I love this mount for helmet attachments when I inline skate or bike ride, but the real magic of this particular mount is its versatility. When I want to mount a camera in a stationary position (i.e. above looking out at the action), this is the way to go. For instance, when I record my serves in tennis, I mount the camera on the chain link fence surrounding the court and it holds incredibly well while at the same time being easy to install. Initially, when I got the urge to record my serves, I thought of using the Roll Bar mount around the narrow twists in the chain link fence and that became a pain. With the vented helmet mount, I simply slipped the nylon straps around the wide part of the chain links and proceeding to tighten them down. The camera doesn't slip at all over time, even when I hit record around 40 times during a practice session to create new clips.
