I have an action camera Bullet hd jet gt bullet hd jet gt

and a helmet enter image description here

What's the best way to install an action camera on a such a curved surface? Default binding with 3M come off and it seems that simple default solution can be dangerous for a camera.

Also I wish to avoid creation of additional holes in the helmet.

At first glance you could thread cable ties through the vent holes on the side of the helmet to make a loop (get them from the electrical section of any hardware store).

From there you could use additional long cable ties or straps mounted to the curved camera base (that came with the camera) to pass through the previously made side of helmet loops.

It won't look pretty, but it could work.
