Son's handle bar mount worked fine on the top rail of the screen but wasn't quite big enough to go around the 2" A frame. That'd need to be the roll bar mount I think.

If your getting confused go into jessops to get a good idea! they stock everything in there & even if you dont buy there itll give you an idea. i got a hero 2 motorsports edition off ebay with a years warrenty for 185. Use it on my thundercat & you can mount it almost anywhere! even have a mount underneath the boat & it stays put! the sticky pads can be removed with a hair dryer if you decide you want rid of them so nothings perminent you put on. And the suction mounts very good! .......one thing i would say though if your using it on the boat....get a float for it & make a lease cause without a float the sink like bricks

& also to solve that vibrating sound with the clip in mounts. theres a white rubber thing that looks like a nose plug. once the mount is clipped into the sticky plates you push the rubber mount into the the gap to secure it. For leashes ive found that a boat kill cord works pretty well

Thats ace ..I had no idea Jessops carry the stuff as when I have searched for places online that I can go into nothing comes up .

Was one round Poole way or another you went into ?

The Go Pro mounts that came with my camera had a soft plastic widget - in the foreground of the picture in the link - that you press into the interface between self adhesive mount and camera mount. Takes up all the slack

Edit: Oops ... repeating what Luke said above

Not concerned by how strong they secure, sure they are great. Just need it to be interchangeable between boats easily with having to buy extra pads, or leave pads on boats that leave.

Will pop into local retailer for a butchers when I get chance.

As GoPro (or other manufacturers??) dont make a swivel mount, I have had to mount two sticky pads at right angles, thus. Not worried about leaving them on as I will use a hot-air gun to remove them.
