I have a camcorder that I use a Rode Filmmaker wireless mic with.

I also have a tripod for the camcorder.

But I cannot seem to find a decent way to mount the wireless receiver.

A little help?

What model of camcorder are you using?  It looks like the Rode Filmmaker receiver is designed to mount onto the hot shoe that is most DSLR and similar cameras, but if you're using a camcorder that doesn't have a hot/cold shoe then mounting could be an issue.  One idea would be to get a clamp with a 1/4" thread on it (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/824360-REG/impact_cc_106r_super_clamp_with_ratchet.html) along with a cold shoe that can thread onto the clamp (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/828816-REG/Vello_CS_20_Cold_Shoe_Mount.html)

These products are suggestions, there are other similar options that could also work.

Just what I'm looking for.
Thanks...
My Camcorder has a mini shoe and the Rode is a full size "circle?"

So with those details, if you're not using the shoe for anything else, you could also look at a mini to full shoe adapter (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/742993-REG/Pearstone_CSA_II_CSA_II_Shoe_Adapter_for.html) or, looking at the specs on the Rode a little closer you could also use a clamp and direct mount with a 3/8 stud rather than the shoe adapter which would probably be more secure.  You'd still use the clamp from my original post, but you'd also get a 3/8" stud to replace the 1/4 stud that comes with it (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/824363-REG/Impact_srp_105_Standard_Stud_for_Super.html)

As before the links are suggestions to get you looking at options, depending on your exact application one option may be better than another...
