Seems more products these days don't include written instructions but instead rely on diagrams, which are not always as intuitive or informational as desired. Despite that, it seemed easy enough to figure out the installation process and was simple to do. This is a product that one installs and intends to leave on/in place at all times. You don't really want to be taking it off and putting back on. Personally I have no problem with that, but one should check it from time to time to make sure it's still tight and intact. I have not noticed any loosening as yet, after about 5 weeks of use. I use it for lighting, which by the way is supposedly specific only to Light & Motion lights.

Its awesome that Smith thought to add in a place to mount an action camera or a light, but the implementation was done very poorly. The mount attaches to the helmet via a screw in the front of the mount and double sided tape in the rear. The very first time I used the mount for an action camera, the double sided tape came loose and I could feel the camera "knocking" on my helmet as it flexed. It would have been much better for smith to use a slot to slide the rear of the mount into and then the screw in the front to hold it in place. I did clean the helmet thoroughly with alcohol where the double sided tape sticks to, but its just too small of a piece of tape to hold any camera or light with weight.

Very good, if you know what you're buying

Comments about Smith Forefront Camera & Light Mount:

Firstly, despite the description here, it isn't a 'universal fit' for all lights. At Smith's site, they say what works with it and the word 'universal' isn't used. Basically, if it's a rubber-band-type mount, it fits (Light & Motion, some NiteRider, etc.). If it's a thicker, hard plastic mount, it probably won't. That being said, it works just as it should. It snaps in and out easily, and stays put (especially if you use better two-sided tape than it comes with). Since the Forefront (which is a great helmet) doesn't work with strap-through-vent mounts, this is the only way to go, and it does the job. No, it doesn't work with everything, but Smith doesn't claim it will.

The go-pro attachement works flawlessly. Haven't tried the light mount so can't comment.

      Comments about Smith Forefront Camera & Light Mount:

      Admittedly, I'm pretty bummed. I have been a big fan of my Smith Forefront helmet. I purchased this "universal adapter" so that I could use my NiteRider Lumina 750. Unfortunately, the light does not fit on the adapter. It's now bonded to my helmet, so probably no chance to return it.

        Great all around helmet. Integrated helmet mount is really nice. Chin straps are ok, but they are better on my Specialized helmet.

            My go pro mounts well and doesn't feel heavy towards the front like my Tld turbo Helmet did. The forefront helmet is comfortable and the mount is centered nicely. Not so sure about the single silide in bolt mount to secure the fitting but it might stand up longer than I expect. Overall is a great idea, better than straps running through vents. The forefront is a winner in my books.
