Published on June 25th, 2012 | by Jules Yap


$30 DIY Tripod Laptop Stand

Materials: BRADA Laptop support, 3″x1″ Wood slat, you need around 6 inches for length, 1/2″ x 4″ Bolt, with 2 washers and 2 nuts, 2x 1/4″ x 2″ Bolts, with 2 washers and 1 nut per bolt, Super Clamp, Drill, Saw, Drill bits

Description: Photographers will love this. This is a hack to attach a laptop stand to your tripod so you can shoot on the fly. The back of the Brada laptop stand is reinforced with a strip of wooden slat and bolted securely.

The center bolt has to bear the weight of your laptop and probably the only thing stopping your laptop from turning into a pile of broken glass. The bolt is then “Super Clamped” onto the tripod.
