was at a track day and mounted my gopro cam on the tail via one of the 3M baseplates and safety tied it just in case it came unglued. turns out the sticky wasnt the weak point.







track has a few bumps, nothing too major. after i finished my session i went back to the pit to discover my camera was gone. i was able to get my camera back and was interested in seeing the footage, however... the dam crash resistant case isnt so resistant, now i have a hero paper weight. will contact the company and see what they say.

I would say call them. I have spoken/ordered direct from them before. They seem like good people plus there product is all over. They seem like the type of company that can make things right. Either way its worth an email or phone call.

Strange, and I hope that they'll replace it for you.

One thing I realized is that the plastic hinge pieces (with the bolt going through it) should not be tightened very tight. Doing so will significantly weaken the plastic at the joints, and fractures in the plastic could happen. I'm not saying this is the case here, but apparently this can happen. Just a heads up for those with the Go Pros.

This is what a buddy of mine suggested on our local moto forum

If anyone has has one of these parts on your gopro mount fail. Then email gopro and they will send you new ones for free. Apparently they had a limited batch of bad plastic. I emailed them to ask them if I could buy just one and they said it is covered under warranty and to discard the other mounts when I got all the new ones.
