SMH10 Adhesive Patch

On my old helmet I was using the bracket and it was working out pretty good. Standing up to the wind and bouncing. On my new helmet, there was no place to mount the bracket so I'm using the adhesive patch. It's starting to separate from the helmet already and I've only used it for about 4 days. I suppose it's not standing up to the 80mph freeway speeds. Anybody have a similar issue? What was your solution?

I used the stick-on plate on my helmet and my g/f's. Mine held up with never a problem. My g/f's (on the same model helmet) started falling off when it would get hot (like, if the helmet were left on the bike, in the sun, while we ate lunch, for example).

On hers, the adhesive patch was actually sticking to the helmet and the Sena plate was coming off the adhesive patch. I contacted Sena Tech Support and they sent me a new stick-on plate at no charge.

However, before I received it, I figured out that my initial assessment that the regular clamp would not work on our helmets (Bell Vortex) was wrong. So, I fit the regular clamps on both helmets and have had no further problems.

I've used 3M Dual Lock instead of the adhesive patch; it seems to hold up pretty well after two seasons.

I'd like to use the clamp but it just doesn't look possible. There is no gap between the padding and the helmet. I figured it was 3M tape to begin with but I'll try it again.

I used trim tape from Autozone for my scala Q2 and had no problems over a couple of seasons. A change of helmets is why I had to find an alternative as I wasn't going to buy a new glue plate.
