Default Helmet with Quick Strap - repair question

Kind of a dumb question, but figured I'd ask before I do this today. I've got a Quick Strap goggle setup on my helmet and noticed on our last ride the adhesive to the patch that serves as the "snap", securing the goggle to the helmet, is giving away. I was thinking I'd remove it, use some Goo-Gone or WD40 to clean up the spot, and then just use super glue to put it back in place. Any other, better, suggestions?

Clean after with rubbing alcohol.
Get a good quality 3m double sided tape (automotive style).
Use hair dryer to heat it up properly before application.
Should last for years.

You can do as Rubrsidedown suggested or pick up a repair kit. Assuming your talking about the stud side.

Randy Nagel probably has them at his store in Plainview, MN.

For anyone using Quick Straps it never hurts to have a spare remount kit in an inner coat pocket or windshield bag. I've had two occasions in 21 years of using goggles that they let loose in -20 or better weather in MN and WI. I keep the original strap with me and install it until we get to a restaurant or tavern to warm my helmet up and apply the new Quick Strap mounts. Try to keep track of them, I had so many stashed in various pockets and bags I found 6 spares this year while sorting gear.

I do the same as well and carry my extra parts in a ziplock bag, I carry extra lenses too on the sled!

Chris, It might help to reduce the strap tension a bit too!

I stopped using quick straps for that reason. ALWAYS carry a spare for both sides and some duct tape to use as a make shift strap if you need one. I prefer just plain goggle straps, but probably because I am always assuming those will fail now.

Good feedback guys, thanks for all of it! I picked up some new adhesive yesterday after work, but I'm going to give M&M a call to see if they have any Quick Strap sets in stock. If not, I'll have to stick with the adhesive. I do keep the goggle strap in my windshield bag, in case of emergency so if all else fails there is that. But I like the setup as it is, so would prefer to keep it working. Thanks again!

Give John a call up at 61 in Hastings I think he has some quick strap stuff too if needed Chris!
Ive had the same quick strap on my helmet since 06, just replaced the adhesive patch on the left side of my helmet this year for the first time, I wore my helmet almost every day when I worked out west and never had any issues with my quick strap accessories!

Good luck!

Wish my goggles allowed a strap change. Then I'd go back to them.
