Today is Tuesday which means one thing: Tuesday Tips! This one is a merging of a few of my favorite things.. DIY, action cameras and cars. I show you guys how a little red handle can go a long way. I’m using a heavy-duty dual suction cup with a 1/4-20″ hold drilled into the handle to mount my GoPro HERO 2 onto.
Often found for under $10 dollars, these particular suction cup handles can grip glass, desks, walls.. we tested it on a ton of crap and it failed not once. These are also often times referred to as dent pullers or aquarium suction cups, as they grip and stick heavy objects. The suction cup handle I’m using is fixed and really only works on flat surfaces. You can, however purchase articulating handle dual cups if you need to grip a curved surface.
For in the car scenes that need lighting in tight spaces, these type of cups are great to mount LED lights, microphones, mirrors.. just about anything goes with these guys. If you can DIY it, the cups should be able to hold it. Another nice quality about the dual cups with a handle is that the handle is hollow. This means that you can pass wires, tie straps or anything that will fit, through this unit.
