Aluminum tripod mount is the right way to go,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Smatree® Aluminum Tripod Mount Adapter for Gopro Hero4 Hero3+ Hero 3 2 1 HD Cameras -Threaded End (Blue) (Electronics)
I highly reccomend this tripod mount for the Go Pro. Light weight, durable and much stronger than the GoPro plastic tripod mounts.
