Making a Mono Pod

I wanted a mono pod for taking pictures with. I see all sorts of DIY Projects for these. Usually they involve hacking a hiking pole. Well I didn't have a hiking pole. I had a telescoping extension utility pole for window washing, painting you name it

I started my mono pod project by taking the tip of the end of the telescoping pole and inserting a
1/4 - 20 bolt in it and a couple of nuts on the business end of the bolt.

The nut drove the bolt head up into the pole tip to a nice tight fit. I put a second nut on for security.

And there you have it an adjustable Mono Pod ready for picture taking!
