If you have a roll bar and a HERO cam, you need this. If you are at all creative, build your own.
The GoPro mount is difficult to install, often won't fit or get the camera close enough to the window to prevent a washed-out image. The thumbscrews are too bulky to really be useful, small knurled metal ones would have been a better choice. The mount does work OK as far as sturdiness for sportscar racing, although it doesn't take much to move it around. One really annoying thing is that you may find yourself having to rearrange the mount to get the latch and door open on the protective case whenever you want to take out the camera.
If I could do it over again, I would save the $30 and cobble something together from two hose clamps and the base of the camera packaging that takes the quick-release mount.
This roll bar mount should be priced at about 6.95 for what you get. I hope GoPro revises this product soon.

First time I used this mount...
By D. Francey
The first use of this mount was on Sunday River downhill biking. I had the thing perfectly secure (used screw driver) mounted to my bike frame. It was mounted from behind where I could not see it. At the bottom of the EASY trail it was missing. The plastic had snapped off this mount, and it wasnt even a joint where screws were, it was in the middle of an adjustment arm. It took 2 runs looking and we finally spotted the camera while on the lift from above before our third walk through. Huge waste of good biking time. I am angry for GoPro charging $30 for a PLASTIC mount. This thing cost no more than $1 in materials and for $30 I expect something that wont break on its first use. MAKE THESE THINGS OUT OF METAL PLEASE. I almost lost a $300 camera and 16GB SD card using OEM/Brand name accessories, that is embarrassing how cheap this thing is based on how GoPro advertises it.

Too flimsy for practical use
This is a flimsy and not well thought out design. Two major problems:
1) Too flimsy. It is made of plastic that bends and stresses when you tighten in down. The cushion rubber pads are lifting after 2 uses because the glue is coming loose. I use it on boat and it does get exposed to water. But the camera was made for harsh condition so the mounts should be too
2) Both screw closures are not fixed. In other words while attaching or detaching the mount one of the screws comes off (can completely detach) and if you drop it and lose it your mount is useless.
I always use a lanyard if my camera can be damaged or lost by a mount failure.
