    go pro moves

    I'm using a hero 7 black and like it a lot. My favorite mount is a mast mount on the steering tube. However, the go pro tilts downwards eventually on rough trails unless I tighten it more than I like to tighten such a small bolt/nut.

    Has anyone tried anything that can hold the camera position without so much tightening? How about carbon friction paste?

    1. This is why GoPro, and others, make a wrench. You can torque the screws down much tighter than doing it by hand.



    2. When tightening by wrench still isn't enough I've added friction paste to lock the mounts down.

    Use a phillips screwdriver. Most of my mounting will be secured with a screwdriver, not the thumb screw. Only in cases when the camera is subject to moving. Hand held or mellow use is fine for the thumb screw.

    If you ride with a multi-tool, you already have a screwdriver with you.

    The soft steel of the GoPro screws wasn't screwdriver friendly for me so I switched to aftermarket thumb screws years ago.

    +1 on og-mtb - Ditch the GoPro screws and go with the aftermarket stuff.
    I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.
