I designed the rig to break down into 4 pieces that could easily be put in my backpack. If you did not need this feature you could omit the male and female adapters and get a standard 1/2 tee that could be glued on all three sides to save some money also the break is a nice feature but can be omitted as well.
If you are mounting a GoPro, the standard tripod adapter screws directly to the bottom.
If you want to mount you cell phone they make a tripod cell phone holder that works great.
I always love to see your work, email me photos of your completed rig and videos from your projects using the cable cam!
