This is an easy build that will give you a steady mount for your smartphone for filming or taking photographs.

Project Steps

Drill two 5mm holes about 10mm in from each end of the aluminium bars.

In one of the bars, drill two 3.5mm holes to match the lamp mount.

Remove the wire and the whole lamp assembly from the lamp. Retain the bolts that attach the mount to the lamp head.

Using pliers, slightly bend the mount so the bolt holes are flat.

Using the saved lamp bolts, bolt the 4-hole piece of aluminium bar to the lamp.

Bolt the suction cups to the 2-hole piece of aluminium bar with the 70mm bolts and 4 nuts.

Using 4 more nuts, bolt the suction cup part to the lamp mount, and you’re all done!

Enjoy your new steady filming! This also works really well for mounting the iPhone as a video podcast camera.
