Stick Pic

I made myself a homemade Stick Pic, a little doodad to attach to the end of my trekking pole and screw into my camera tripod mount in order to take pictures of myself. I made it from 1/2" adjustable clips intended to hold wire bundles together. Seems to work ok.

I drilled a hole through the plastic in the center of the clipping part and through the wall mount. This was not easy as it was hard to hold the thing while I drilled it. Then I screwed in a set screw. I wonder, as I screw the camera into it each time, if I'll end up driving the set screw further and further into the plastic. Time will tell.

I don't know how long it will last, but I can make a few and put the extras in my bounce box.

Meanwhile, two more pairs of shoes have arrived. I have 4 pair now.

  2. Thank you. My homemade stick pick ended up not working. I guess once you open and close it enough times, it doesn't want to stay closed anymore.

    I bought one of yours at the kick off. Works much better!
