While using the stick on helmet mounts with my gopro the clip that slides in does not seam to fit properly. When i watch it back there is a terrible sound of rattle because the clip does not fit perfectly snug into the mount. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it??
Thanks

There's a little rubber plug

There's a little rubber plug (either white or orange) that should have came with the camera originally. I think it also comes with the bag of mounts, but not sure. It plugs into the plastic clip on the mount and then causes a snug fit when clipped in. Here's a pic of mine...

Maybe it's just me, but those little rubber anti-rattle plugs are ridiculously difficult to insert.

You can also lay a sheet of

You can also lay a sheet of paper down on the mount and then lock/snap the two pices together or even add a layer of black elecitrician's tape to make the two pieces click together more snugly and eliminating the use of the nose plug apparatus.

I also have the problem with the helmet mount kit. I used it on my Kawi BF 750 ATV. I placed it on the cowl. It rattled constantly in all terrains. I then changed back to the original buckle and that cured the problem except in really rough places in the Santa Rita Mountains of SE AZ. I believe the helmet buckle is the culprit. I suggest a thin piece of really slick cloth as a cushion. I will try that if I decide to use the helmet buckle again. GOOD luck.

Another possibility>>the curved stick on mount has a curved plate that the flat buckle fits into...ergo the flat buckle is sitting on a curved surface. That would leave plenty of room for the buckle to vibrate. This might account for the rattle. I am going to try it out tomorrow in the Santa Ritas of AZ.

The GoPro nose plug should do the trick, but if you can't or don't want to deal with it, get a package of those plastic tooth picks that have the dental floss on them. the ones that the "handle" is flat and shaped like a wedge. Cut a bit of the handle off and wedge it between the helmet mount and the camera clip. Not the best solution, but it will tighten things up completely.

I think I solved the problem. I stuck a piece of duct tape on the surface and literally forced the buckle in. If that doesn't do it, I will use Gorilla glue which swells upon drying. Be aware that the buckle is then permanent. I am just leaving a buckle and stick on in place all the time.
