This winter has been the winter of gear failure. I’ve had two zippers on riding pants fail, a zipper on my coat, my temperature controller, and the top buckle for my GoPro HD camera. I was surprised when it broke; the GoPro is extremely sturdy.
The top buckle seals the two halves of the housing together. It broke when trying to close it last weekend. All of the mounts attach to the housing, so it is near impossible to use the camera on my Ural without it.
I emailed GoPro with the above photo and a copy of my receipt. They wrote me back the next business day and told me they were going to send out a new buckle under my one year warranty. I’m lucky as the warranty runs up at the end of this month!
It arrived today, and I am back in business for making videos. A very timely fix as I will be filming some ice racing this weekend. I’m impressed with how fast the warranty service was. Thanks GoPro!!
