Safety precautions and risks

Now because we're rigging one of these cameras to the outside of And I use lots of little tricks. the car, we want to take some extra steps to rig it safely. GoPro has their own little safety lines. I use cable ties. And that last line of defense usually is some kind of safety line at the camera to somewhere hard-mounted on the car.

They're disposable, they're easy to get anywhere, they come in different colors. And I use lots of little tricks. But the other thing too, is I can custom make GoPro has their own little safety lines. I use cable ties. the length of them by just joining some of them together. So you can, you can really build a nice safety line just out of these things. But in this case, I just want to form a loop that's a point of contact for some of my other safety stuff, so I'm just going to use one, and attach it right there. It give me a nice, good point to grab with one of my standard climbing carabiners.

So it gives me a really easy, quick on and off. You can just cut these off later. And then I like to use, for adjustability and quick, quickness climbing ropes. And these things are great because you can, you can custom tailor the length. They're again, easy to grab. In this case, I'm going to grab it at the camera, and I'm just going to find a hard, the nearest hard-mount place, safe place, which is the side view mirror. It's good to have some cloth, some tape and things so things don't ding on the side of the car and cause problems there.

Now, remember it's a moving part of the car. So when somebody opens this door, you want to make sure it doesn't yank all the stuff off. But sometimes you don't have any choice, that's the nearest place. So I'm picking there with the caveat that I know that it's the car door opens and you just have to be careful. This will maybe not save the camera, but it'll keep it from causing damage further down the road. You never know, you can just customize it, make it tighter. That's the last line of defense if one of my suctions fail.

Of course we are going to go through and make sure all of these are nice and snug before you go anyway. But there's an example of a good safety line for your camera rig on the outside of the car.
