Tripod screw not tapped – Plastic Sensor Wall Mount for XBOX 360 Kinect Reviews

posted by chuank on 01/06/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Good build quality. Metal wall mounting bracket ensures solid attachment. Legs are plastic but sturdy and won't flex.
Cons:
The claimed tripod screw mount on the removable base is there, but it looks like they forgot to tap the metal cylindrical piece embedded in it. Had to use my own 1/4-20 tap to get my tripod screw threads properly done. I suppose this *could* be helpful if you wanted to tap your own custom thread pitch, but for consumers it was a bit tedious, especially if you don't have a screw tap.
Other:
This is a 3-piece set - metal mounting bracket, plastic legs with locking mechanism, and base on which the Kinect snaps to.
Bottomline:
Perfect if you need to simply mount your Kinect to the wall. A bit more work if you need to set it on your tripod.
