Introducing the RRS GoPro Cage for HERO3+ and HERO3! The modular cage system was designed to allow the user to build up mounting positions as needed, minimizing weight and bulk. Purchase each component separately. The Cage components are compatible ONLY with the slimmer case released with the HERO3+, so users who have the original HERO3 camera housing will need to update to the HERO3+ Housing or Slim Skeleton Housing.
Use 1-2 of these Cage Side components to add left or right side dovetails and additional ¼"-20 mounting sockets, and allow mounting of the Cage Base component.
NOTE: If you plan to use only one each of Cage Side (CS) and Cage Base (CB), you can have dovetails on either:
1. Right & Top (with lens pointing away from you)
2. Left & Bottom
Using two Cage Sides allows use of the Cage Base on either top or bottom at any time.
Available Components (purchase separately)
Cage Door: this door replaces the acrylic case door that comes stock on the HERO3+ case Item code = BHERO3-PLUS-CD
Cage Side: this side component turns the HERO3+ case into an L-plate! Cage Side mounts to Cage Door. Item code = BHERO3-PLUS-CS
Cage Base: this base component mount to the Cage Side and offers increased support and protection for the HERO3+ case. Item code = BHERO3-PLUS-CB
Our Cage Door Replacement (BHERO3-PLUS-CD) maintains full functionality of the original latch mechanism, even in full cage configuration. This provides users with a very low profile 1.5 inch bi-directional dovetail and ¼"-20 mounting sockets while allowing the batteries and memory cards to be swapped quickly, without requiring any tools. Transfer the original seal for a waterproof depth of 140ft. The remaining plate options attach to the RRS back piece, offering mounting options for RRS standard clamps as well as for our compact X-Jaw Clamp system. The camera and buttons remain accessible with any combination of the full cage assembly.
Transfer the original rubber seal from the GoPro® Hero3+ Housing to maintain waterproofing. WARNING: NOT WATERPROOF WITHOUT IT!
Weight of HERO3+ in stock housing w/ battery = 4.9 oz / 139 g
