Unlike a lot of other mounts, which use a combination of velcro and glue, this one uses two fabric "tapes" with snap-lock fasteners. The tapes are of generous length which means that they are highly adaptable to whatever the vent-spacing on your helmet happens to be. Fitting them is easy, loop the tapes through the vents, run them through the plastic snap-locks and clicp them tight. Stability of the camera comes from cinching the tapes up nice and tight, which the snap-lock connectors make easy work of. Using the tapes to mount also means that it's easy to get the lens positioned just how you want it on the helmet - central or to one side - just by adjusting the tape lengths.
Once mouinted there's even some fine-tuning of the camera angle built into the mount, allowing a few degrees of up/down tilt.
The mount uses Contour's "TRail" system which provides for an extremely secure atttachment of the camera to the mount itself - in fact I'd recommend putting the camera on the mount before attaching the mount to your helmet. Likewise, unmount the whole setup from the helmet before trying to remove the camera - the TRail system keeps a tight hold of tings. So far the vented helmet mount has held firm and provided great footage from some seriously bumpy mountain bike riding without budging, including hits from branches etc.
This is easily the best helmet mounting platform I've come across for cycling helmets so far and a great option for your Contour camera. Highly recommended.

I fixed the problem by removing the pin and putting a rubber-band between the pin and the half-round seat in the camera-mount, then cutting the rubber band after the pin was mostly slid into the helmet-mount. Then I used a thin-bladed screw driver to push the pin completely into the helmet-mount. This is something of a temporary solution, as the rubber will eventually degrade and loosen. But for now, I have an interference fit between the pin and the plastic parts.
1. you have to have the straps cross several vents in order for the strap clips to be flat and be able to tighten the straps effectively
2. you have to really tighten the straps until you can't wiggle the platform. That should be obvious, but remember it will get jostled a lot more on your bike than when you're holding it.
I will load a pick of how mine is setup, but basically the flat mount is on the top of my helmet, and the straps go down the sides for about 2"-3" on each side. That was the only way it really kept stable. It didn't work so well trying to put the camera on the side of the helmet. Doing it that way meant one of the clips that hold the straps in place would be in a weird position and difficult to tighten properly.
Once i had it set up like that, I've had no problems with it, and the pictures are great. I may still end up buying the handlebar mount anyway though, since you move your head around a lot more than you realize, and you really can't watch the videos without getting motion sickness. But that is no fault of the product, just whether you mount it on the bike or on your head.
All in all, this is the mount to get for a regular vented bike hemet though as an aside you need your helmet quite snug or you get too muck camera shake.
