DIY GoPro Grenade Grip

I had a few GoPro parts laying around so I make myself a DIY GoPro Grenade Grip. The grip is rubberised so it provides good drip in dry and wet conditions.

GoPro DIY Grip Parts List

  • GoPro with mount (the water proof case that comes with the camera will do).
  • Mini paint roller handle (I got this one from B&Q).
  • 2 inch long ¼ inch diameter bolt and nut (I struggled to find this size in Ireland where metric bolts are more common).
  • GoPro tripod adapter.
  • GoPro mounting screw (Again comes with the camera).

###Step 3.###

Screw the tripod mount onto the bolt. If necessary you can trim down the length of the bolt, or add a few washers, for a better fit. tripod mount

###Step 4 (Optional).###

Seal between the roller handle and the tripod mount with epoxy or Sugru to make sure the bolt will not come undone or rotate.

And there you have it a waterproof, sturdy, grippy and inexpensive GoPro grenade style grip.
