Default Removing GoPro base plates.


For any one that is interested if you have GoPro base plates on your helmet or bike & want to remove them & not your paint I have a simple solution.

All that is required is 1meter of fishing line (basic monofilament) double it over & push it as under one corner of the sticky pad with your finger then just use a sawing motion, the fishing line will find it easier to go under than go through the foam & it comes off clean & easy.

I have a black AGV helmet & can't see a single mark from the removal.

Hope this helps anyone that's needs to do this.

Yep your right, quick preheat will help my lid had been in the sun all day before I removed the base plate.

Thanks. Ive been pondering about it if the time comes to remove it, i also thought about heating it up, but the fishing line trick (+ some heat) should do the trick nicely.

"Goo gone" also works. Soak the mount with it and let it sit. Did it a few times and the mount pealed right off.

A quick blast from a heat gun always made easy work of removing mounts for me.

I also found twisting it helps. I side something like scissors into the mountand carefully twist left to right or vice versa. You can substitute the scissors with something less sharp.
