Apologies in advance for the endless headlamp posts. Perhaps I’m making up for lost time? No more reason than increased SAR involvement (mandatory helmet) as well as frequent night skiing on icy hills. In both cases, headlamp mounting is the bugbear (I want it securely mounted yet quickly removable). A kind reader here suggested the powerful Scotch All-Weather hook-loop (generically known as “velcro”). I’m happy to report this stuff indeed provides something resembling an atomic bond. Just remember to clean surfaces with rubbing alcohol before application. Wait 24 hours then test attachment strength at home. Ninety-nine percent you’ll be good to go.
