Longer Thumbscrew when using Display Mod?

[ New ]

There are short and long standard GoPro thumbscrews. Is anyone aware of an even longer thumbscrew for when using the Display Mod?  Not the threaded part, but the handle part.  I'm using the traditional GoPro standard long thumbscrew.  But when tightening it hits the bottom of the Display Mod casing.  Please advise.

Hello, @markdelo. Were you referring to the Media Mod? If so, make sure that the thumbscrew is inserted on the same side as the one-directional mic. See the attached image. The gap should provide enough space for the head of the thumbscrew.

Yes, the Media Mod.  I was using that side due to the cut out area.  But it still hits and presses up against the bottom of the cam.  That's why I was wondering if there are longer ones available.

@markdelo, the long thumbscrew will hit the bottom of the part of the Mod, but it should lock in securely. Is it too loose? You can provide us a photo or video so we can help look into it.

I have the same question as the thread author.

 

Even though the media mod has an indentation to accomodate the head of the long standard thumb screw and they don't press/touch too much, we could use an even longer screw because once it is screwed tight, the head goes all the all in and it is not easily acessible to unscrew.

 

Does a longer than the standard long screw exist? If so, where can I get it? Thanks in advance!

I'll add my voice for longer thumb screws especially for the Meda Mod for the Hero 9, please!

Yes I’ve also been trawling online to see if there is any such thing but sadly doesn’t look like it yet. It is a pain trying to undo it or even tighten it sufficiently on my motorcycle helmet so that the wind doesn’t move it. I’ve been using a screwdriver.

I am also looking for longer screw like maybe extra half inch. There is no way to use gopro9 orange floaty with surf or bodyboard mount in a sufficiently tight way. Using screwdriver has stripped phillips head in two sessions taking video.
