    I made a DIY tray can put it down to let it record and the handles make for good stability. The screw threads are made for standard sizes so can use gopro gear. Easy to unclip the lights and go pro for traveling. Can put them in with my laptop bag along with the tray and handles.

    I had one made of PVC. The down side was gripping it was not particularly comfortable, the round PVC fatigued my hand during the dive. A real handle is much more comfortable and less fatiguing. Also a proper grip let’s you feel the orientation of the camera. Occasionally I would looke down and realize the camera was at a 45 degree angle.

    A very valid point. In the spirit of full disclosure, I later bought a proper handle because it was less bulky.

    This is what I do when I just want the gopro available to take a couple pictures or just in case I see something cool. I didn't like using line or bungee though, so I made my own connector.

    When I'm using my camera, I mount the GoPro to that rig however and just set it to record video while I take pics with the camera.
