put some rubber un the bottom of the caster so that when you reach the limits of travel you dont get sound of bar bouncing transmitted to the camera
try some soft rubber first, too hard and it will do the same thing

I was always wanted swivel mount for my gopro. The caster sheel is cheap and may work good for the purpose but IMHO is ugly as hell
I made something that looks better but never tested it because my season lasted 1 hour before I broke my shoulder joint. It is 90% done just did not instsll the arm an did not mount it to the helmet but the swivel head is ready and sits somewhere arround me. At least it looks cooler
i will find it ad will post picture of it. If you like it will post all the components and where to get them. It is not as cheap as caster wheel but I like it better. I wonted to test it before share it here but since you oppened the subject I will dhare pics, parts list and how to make it.

Here we go.
All the parts are aluminum, screws are stainless since they are going to have some contact with water.
The small aluminum pipe that is attached will hold the arms attached by clamps so it will be easy for transportation. For counterweight I found nice stainless steel shaft collars of ebay for excellent price.
The whole setup on the pics weights about 1 oz and is very strong. Let me know if you like it and I will post all the parts and where to get them. For the total price I have to check all the parts prices but for the head as pictured without the mount at the bottom it was around $50 in parts but have to check again.

what do you do if you don't wear a helmet?
