    GoPro Mounting Hardware (w/ HD Cam)

    Ok, I'm pretty good with this, usually! I've been using the GoPro Wide and Vio "lipstick" cams and all their mountings, etc., for several years now. I just yesterday received my GoPro HD, and after some brief testing, am very impressed. (no memory card issues, etc., no issues at all.)

    So, I'm going through all the mounts and such that I got (including the Roll Bar kit), to combine them with the multitude of mounts I have, and I see with the new HD cam mounts that there is then small orange rubber "U" shaped bit with "GoPro" molded into it. For the life of me I'm not exactly sure what this is for. Checked the GoPro site for documentation, but can't find anything. Just an interesting little piece. What is it for ?

    That orange rubber piece locks your mounts together. It's hard to explain without a photo but the two prongs on the sliding mount go into the receptacle of the mounting base there is a horseshoe void. The orange rubber piece goes in there to lock the pieces together preventing accidental loss of the camera and prevents vibration and additional noise.

    EDIT- VRHolder REALLY REALLY needs something like this.

    GOT IT! Yes, I see it fits in to take up the space (keeping you from pinching together and releasing!).

    Thank you both!

    Is this helmet-mount only? Doesn't seem to fit with the chest mount.

    +1 on that video. I've been trying to figure out what that thing was for since Christmas morning.
