You have to replace the "prongs" that go around the lip of the helmet. I believe Brad sells the conversion kit. The "prong" is held on by two torix screws. Unless you plan on using the NVG mount strap, you'll have to drill a hole in the helmet in the front.

Careful when you screw that mount on to the Helmet. If you fasten it too tightly the slot for the screw on the mount will crack, and you will have to use the strap.

Be sure to also dummy cord the NOD's as the mount can break in the right circumstances.

I have heard of a website by 3M called 'this to that.com' that talks about types of adhesives to use for all kinds of different applications. I wonder if in this case an adhesive might be a better idea. I have just seen too many of those mounts broken over here in the middle east.

I wonder when those new helmets are going to be fielded to my unit. I have been putting off buying a new suspension system from Oregon Aero because its $127 and the fact that we are supposed to get new helmets someday.

I am wondering how the adhesive would hold up in the heat -- would the adhesive end up melting and later on not being useable at all? Anyone have any experience at all with it...i'd appreciate your comments.

When my unit got issued TC2002's they didn't have holes. The gov't was footing the guinea pig bill so we said screw it and just drilled holes in them. It's actually easier than drilling wood or metal. Don't be afraid. just make sure it's in the right spot.
