Make a GoPro telescoping selfie stick

If you own a GoPro, this is a quick, easy, and affordable diy selfie/extension stick.  First, run over to walmart and pick up a campco RV broom for $12.

The broom is held on to the telescoping shaft with a single rivet that you will need to drill out.  Once the rivet is out, slide the broom off and set it aside.  Next, you will need a GoPro extension piece like the one pictured below.

What you need to do is sand the edges that are marked in red.  Sand off just enough that you can slide the part into the end of the telescoping tube.  You only need to slide it in the the step up, marked by the yellow line.  Once it’s in you need to drill a hole through the tube that lines up with the hole in the gopro piece.  Slide a stainless bolt through and tighten down a nut on the other side.  Your done.
