Cookie G4 chin mount manual
Step 1: Read through the whole manual from start to finish. Don’t skip this step.
Step 2: Gather all the parts.
Step 3: Remove the clips holding the chin padding in place.
Step 4: Gently pull out the chin padding.
Step 5: If you have access to pliers, now is the time to get them.
If you don’t have access to pliers, insert a nut into the NutTool(TM) (Not actually trademarked). The NutTool might not be sturdy enough to really tighten the screws, so if you have access to pliers that is the preferred tool.
Step 6: Use the pliers or the NutTool to align the nut behind the hole pictured above.
The correct position is the innermost hole on the second row from below, on both sides of the center.
Step 7: While holding the nut in place, place the part of the mount with the screws on the helmet, aligning it with the nut.
Use the allen/hex key to tighten the screws. They should be tight, but don’t try to use your whole body weight as leverage.
You can also use a pair of pliers or a wrench to hold the nut in place if necessary.
Step 8: Place the removable part of the mount on the part you just mounted.
Step 9: Push the cutaway handle through the holes from the bottom. It goes through the removable part, through the mounted part and through the removable part again.
Step 10: Make sure the cutaway handle really is pushed all the way in. You should see the small taps poke up at the top.
Step 11: Reinsert the chin padding.
Step 12: Push it all the way in, make sure the hole you previously removed the plastic clips from are free.
If you are unsure about what hole you’re looking for, refer to step 3 or the “Replacing your G4 Liner” video from Cookie available here.
Step 13: Reinsert the clips.
Step 15: Mount the camera to the mount, securing it with the screw.
After mounting the camera, please pull the cutaway and reinsert it at least 5-10 times. This serves two purposes:
1. It let’s you get a feeling for the force needed to cut away the camera in case of an emergency.
2. It evens out any imperfections in the plastic (FDM based 3D printing is, unfortunately, not a 100% perfect manufacturing technique), making the fit better and cutting away easier.
Pulling the cutaway should be done quickly and forcefully, just like the cutaway handle on your rig.
Congratulations, your camera is now ready for some sweet jumps!
If you have had to cut the camera away in a live emergency, please do not remount it if you manage to find the whole mount again. The cutaway may have been damaged even if it’s not visible to the naked eye.
Instead, send me a message and I will make sure you get a new cutaway.
