    I went with a simple option that’ll work with most lights…

    Just a wee bit of handlebar stuck to a gopro foot! It’s a wee bit tall, though.

    If I was to do it again I’d score the tube for extra grip- I ended up sticking on a bit of wet and dry paper as the light slipped a wee bit when getting really knocked around. (but, tbh, it took a real shaking to do it, night downhill!)

    I like that. Did you just chop the buckle mount a bit and glue it on top?

    I was half thinking of chopping the splines off and screwing/gluing the light straight onto a buckle, reckon that would work? Or would I need a booster to keep the flexible buckle bits from pressing on the bottom of the light?

    Nah, I went a bit over-industrial, left the mount original and cut a wee hole in the bar, then filled it with araldite. Basically indestructible.

    I reckon your approach would work, I wanted vertical tilt for different helmets though. Easy to see other ways to do it- I might go back to it this year and do something a bit less OTT.

    So with lots of people buying these cheapie chinese lights atm, I am hoping someone with a bit more imagination than me has managed to utilise a GoPro mount system to clip their light to helmet.

    So if anyone has done this. Or has any good ideas, fire away!

    I am mainly thinking SolarStorm lights. They have a flat bottom and bolt hole, so should be a good place to start!

    Pics would be great!

    I use hope bar and helmet mounts, bar universal kit from CRC
    Same single bolt fixing.
