    I wonder what everyone is using to hold their HMD when getting in and out of the rig.
    I would like a way to mount it to the top of the chair just above my head.
    I have seen several devices on Amazon but nothing that really stood out.
    It seems like such a simple solution but I am trying to avoid drilling multiple holes in the back of my fiberglass race seat in an attempt to get it right.

    Usually I just seem to end up with a little table or chair nearby and rest it on that. In one rig I attached a guitar hanger to the steering support (just drilled the holes wider and bolted it right to the 80/20) but it was a little in the way when getting in and out of the rig.

    For day-to-day storage in my walkable VR area I use pegboard hooks with some padding. In this case the Vive wands have magnetic adapters on the charging port so when you rest them on the hooks the power cables snap into place.

    If you want to test-mount things without drilling, you can get camera clamps such as this one which are tapped for various sized screws.
