Simple and Cheap PVC Pipe Tripod

simple cheap PVC pipe tripod with camera

PVC pipe is great for building random creations.  In this Instructables Article, Sooraj Bagal shows us how to make a PVC pipe “tripod.”  Apparently for under six dollars.

The design is simple, consisting of 3/4 inch diameter pipe, 4 tees, and 4 endcaps.  You’ll need to drill one of the tees out to accept a 1/4 – 20 bolt, which you can lock down with a nut.  To use this with a GoPro, you’ll need a GoPro Tripod Mount (Amazon), but most other cameras should work any other accessories.

This is a cheap, simple, and possibly useful design.  If, however, you want a gigantic PVC tripod that I have no idea what it would be used for, check this PVC monstrosity out!
