Want to (safely ) mount your camera to your car? This DIY car rig not only utilizes heavy duty suction cups but it’s also crazy cheap to build.


Mounting a camera to a car can be expensive, with rigs costing hundreds, even thousands of dollars. However, if you’re dying to get some sweet shots for a car scene or chase sequence, there might be a way for you to do it without having to break the bank or your camera. In this video, Rob Wayne of PremiumBeat gives you a step-by-step tutorial on how to a DIY car mount out of glass pullers (suction cups), a project that won’t cost you more than $30. Check it out below:






Materials and Tools

  • (x2) Quad-head dent/glass puller: $18/ea.
  • (x4) U-bolts: $6/ea.
  • (x1) 21″x5.5″ wooden platform
  • Pencil
  • Power drill
  • Drill bit (should be the size of your U-bolts)
  • Wrench
