Before You Start:
Pick the Right Hat
The ActionHat® FlexFrame is 8 mm thick, so the best hats to use are adjustable high crown hats that will help compensate for the extra thickness added once the frame is installed. If using a low profile or fitted hat, it is recommended to use a larger size than normal for the ideal look and feel. Before making holes, insert the frame into the hat and try it on to ensure a good fit.
Since hat weights, materials and styles vary, we cannot guarantee that your DIY ActionHat will float. We recommend float testing your DIY ActionHat by installing the FlexFrame and your camera and placing in a bucket of fresh water. Since salt water is more buoyant than fresh water, if your hat will float in fresh water, it will definitely float in salt water. If additional flotation is needed, we recommend attaching a key float for extra flotation and security.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Will it work with other cameras?
The ActionHat will work with any GoPro camera or other action camera that uses a same style attachment. Other action cameras or point and shoot cameras will need the Universal Adapter for GoPro to connect via a 1/40 screw.
