Cuddeback E3 to slate river adapter

So no really in love with Cuddebacks "genius mount" on their cameras. Not a bad idea but there tilt and pivot mount requires screwing it to a tree which is nice for security but Im sure Ill get out there and forget the tools to install or remove it from the tree.

HME makes a cuddeback to 1/4-20 adapter but thought I would try making one on my own. Took the bracket that came with the cuddeback E3 and used a bench grinder to remove most of the bottom screw hole. (left a little extra meat behind for strength) Then drilled a 1/4" hole and mounted it to my slate river mount. Was worried it would break, but seems very strong.

I have a picture but not sure how to attach/paste it in here?
