    Dec 26, 2002, 8:27 AM - Rangefinder will not stay up #1

    I just got a 96 or 97 Don Post helmet. I has been repainted and the rang finder will not stay up. Any ideas? I am trying to keep from painting it again.

    Asok you may want to try to remove the ear cap piece and add a small screw and washer to the rangefinder. This will still allow it to move up and down but will hold it secure also.

    Something that works temporary is to wedge a Guitar pick on the side. Thats what I'm doing until I can fix it! Works great!

    I have the exact same problem. I just stuck a bit of carboard between the rangefinder and helmet. Works pretty well for me.

    Come on guys,

    Lay off . . . it happens to every guy at some point in time.

    I mean, it hasn't happened to me, but, that's what they say!

    I wrapped my DP stalk with aluminum tape. Makes it shiney and helps keep it snug.
