About this Product
This kit is designed to mount any model of GoPro camera on your clothes, walls, windows, backpack, paraglider, kite, sails , car, boat, motorcycle....
It contains back and top mounts as well as 3 magnets caps for the top mount (all the items shown in blue/grey in the exploded view picture) . You will have to reuse the screw and bolt from your regular gopro mount
Require separate purchase of 6 Rare Earth Disc Magnets (Neodymium) 1in Diameter x 1/8 in think ( ~$1 each on ebay or magnet4less.com)
Pick any grade above N40 - one single magnet of this dimension has a pulling force of 15lbs: On fabrics, once both mounts snap together it's almost impossible to separate them with a straight pull. They will come a bit more easily apart by twisting or sliding them.
Utilization : (tested with low magnetic grade N40)
Dynamic (Shocks &Vibrations) - material up to1/4in thk (tshirt, kite, paraglider, car window...)
Static - material up to 1in thk (table,doors, drywall, ceiling, boat hull...)
On metal (without back mount): might slide little by little with strong repetitive shocks only non-flat vertical surfaces (like certain car's doors) .
No Sharp edges: will not puncture delicate fabrics
Hollow and lightweight structure : can be used on kite, paragliders, parachutes...
Glue all magnets with he same orientation (North facing up for instance) for both mounts - test orientation before bonding.
We recommand flexible glue like Goop or 3M 5200 - Epoxy or crazy glue will also work but might resist a bit less to strong impacts
If weight is not an issue, you can fill up the mounts with glue to make them even more resilient.
Handling strong Magnets be aware of potential pacemaker malfunction, compass deviation and damage to magnetic media like harddrives.
This latest optimized version was just released and ordered - more testing, pictures and videos to come. Feedback is appreciated. Thanks.
