Portable Mount for outside projector use
 
I'm searched but maybe I'm not using the right terms. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction.

Right now we like to take the projector outside in the front yard on a work table, project against the garage, add an external speaker and watch movies outside.

This works great except I have this anxiety about someone bumping the table over and the projector and other equipment goes flying.

Any ideas or what has anyone done to make this a little more seamless while also securing it?

Thanks for the help

Josh

You could do a rear projection from inside the garage. Not sure if that would kill the brightness.

Sorry, I should have specified. I already have a projector, Epson 2040, just need a secure way to move it in and out and keep it safe.

Thanks

The 2040 can do rear projection.

I would suggest using 1 layer of light grey spandex to project onto from behind. Like gregoryperkins suggested this would keep all the equipment in the garage out of harms way. The sound also goes through the spandex.

This is how I do my outdoor movies. I bungee the spandex to the garage door rails. Works great!

Bingo. Never tried it myself, but I've seen the option on my projectors.
