Stick on rubber nubs on visor to protect it

While on a trip I saw a rider who had rubber nubs glued to the edges of the visor.

Seems like a good idea if you drop the healmet and it starts rolling it will not scratch the visor.

Anyone knows where you can buy these?

I been eyeing the ones they sell for glass furniture; Can I use those? Is the glue strong enough for a visor?

Interesting concept and I've never heard of it. How many were used and where were they placed?

I have some on a glass top table that would probably work.

The nubbies used on bug deflectors would also work. Canadian Tire will have both.

Interesting idea. Not sure if I would do it, but you can find stuff like that in the hardware stores (Lowes / HD). Look in the hardware isle near where they sell things like felt to put under furniture legs.

At the very top of the visor and on the sides where the hinges are. I didnt get to speak to him becasue he was leaving but I found the idea pretty good since its happened to me at least twice to drop the helmet to see it roll on pavement a fubar my visor in the process.

This would limit that from happeneing.
