This type of mount was posted on one of the forums a while back, great idea. What I did was add a couple of Nylon Collars along with a Locking Nut to hold the adjustment. I have used them for the past 3 months with no problem. I have 2 lengths of the Lag Screws, 3 & 3/4" and 2 & 1/4" with the Screw Eye into the cam being 1/4-20 threads. If you have any questions PM me.
Thanks, csb

I back off the Wingnut way down, then put the small 1/4" Nylon Washer on next. I screw the camera on the Screw Eye CAREFULLY!!!down till it bottoms out in the cam then back it off to close to the position you want the cam facing. Bring the Wingnut back up and with the Nylon Washer between the cam and the Wnut. it acts like a loc washer. Done

This is a great idea, but your raccoons must leave your cameras alone? I have one location where the camera must be rigidly mounted to the tree with a bolt in the padlock holes or the little buggers will try to open it up. I have videos of him working on it, body covering the whole camera, real noisy. He pulls the external battery cable out, has gotten one latch open so far and tore off the little rubber plug for the cable hole.

I'm going to experiment with a tree trap to get him.

I've been using these and they work great. I have a homebrew in a large case with 16 batteries in it. I mounted the cam up high angled down and it never moved.

I made one and it works great thanks


Sweet!! I tried to make it and couldn't find all the right parts easily so I just asked CSB if he could make me a few. I'm sure he'd be happy to put a few together if anyone needed them.

Great concept.

My hardware store already thinks I'm either insane or a McGyver wannabe. It has been a long time since I have bought anything there and used it for it's intended purpose. They have even stopped asking me if they can help me find anything.
