DIY Endzone Camera with Flag Pole

This project is an update on a previous version of the Endzone Camera QuadPod

In this version of the Endzone Camera QuadPod we used a telescoping aluminum flag pole instead of fence pipe. This allows for much easier transportation of the Quadpod from one event to the next. Checkout the time-lapsed video and the pics that follow to learn how to build your own Endzone Camera Tripod using Kee Klamp fittings, a telescoping flag pole, and some fence pipe from the local home store.

    • 4 x 6'
    • 4 x 33" (36" would work too)

And then you'll need the flag pole. The website I got mine from is http://www.telescopingflagpoles.com/. You must use the 16 foot flag pole for it to be compatible with the Kee Klamp fitting.

Attach the Upper Assembly to the upper portion of the flag pole as shown

077

Attach the Lower Assembly to the bottom of the flag pole as shown

079

Attach the 33" pieces of pipe to the Lower Assembly. Attach the 6' pieces of pipe to the Upper Assembly. Then attach the C50-66 fittings to the 6' pieces of pipe so that they meet the 33" pieces of pipe (see video)

075

Spread out your four legs evenly, adjust the legs and fittings as needed, and then make sure all the set-screws are tightened. Extend your flag pole!

086

If you loosen the setscrews on the C50-66 fittings, you can collapse your quadpod. You will want to re-tighten the C50-66 setscrews after collapsing to keep your quadpod manageable.

087

If you loosen the 40-9 setscrews, you can let the flag pole slide down to make the collapsed quadpod even smaller. Re-tighten the setscrews to keep everything together

The total weight is maybe 50 lbs max. The collapsed height is between 6 and 7 feet. Again, watch the video to see how it was put together. If you have any questions, please contact us.
