Writing this update I find it hard to believe that it has been 18 weeks since the start of the Zipmount Kickstarter campaign, and close to 10 months since I first started sketching ideas for a zip tie GoPro mount. So when a FedEx package arrived this week with the first samples of Zipmount it's fair to say I had been waiting for this moment for a while.
And after all this time I am pleased to announce that the samples have turned out awesomely! The mount fits perfectly all over: the fit with the camera, the M5 nut, and the rubber base.
With no adjustments needed, the next step is polishing the tool. This is the final step in the tool production, and will give the part a smooth glossy finish. This takes about 7 days, and is already underway.
After polishing, and the first run of parts will start being made. I am expecting production to be completed around 18th April.
