Why the need for a GoPro Bobber?
Basically you need it for your camera safety when using your camera on water. Particularly at sea, because without it, your GoPro will easily submerged like a stone. So a bobber will save it, much more if the color is bright, you could easily see it even when its dark. It’s also a floating device, and you can shoot photos/videos underwater hands free! Isn’t that amazing!
That’s why for my DIY Bobber project, I choose the Mountain Dew 400ml plastic bottle because of its green fluorescent color.
Other materials needed
1 pc concrete nail size 4 inch
1 GoPro orig or generic Tripod Mount
1 set of 1/8th bolt & nut
(but in my case, I’ve used the bolt from my wreck tripod mount)
Mountain Dew 400ml flourescent platic bottle
(or any plastic bottle na mahanap nyo, yan kase Mountain Dew bottle na yan eh very rare na kse ginagawang palamuti rin sa mga jeep, sa kariton, sa bike, etc..)
Yan nga gamit ko, nakita ko lang naka display sa isang store, nilambing ko lang yung tindera kaya binenta sa akin hehe)
Procedure (very basic, even a 10 year old can do it)
Hammer half the length of the nail on the center of the cap to make a hole.
Move the nail in circular motion just to enlarge the hole a little bigger
Insert the 1/8th bolt and nut in between the cap
Place the tripod mount on bolt on the top of the cap
Cover the bolt and nut underneath the cap with silicon. Have it dry for while
Fit the cap on the bottle and place your GoPro camera
Finish! You now have a personalized GoPro Bobber and have save yourself some money.
Enjoy your water activity with your personalized GoPro bobber! 😀
