andrewc should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
A secondary tether would be cable ties around the clamp to the cage to prevent that coming loose easily, and then something on the camera itself to tether that should it break loose - something that doesn't make it awkward to use. Something on a short flexible tether that can be unclipped, or failing that the racers solution - gaffer tape.

Use locking wire? Pictures would be good!


Not sure if you got this sorted or not? We use a wire tether. If you search for "go pro wire tether" in google you will see a load. They work really well, cheap and don't interfere with operations.

I've seen a few cameras leave their mounts in crashes. It is worth getting something along these lines for the sake safety and your investment.
