tripod + A/C with 7 Black?

Just picked up a 7 black this week and I have a question-

 

How can I mount this on a tripod and plug it into A/C simultaneously?

 

It seems that the only way to mount it on a tripod is to house it in the frame that came with it. But the problem that arises, is that when it is in that frame, it seems to be impossible to gain access to the USB3 port to plug it in because there's no way to open that little flappy door that protects that port as well as the HDMI port when the camera is in that frame.

 

Is there some way to remove that flappy door so those ports remain exposed like my Session5 which doesn't even have a door?

 

Or am I stuck having to scour Amazon for an alternate frame which allows me to keep that door open as well as being able to be mounted on a tripod?

Sure @stoutbluff226,

 

I'm talking about HERO7 Black not the session. 

The charging door for HERO7 black can be removed. 

 

Regards,

Hi @stoutbluff226,

 

The door can be removed. 

Just open it and then pull. 

 

You can still reattach that door.

Re: tripod + A/C with 7 Black?

Hey, that's good news. I tried tugging on it, but it wouldn't come off. I didn't wanna use too much force, thinking that it might break if it's not actually supposed to come off. I'll try it now with a little bit more muscle.

Re: tripod + A/C with 7 Black?

Hi @stoutbluff226,

It is entirely understandable to be a bit hesitant in pulling out the side door. You need not to worry though; here is a simple guide that you can check prior to you removing it to put you at ease:

I hope the video helps.
