I started off with the sticky pads and a lanyard, just in case, like. One on the console, one on the flat plate atop the A frame.
Rest assured, the sticky pads are like sh!t to a blanket to the point where I've given up with the lanyard as it was a pain to fit tightly and if it wasn't fitted tightly it thrashed around at speed and screwed up the audio recording.
GoPro now sell a foam device
that sticks onto the camera housing...if the camera does fall off, at least it floats. Just as long as you know where
They also sell a roll bar mount
- as in race car roll cages - that is a U-bolt type device that mechanically attaches to A frame tubing. It comes in several sizes...if you go that route check the dimensions on the Go Pro website first or talk to the guys at DogCamSport
- they're very helpful
