    GoPro adapters

    Some may not wander around the DIY lights thread to see this...

    MagicShine GoPro Replacment Mount

    Using the GoPro system to replace the o-ring mount found on most Chinese lights is getting somewhat popular. Posts 49 and 60 describe and show what is currently available to adapt a light to the GoPro system.

    Or you can easily make one from a gopro mount that most anyone has that owned a gopro. It is super easy and works great.

    Thanks for posting this Vancbiker, I haven't been over to the DIY section for a while. I don't have a gopro, but I know the mounts are becoming an industry standard. So that makes it a good option for led-light use as well.

    Carraig042, what did you use for the base material? Are you the one made the mount with just a dremel?

    Edit: I see that you used and existing mount and then modified it.

    Yeah, I just dremeled off on off the tabs on a gopro mount and put a spacer between the tabs and screwed it together. Took 10 minutes from design to product.
