/ Using the Mounts
Follow these guidelines when attaching mounts:
• Attach the adhesive mounts at least 24 hours before use. Allow
72 hours for complete adhesion.
• Adhesive mounts must be mounted only on smooth surfaces.
Porous or textured surfaces do not enable a proper bond. When
applying the mount, firmly press it into place and ensure full
contact over the entire surface.
• Apply adhesive mounts to clean surfaces only. Wax, oil, dirt, or
other debris reduce adhesion, which can result in a weak bond
and risk of losing the camera should the connection fail.
• Attach adhesive mounts in room temperature conditions.
Adhesives do not bond properly if applied in cold or damp
environments to cold or damp surfaces.

WARNING: If using your camera with a GoPro helmet mount or
strap, always select a helmet that meets the applicable safety
standard. Choose the right helmet for your particular sport or
activity and make sure that it is the right fit and size for you.
Inspect your helmet to ensure that it is in good condition, and
follow the helmet manufacturer's instructions on safe helmet
use. Any helmet that has sustained a major impact should be
replaced. No helmet can protect against injury in every accident.
