ACCESSORIES FOR YOUR FLAT TOP PRO
  • Ringsight Swivel - This is the component that attaches the ringsight post to the post on the helmet.
  • Extra Top Plate - If you think you’ll want multiple set-ups that can be quickly changed out, this is the option for you.
  • Extra Liner - For multiple users or when the original wears out (500+ jumps)
  • Camera Strap - Neoprene lined strap to hold down a camera when a box is NOT used.
  • Shark Fin - A tall piece of carbon fiber used for vertically mounting a still camera or used with certain PC D-Boxes to make top mounting easy.
  • Camera Boxes - Camera models change so often, please call to see if a D-Box is available for your particular model. Palmcorder (TRV) Style cameras are best for top mounting, though there is no problem with the PC (upright) style cameras. These boxes protect the camera from lens strikes and some of the elements.

  • Quick Release - Stroboframe 300 QRC - Not available from Square One or Bonehead - get it at any discount camera store
  • Brent Finley Ringsight - for fine tuning your work.
  • Video Light Indicator – Lets you know when your recording. The CamEye II actually controls your Sony camera through the LANC port.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you have different size shells or are they all the same size?
The shells are all the same size. The liner system determines the helmets size.
I hear you have to do some baking to custom fit the helmets.
Do I bake the whole helmet or just the liner?
You only bake the liner.
The helmet doesn’t fit what should I do?
First add or take out liner pieces until the fit is too tight. Then proceed with the baking instructions. If you have baked it and it still does not fit then call us so we can assist you.
My Helmet fits great and I haven’t baked it yet, do I need to?
You should. Even if the helmet seems to fit great after baking it will fit that much better. It will conform to your head.
The right side of the helmet seems wider than the left, is it lopsided?
The right side of the helmet was built out a small amount in order to accommodate the hinge. You find that an extra piece of shim in the right side makes for a better fit.
How heavy is the Flat-Top Pro?
About 40 ounces with liner and top plate.
How large is the Top Plate?
The Standard Top Plate (with ‘L’ bracket) Measures 9.5 inches long x 7 inches wide. The Extended Top Plate Measures 11.5 inches long x 7 inches wide. Custom size plates are available.
Is the helmet easy to work on, what tools would I need?
Yes, the helmet is very easy to work on. A Dremel motor tool with a tungsten carbide bit works the best, however a regular drill works too, masking tape and an allen wrench set.
What is the angle of the top plate?
Approximately 0 Degrees
