Trouble Removing GoPro from Vented Helmet Strap Mount

[ New ]

Maybe it's my feeble fingers, but I really have a hard time removing my GoPro from my vented helmet strap mount.  Getting the camera on is no trouble, but I have trouble squeezing the "prongs" (or whatever they're called) and pushing the camera off the mount.  Has anyone had similar issues?  Has anyone discovered a mild lubricant that might help slide it off?  I've thought of WD-40 but I'm concerned it might chew up the plastic.  Would it be worth trying talcum powder?  If anyone has had similar issues and managed to find a fix, I'd love to hear about it.

 

Thanks!

Hi @swiftshore426

 

Just make sure to press on the prongs enough to release the buckle.

You may also check this video, Though an older version, the mechanism is the same.

Perhaps other members can also share some tips or ideas.  

Let us continue to watch out for more replies.

 

Thanks!
