I also found this for another option of securing your gopro:

Yeah, I was glad I had a lanyard on mine last season when I did this:
50-50 to concussion
In my case, the adhesive mount tore the finish off the helmet, so I couldn't blame the adhesive.
Sorry to hear you lost yours, OP.

Also, here's somthing I did for mounting my contour last year. Instead of using the 3m adhesive, I peeled that off and put this stuff on the mount and then also the helmet (obviously cut to the size of the mount:
Dual Lock Reclosable Fastener :3M US
It doesn't help with losing the camera, you still need a lanyard of sorts. However, I only bring it up in case yours does get knocked off and you're fortunate to find it. My contour got knocked off last year on the first run of the day. I couldn't put it back on so I was done with POV footage for the day. With this, if it gets knocked off, I just pop it back on and go my merry way. However, I did notice that it never got knocked off afterwards.
In case someone wasn't aware, if you're going to use the adhesive, do it at room temperature at least the night before. That way the adhesive has more time to cure and form a better bond.
I recently bought a gopro hero3 black edition. You can bet i'm going to find a good way to secure it if the mount fails. I'm quite scared to lose a $400 toy. :s

|Kapn.K||I never mounted mine because I tend to land on my head more than others. I took a lanyard/wrist strap from an old point&shoot and looped it through the mounting ears on the case. I just hold it with the strap around my wrist.|

Have to say I agree with AI rider here. It can be nice footage if someone wearing one is riding behind their buddy, but even sick pow lines look pretty dull to me in helmet cam mode.
Maybe a few seconds here and there like in TAO Flight but long runs are dull and you don't get a feel for how that person really rides.
Each to their own I guess.
