Add a Simple Lens Cap Mount to a Tripod Using LEGO Squares


Last week, we wrote on how you can use LEGO pieces to keep your lens caps on your camera strap when they’re not protecting your lenses. A reader named Fearn quickly pointed us to a similar tip published over at Sugru at the end of last year. Instead of using camera straps, however, they suggest tripods as a sturdy way of keeping track of the caps.

The concept is exactly the same. Simply take two 2×2 flat square LEGO pieces, and use one as the male and one as the female. Attach one to your cap, and one to the side of your tripod (make sure they’re pointed in the right way).

Sugru recommends using Sugru (surprise!) to fuse the pieces, but anything that holds firmly should do just fine.
