Hi there,

 

I would like to use my Sea & Sea D200 housing with a Tripod but it doesn't have a screw hole. 

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Thank you in advance   :starfish:

I made a small bar from aluminium. This screws into the base of the housing using two threaded holes that were there already. Mounted on the bar is a small ball that then fits into the standard ultralight system. My tripod is made from Ultra light arms.

 

The advantages are that it is easy to use in the water, made from parts at hand, easy to adjust, adaptable for other uses

 

Disadvantages: cost and bulk but tbh I had the arms anyway.

 

Apologies, I have no photo of the set up but it works well.
