Remove a GoPro helmet mount?

I bought a DH mtb helmet from a friend and he stuck a GoPro mount on the side. Does anyone have any advice to remove the mount?

Apply heat to it then pull it off, for example with a hairdryer

I've removed a Contour mount a couple of times. Sharp thin paring knife, go slow, be patient.

Yeah I've got a Contour mount on my snow helmet and it seems pretty solid. Like it would leave all of the adhesive on if I just pulled it off. I'll try heating and shaving. I guess I can always WD40 if there is any left. Just looking to avoid the mess if there was an easier option.

I used a wide exacto blade to remove the contour mount. Just worked slowly and lifted a corner, sliced, lifted, sliced, etc. Take your time and it's not bad...
