I have had a mount on the top of my HJC modular helmet for over 3 years now. Believe me, once its installed on your helmet it's there until you buy a new helmet.

I'd tether the camera housing to the mount. On a get off the camera housing it more likely to break off before the black mount ever comes off that helmet. Use a fishing line with lead oval compression sleeve or go to a big box outlet like Lowe's or Home Depot to get some 1/32" or 1/16" cable w/oval compression sleeves.

One of the beautiful things about riding solo is the quality of the social experience.
