A lot of sportsmen are having their outings recorded on cameras. From explosive top water excitement wild bass boat runs to their favorite spots, and off road trails on quads or motorcycles, the video camera has become the standard for the amateur short film maker. From cameras like the Go Pro, fishermen and other outdoor fun seekers can capture moments that can make them an instant star and in some cases a lot of money. Most Go Pro cameras start at around $200.00, but the thrill seeker can spend over $500.00 very easy. Unfortunately, the attachment adhesive for these fine little cameras does not stick well to rough surfaces or rough rides and lost Go Pro stories abound on Google and other product feedback sites.
Miller Built Products home of the Red One trolling motor systems has developed another group of fine systems that really fits right into the video recording world.
Introducing, “The Red One Camera Keeper”
The Red One camera keeper system was designed to be used on the camera housings that cover the Go Pro which is the most widely used small video camera of today.
The shorter Red One Keeper system starts with 12” of red vinyl coated, 100% stainless aircraft cable for strength and a no rust material. At 12” this system allows plenty of length to reach from your Go Pros camera housing to a secure location such as handle bar, roll bar, graph mount, etc. All Camera Keepers come with the anchor mount and stainless attachment screws to be used where no solid mount is available.
A premeasured eye fits right over the tensioner shaft of the camera and is swaged on with a stainless sleeve. A plastic spring ball is added on the system to take up any slack around the object you wish to attach to and then a 100% stainless steel snap is swaged on the opposite end with another stainless sleeve. The system held over 50lbs. in a dead lift test without failure. Plenty strong enough for a Go Pro camera. All stainless steel metals means the finest of materials are used that you spend your hard earned money on to keep your camera like the Go Pro onboard for a very long time in the event of a mount failing.
Installation is a breeze. Just unscrew the Go Pro housing tensioner, slip the Red One Camera Keeper eye on the plastic shaft and reinstall the tensioner. Loop the opposite end of the system around a secure non-living object, clip the Keeper around the cable and slide the spring ball to the clip.
