HOW TO INSTALL YOUR CHIN MOUNT:

Step 1.

Please use our product photos as a reference for where your Chin Mount needs to be installed on your helmet. Only install your Chin Mount in the same spot as advertised.

Test the placement of your Chin Mount. Make sure the Chin Mount sits flush with your helmet. We recommend attaching your action camera to the Chin Mount so you can get an idea how it will sit on your helmet.

Step 2.

Using the provided alcohol wipe, wipe down the application area and let the alcohol dry up.

Step 3.

Peel back the VHB adhesive and heat up the adhesive with a blow dryer or a heat gun so it is warm (NOT HOT). Apply pressure evenly across the Chin Mount for 30-60 seconds when installing your Chin Mount.

Sometimes it's possible for small gaps to appear in between the 3M adhesive and the helmet. This is caused by improper placement or not enough pressure used when applying the Chin Mount. To solve this we recommend heating up the area with a blow dryer or heat gun on low heat and applying pressure onto the Chin Mount again. Repeat until the gap goes away.

Step 4.

Let the 3M adhesive bond with your helmets surface for a MINIMUM OF 24 HOURS.  The 3M adhesive needs time to cure properly, DO NOT attach your action camera right away. After 24 hours has gone by you'll want to make sure everything is secure. Test the Chin Mount over a soft surface (bed or couch) with your camera attached to make sure the Chin Mount will not come loose when going for a ride. 

 

HOW TO INSTALL YOUR SAFETY TETHER:

Before peeling off the covering for the adhesive, we recommend testing where you want to mount it on your helmet. The side of your helmet is usually the best spot, just make sure there’s enough distance for the string to reach your GoPro.

Next, peel off the adhesive cover and apply some heat with a blow dryer or heat gun so the adhesive becomes sticky. Then stick it to the desired position on your helmet.

Once it’s secure, loop the tether string through the anchor point and tie it to your GoPro housing or thumb screw.
