Society, a Canadian non-profit that helps people with disabilities.We are committed to creating a network of volunteer makers who support people with disabilities in their communities through 3D printing assistive devices. Check out our library of free, open-source assistive technologies with parts and build instructions.
Clean out any support material from the center section.
To install the tee nut, line up the barbs of the tee nut with the slots on the mount adapter. Put the washer on the 1/4"-20 UNC bolt, and thread it through the adapter and into the tee nut. Tighten the bolt until the tee is flush with the bottom of the adapter. You can then unscrew and remove the bolt and washer.

Attach the mount to the PikoButton using the two M4x12mm machine screws.
The adapter can then be attached to a tripod or a mounting arm with a camera connection.
The 50 mm Pikobutton has three threaded M4 mounting holes on the back. One hole is in the center and the other two are spaced apart by 31.5 mm. The two spaced holes are about 6 mm deep.
The adapter was created using Autodesk Fusion 360.
