Use light stands to mount the base stations
One of the biggest obstacles for new Vive users is setting up a space to use it. In addition to clearing out a space to walk around in, users will also need to place the base stations (which track movement in the play area) at least six feet off the ground.
While there are many ways to do this, including wall mounting, we have found light stands — such as those used for photography — to be a convenient tool. The base stations can screw into the ¼-inch mount, and light stands not only offer height but are easy to move around if need be.
