Universal Fence Mount | GoPro Fence Mount | Mevo and Smartphone
The Universal Fence Mount is an affordable all-in-one device that is a great backstop camera mount as a GoPro fence clip mount, Smartphone fence mount, Mevo Start fence mount, or all three at the same time. It will keep your action camera or smartphone close to the fence and held firmly in place while recording softball, baseball, or any other sports where fencing is restricting your view.
The Universal Fence Mount is now currently on revision 3.0 and is manufactured with an upgraded Polycarbonate polymer. Not much has changed from the first design, but revision 3.0 is 2mm thicker with the center area being 3mm thicker than before. There is an integrated bubble level to make it easier to ensure your GoPro will be level when installing it on the fence. The integrated Mevo Start mount on the bottom of the mount has been strengthened and now includes a broader opening to use a wider range of mounts from ¼ to 3/8-inch cold shoe mounts. (actual opening is 31/64 inch, not quite 1/2 inch)
New for 2023: The Universal Fence Mount will be shipped with 2 spare fence hooks just incase that 1 in 1000 foul ball hits and breaks a hook. We’ve used this system for 2 years without any breakage, but we’ve got you covered just in case.
Also, it is highly recommended to use a backup method to secure your Action Camera or Smartphone camera from falling off and getting damaged. We’ve never had that happen either, but we will not be responsible for any damage to your camera. See the terms and conditions for additional information if needed.
The previous PETG Carbon Fiber mount was strong, but the new Polycarbonate is even stronger with better impact resistance. Printed with PolyMax™ PC, an engineered PC filament, it has excellent strength, toughness, and heat resistance. It is the ideal choice for a wide range of engineering applications and makes for a great GoPro fence mount for baseball or softball games!
This material has a very high tensile strength, but the toughness (impact resistance) is amazing and yet it provides great stiffness.
During our hook weight test, the Polycarbonate printed hook held 300 pounds before breaking, compared to 146 pounds of the PETG Carbon Fiber.
Our manufacturing process has evolved and we have invested thousands in upgrading our 3d printers to be able to print this material. The material must be dry to print thus requiring a heating/drying box before printing and then after printing each part needs to be annealed in an oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 hours.
Revision 3.0 is going to be a bit more expensive than the previous one, but these upgrades are always included at no additional charge:
- J-Hook Design Buckle with an upgraded aluminum thumb screw for GoPro. Camera placement is everything and we want you to use the best buckle for recording so we include it at no additional charge.
- Built-in bubble level to ensure the mount is level.
- Mevo Start Camera mounting plate is now built into the fence mount.
You’ll need to provide a method for attaching the Mevo Start Camera to the fence mount and we recommend the Multi-Function Double Ball Head or the Smallrig 11″ Magic Arm for the greatest flexibility or the 1/4″ Flash Hot Shoe Mount With Double Nuts for the lowest budget option.
Please note that pictures show how this fence mount can be deployed with added accessories that are not included. See notes below. Also, some pictures may show the original version, but we are no longer shipping that version.
The center 3/8 inch mounting hole for other cameras or accessories mounting options like the SMALLRIG 11 inch Adjustable Articulating Magic Arm (not included) coupled with an Ulanzi ST-02S Phone Tripod Mount (not included) will provide a superior smartphone camera mounting option.
Using the cold-shoe adapter mount with an 1/4″ or 3/8″ adapter will provide an excellent mount for a Mevo Start, Smartphone, microphone, pocket radar, or battery from the bottom Universal Fence.

- For GoPro, we recommend using the (included) J-Hook Design Buckle: Its J-Hook design means the camera is further away from its mounting point (or closer to the fence in this application), therefore allowing better angles to be achieved when filming.
