New Camera Mounting System

I was on the BAR-STOOL thinking of a better way to mount a camera that you could point it anywhere. I got to looking around the shop and found the plastic coolent hose. The hose comes in two sizes and I used the smaler size. I had this camera laying around so I made a mount for it to see if it would work. Looks like it will work great.

Neat use of shop fodder. Is that really strong enough to hold position?

Pic 4 looks like SERIOUS drag.

Are the adjustable segments simply a friction fit, or is there some sort of internal cinching mechanism?
