The Redrock Micro Cobalt Cage for GoPro HERO3 is designed to protect your GoPro HERO3 action camera from falls, bumps, and crashes. In addition it can be used with the HERO3+ if the HERO3 Housing or Skeleton Housing is used. The GoPro attaches into the Cobalt Cage, and in the case of the HERO3 can be used with or without the GoPro original underwater housing. The optional Redrock Micro Deluxe Accessory Kit allows you to attach the HERO3 without its underwater housing, which eliminates the possible fogging that can plague your video and still shots, while still keeping the camera and its optics protected. In contrast to the one mounting point of GoPro's housing, the Cobalt Cage provides 22 different 1/4"-20 threads that surround the camera in all 360°. This allows you to use the Cobalt Cage to attach a variety of GoPro camera accessories.

The lightweight 6.5 oz Cobalt Cage features a reinforced high tensile design, and it's made of military-grade aluminum. This makes it impact-proof, crash-proof, and crush-proof. The multiple mounting points also allow you to mount the GoPro HERO3 using a true triangulation method, which minimizes vibrations by providing stable and secure mounting. You can also expand your arsenal of mounting options with support rails, suction cups, clamps and more. You can under-sling or side-sling the HERO3 as well, which will help you capture perspectives that would be otherwise impossible to capture with just the GoPro stock underwater housing.

Cobalt Cage can be used with the HERO3 underwater housing or Skeleton Frame. In addition, the HERO3 can also be used withount any housing when employing the optional Deluxe Accessory Kit

            Comments about Redrock Micro Cobalt Cage for GoPro HERO3:

            The cage itself is not bad. The fingers on the attachment that should fit a standard GoPro mount are too thin. They wobble which makes them virtually useless. I needed to add 4 shims to get a proper fit. It's not that the built quality is poor it's just that the item doesn't properly fit.

              I ride my mountain bike with my GoPro all the time. Before I had this I took a crash on my bike and the GoPro mount broke and sent my gopro off into a river.Now I use this and the metal ball clamp from them and the camera stays put no matter how bad of a dive I take.It's paid for itself tenfold compared to the amount of cameras I could have lost. I like this cage the best because I can still replace the battery without any tools. I've even done it while still riding along a trial haha.

                Comments about Redrock Micro Cobalt Cage for GoPro HERO3:

                Sturdy well built cage with more than a dozen ¼ 20 mounting points for attaching accessories, or to a mounting arm.

                The accessory kit is a must if you want to operate the GoPro naked, i.e. without its plastic case. Kit comes with allen wrench and screwdriver, the Hero 3 and 3+ are very secure in this unit, I don't know what other reviewers are referring to when they complain about this mount, its rock solid.

                Make sure you order the correct one, RedRock makes one for the Hero 2 as well and its a different form factor – will not fit the Hero 3.

                Cage provides easy access to the camera's HDMI, USB and microSD slot, so you can rig the GoPro with an external HDMI monitor if the camera is locked down for a shot.

                Cage provides extra protection for more demanding situations.

                Comments about Redrock Micro Cobalt Cage for GoPro HERO3:

                This is the must have cage if you want to use your GoPro in any sort of real production environment.

                Always hated the GoPro mounting foot, it was too flimsy and it would even move on some of the harder impacts my camera had, pretty much ruining the shot, and those are always the shots you want!

                I also love that you don't need tools to get the camera in and out of the cage for battery changes, because we all know how often that happens with the GoPro 3's!

                I ended up getting the extra accessory kit later so I could mount the camera without the underwater housing for better audio. That works well, but it requires tools so I ended up just using it without the backgaurd thing which blocks the battery door, so now I could still switch batteries toolessly.

                There is no better way to attach your GoPro to stuff and stuff to your gopro than this!

                Comments about Redrock Micro Cobalt Cage for GoPro HERO3:

                I bought the Cobalt Cage for a GoPro Hero 3 and the parts are very good quality. I can notice that it is solid and a good choice for use in extreme conditions.Missed though, that does not come with instructions to assemble optional parts, and also one of the screws was bigger than the hole, which was very unpleasant.
