Gopro Helmet Hero

Hey guys hate to make another gopro thread but obviously...It happened. I tried using the stickys they give but it fell off very quickly. So my question is, would gorilla glue or super glue keep the sticky mount on the helmet in the cold wet conditions. Any other ideas how to mount them onto the helmet, maybe apoxy?

weird, are yo sure you used the round sticky for the helmet and not the flat one … as the 3m glue is very strong, I am surprised your's fell off, because I face planted, and fell multiple times where my head was whipping all over the place while I had the camera mounted and it didn't fall off …

it also helps if you let the adhesive sit overnight …

weird…

Really? Maybe I just need to try another one than...You used the oval kind of shaped one not the rectangular one? I let it sit over night and it still came off the next day though it was raining and cold..Did you put it towards the front or directly on top of the helmet?

i used the rectangular one which is contoured to the shape of your helmet … the rounded one is flat …

I placed mine near the top, symmetrically to the middle of the helmet ..

I had my gopro come off on a couple of impacts. I ended up applying superglue around the 3M pad and they haven't come off since.
