Aluminum case

I had bottom tab from one of my GoPro Hero 3 housing cracked and I am not willing to take a chance with my GoPro camera using plastic case during my motorcycle rides. I recently purchased aluminum case for my Hero 7 and now I feel much safer if it'll ever landed on the road for whatever reason. Anyone using one and anything you can add or share with the rest? I only use it for as a protection, I don't use it for external mic or lighting, etc...… I also inserted black electrical tap strips to take up slacks of any play (rattle) instead of using lock screw from the side. It fits snug and works very well. I try to use as many aluminum mount parts to eliminate mishaps. Riding a Harley tend to have bad vibration so as extra added security measure I try to use any/all add on parts mostly aluminum for weight concern and all bolt/nut's I use Loctite to secure them. Getting one for my Hero 3 next and Hero Session :-)
