How to Mount the Camera

  1. Take your hard hat and clean the surface where the sticky pad is going to be applied - this will be the highest central point of the hard hat.

  2. Take the sticky pad and stick the brown side down onto the highest, central point of the hard hat.

  3. Take the metal washer and place the slightly concave face onto the sticky pad. Pro-tip: We apply some glue to the washer to improve the adhesion between it and the sticky pad - we strongly recommend you do the same.

  4. Ideally the washer needs 24 hours to adhere to the sticky pad for 24 hours before attaching the mount and camera.

  5. Affix the camera into the mount provided and place onto the metal washer. The bottom of the mount is magnetic allowing you to attach and remove the camera easily. Pro-tip: when adjusting or removing the camera it’s often easier to twist and slide the mount rather than pull it.

  6. Once the camera is secure in the mount you received, place the Insta360 on the hardhat with the camera lens facing forward. You are now able to start capturing!

Note: if you are applying the 3M sticky to your own hard hat please allow up to 72 hours for curing, as recommended by the manufacturer. Improper curing time could lead to the camera falling and becoming unusable.
