Looking for a phone tripod mount, but want it on the cheap? This dollar store hack is a simple trick to make your own phone tripod mount for only $1.
Tech stuff can get overwhelming. These days, not only do you need the phone, then you need a screen protector, protective (or decorative) case, earphones, smart watches to go with, bluetooth speakers… the list goes on and on. So that’s exactly why
I figured out this neat little hack a couple of years ago. I randomly figured out the fact that the end of a selfie stick will fit perfectly onto a tripod mount, making it an easy way to put your phone on a tripod in just a few seconds.
Make sure to look for a selfie stick that has a top that screws off. I found mine at the Dollar Tree (although I’ve seen them everywhere – because apparently selfie sticks are essential to teenage life.)
So next time you want to film your baby girl’s monologue at the school play, a baby getting their first Happy Birthday song, or whatever moments in life you want to capture – then remember this trick so you don’t have to miss the moment by trying to watch through the phone instead of in real life.
