Default Glue for helmet pads?

Anyone know what glue I should use to restick my hemet pads? I know a
lot of glues will melt/disolve the foam. Cheer Steve

I've been using a pen-stick SuperGlue to restick the little velcro
tabs on my Giro pneumo. These are the velcro tabs that hold the
sweat/fit/whatever pads in place. I tested it on an outside bit of the
foam and it was just OK. It melted the foam a bit, but it didn't bore
through to the other side. It could be that the volatiles in the glue
are the nasties that melt the foam and maybe they evaporated quickly.
I'm not a chemist.

You could send an email to your helmet's manufacturer. Hmmm ... I'm
going to email Giro :-)

Regards,
Richard.

Why don't you peel out the old velcro dots and replace them with new ones
they are cheap enough. You should be able to get them in hardware and craft
shops.

double sided tape maybe???

My experience has been that the velcro "dots" kept coming unstuck.
Tried new velcro "dots", still kept coming off.
Tried double sided tape, no good.
All the glues I have tested on foam eat through it.
Ended up drilling some fine holes through the foam and sewing the
velcro on with waxed thread.

Regards,

Ted.

My "stick on" velcro dots came off initially, but now superglue holds them
fast to the polystyrene foam. You can safely yank the velcro apart without
removing the stuck dot.

One of my pads in the helmet came off a few weeks ago and before I left work
to ride home I stuck it on with glue from a "roll on" Glue Stick - one of
the yellow ones, not sure of the brand name.
It's still stuck fast!
