The adapter fit perfectly on the GoPro mount and the build quality is quite sturdy. I look forward to using it to hold my camcorder on the stick too.
If you're in need of a similar adapter for your GoPro mounts - don't hesitate - buy it!
NOTE: The screw in the mount I received is silver in color, not brass or gold colored as on Amazon.
I suspect it would probably do fine for attaching your small point and shoot or POV cam to a selfie stick, tripod, or hand grip. However, I would never trust this thing while mountain biking or motorcycling like the product description suggests. It seems like the slightest amount of vibration, jarring, or even wind would cause your camera to unscrew itself from this thing. One option would be to use a little blue loctite to secure it to your camera but that would make it a lot less convenient to use. Also, I am happy to report that I didn't have any issues using this with any gopro accessories. It seemed to fit perfectly.
My only complaint is that the screw and washer showed signs of corrosion on the second day of our diving trip (salt water). I was able to remove this with vinegar. I recommend rinsing in fresh water and drying right away after use. Maybe I'll try a silicone-based lubricant on the threads next time. The mounting plate is rubber so avoid anything petroleum-based.
For those interested, my setup was:
Polaroid Cube in waterproof housing
Polaroid Tripod Mount
Arkon GoPro Hero Mount (this product)
Waterproof Camera Float, Float Handle for GoPro Hero... (from Alaska Life)
The only reason it's 4 not 5 stars is that the adapter isn't gold colored, it's silver colored. Not a big deal, but it doesn't match the current picture (as of this review).
The mount is sturdy enough, and works well on the GoPro stick.
I found that this basic information I'm providing here is usually buried in the descriptions for these items. Gopro sticks are made to hold Gopros, you need this type of mount to allow a standard tripod type mount to work (all phone attachments and holders use this type of mount).
I hope this review is helpful!
It is sturdy, easy to use and large enough to easily keep a grip on. I leave mine attached to my action cam so I am ready to go at a moments notice. I am super happy with my purchase and want to say thank you for making it possible to use my action cam with the gear that I want to use it with.
Disclaimer: I did pay the full price for this product. I did not receive it for free or at a discount. All opinions are my own.
The fit in the GoPro mount is tight, but doesn't get jammed or stuck so I actually like it. It makes it feel like an even stronger connection. I also ordered a cheap 1/4 20" phone holder so now I can mount my phone using a GoPro mount on my dash on how dash.
I will most likely be buying more of these soon.
