Default My DIY Kayak GoPro Mount

Last weekend after breaking down and getting a GoPro 3+ i needed a kayak mount for it and i didn't feel like spending upwards of 60$+ so i made my own for around 10$ that's better than anything iv'e seen for under 100$ so here it is.
(Took the photos with the GoPro too)

Over view:

The top:
So i couldn't find a flat pvc cap so i took my heat gun and go the PVC hot and pressed it on the table to make it flat so i could use the flat GoPro mount on it. and i wrapped it in vinyl tape and sealed the open spots with gorilla glue to make sure it was on good.

Safety measures:
So i go some elastic and two crimps, one smaller crimp for the screw threw the PVC and a bigger crimp to go through my kayak seat incase i flip my kayak and my Pole and GoPro go to the bottom of wherever i am.

Then incase the adheasive ever falls off the PVC for whatever reason i attached a piece of stainless steel coated in rubber to the pvc pole and used a crimp to make a hole just big enough to go around the PVC screw to make sure it doesnt fall out.
(Sorry for the blurry)

Heres a sample of what it looks like in use(I have no idea why its such bad quality)

Mount looks good Ray...video quality looks good too. What program are you using to edit the videos? I use Adobe premiere pro.

Freshwater is for drinking, Saltwater is for fishing
