I came across an excellent video from GoPronaut’s YouTube Channel while researching mounts for an upcoming rafting trip. It walks through a step-by-step on how to create a GoPro Stainless Steel Safety Tether.
The cool thing is he uses vinyl coated wire and shrink-wrap tubing to protect whatever the tether is hooked to. All of the materials can be found from a well stocked home improvement store or off Amazon. This falls into the category of “wish I’d thought of that sooner” because these tethers could be used for many things (not just GoPro mounts).
Here’s the video. Enjoy!
