How to Make a Tripod Mount for Any Camera

Most cheap cameras and toy camera's lack tripod mounts. This is unfortunate, since there's a large fan base for these camera's, and many people use them to create photographic art. Tripods can mean the difference between...

Adding a tripod mount is fairly simple and works perfectly. It requires little technical knowledge and simple tools. It is important, however, to carefully check the thread width on the on the nuts before using them. In the off chance that the nut has a defect in the threading that makes the tread uneven, you will need to purchase new ones.

Finally, this will only work on camera's with some kind of flat surface on the bottom. A perfectly round camera can be used, but it will be difficult, and the results can be unattractive.

Tools needed:

Cardboard, vinyl, or some other disposable surface
2 nuts that are flat-bottomed, sized 1/4-20 (any hardware store carries them)
1 bolt (1/4-20) for the two nuts
1 toothpick or small metal pick
Either hot glue and gun or a strong, fast drying epoxy

Once you have the tools, follow these steps to make a simple tripod mount.

Step 1: Lay the cardboard or other work surface on your work surface. This will prevent epoxy from staining your workspace.

Step 2: Take the two bolts and screw them onto the bolt. Make sure that they turn smoothly. If they do not, there is a defect in the threading, requiring you to use a different nut. Screw the two nuts entirely onto the bolt. This is simply to align them and keep them stable.

Step 3: Using either epoxy or hot glue, glue the outside seem of the two bolts. DON'T glue the nuts to the bolt. Only glue the outside of the two nuts to keep the bolts together.

Step 4: Either allow the two nuts to air-dry, or use a fan or low-heat blow drier to make them dry faster.

Step 5: Once the two nuts are completely dried together, unscrew them from the bolt. The result should be a solid two nuts being held together that unscrew as a unit. Now, attach the new bolt to the bottom of the camera. You can use the epoxy or hot glue to do this. Epoxy will work better, as hot glue will be more unattractive and will be weaker. Simply lay the top of the two nuts flush against the camera and add a ring of glue around the edges. Be sure that the nut is set flush with the camera, to avoid tipping.

Step 6: Once the camera is dried, test it on your tripod to be sure that it functions as it should.
