Whether you want to record visual travel logs of your road trips or just point a camera through your windshield to film the road as it flies by, you will likely need a dash cam stand to hold your camera in place. Having one professionally installed could cost you quite a bit of money. Fortunately, you can easily install a dash cam stand by yourself in a few hours yourself.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Drill a hole through the middle of the 6-by-6 inch square piece of wood with an electric drill and bit. Make the hole large enough that the headless bolt can be hammered through the hole to fit securely in the wood.

  2. 2

    Place the piece of wood on your work table and hammer the headless bolt through the hole so that it reaches the base of the wood, but no further.

  3. 3

    Place a washer through the bolt on top of the wood. Screw the tripod into place on top of the bolt.

  4. 4

    Place a thin layer of epoxy glue on the underside of the wood and position the wooden base in place on your dashboard. Fasten the wood into position with tape if necessary. Leave the wood panel and tripod until the glue has completely dried.

  5. 5

    Position your camera on the tripod and angle the camera in the direction you would like it to face.
