DIY $10 GoPro Chest Mount w/Sample Vid :: HD

Quick and simple DIY GoPro chest mount. Can be had for even cheaper if you visit your local plastics store for some scrap lexan.

10~15 minutes

Drill and drill bit

1 1/4" thick rectangular piece of polycarbonate lexan (I'm using a scrap piece of aluminum layered plexiglass)
2 lashing straps (bought at walmart - Outdoor Products Lashing Straps)
1 flat gopro mount
1 curvy gopro base attachment

From what I've read, sticking some electrical tape between the gopro mount and case may further reduce camera shake. Will try this on my next outting.
