    Default Tips needed for reflective tetrahedrons

    I can't seem to get my new tetrahedrons to stick on my helmet. It's only 3 though that are giving my problems.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to get these three to stick for good?

    Clean the area where your placing them with alcahol. The little alcahol pads they use to clean your skin before injections work great. Let the Alcahol air dry and then stick them on.

    Lightbulb Hmmmm................

    Are you required to use them?............. I use Scotchlite Reflective Tape on mine, works well, and more reflective surface than a set of tets........

    Check out the "Helmet Pic" thread on the Off Duty Forums........ LOTS of good ideas there...........

    I have used a small dab of super glue to re-stick peeling stickers. Haven't had them come off again yet. Just don't use too much.
