Hello guys :)
I need some help, please...I have used TrackIR 5 now for about 5-6 years with the hat clip and still think it's the best out there :) I'm finding that on the hat clip the stick-on Infrared Reflective Tape lasts about three years and I'm on my second hat clip now...All I want to know is, where can I buy just the stick-on tape for the hat clip, without having to purchase yet another hat clip? All I can find in my searching is just stick-on Reflective Tape for bikes, cars, or the sew-on sort for jackets :? Please can someone help with this 8-)
Thanks
Swifty :)

I'm gonna be trying some reflective tape I have ordered from Wish.com just have to wait some weeks for delivery, in the meantime can the developers of trackir say what tape they use, and where to purchase this? That would be fantastic, especially for existing customers ;)

It seems with everyone's good intention there's that BIG some old problem over again but nobody's fault called "SHIPPING" :roll:
What I want to purchase cost just £2.00 and since I live in the United Kingdom Optitrack.com requires £50.00 Shipping, I look for a distributor in the UK and is a little better with Shipping, but still, they want on any order there will be a minimum charge of £30 for shipping. :roll:
I don't get it really, for a 12-inch piece of sticky tape that costs just £2.00 and weighs in at less than a peacock feather will cost me £2.00 + £30.00 shipping :shock: :o I know it's no one's fault, it is what it is...But I can't get my brain around it... :evil: :x :roll:...Never mind, I'll wait and see what Wish.com comes up with...
Oh, and BTW, all the tape (6 different types and all full 50meter rolls) from Wish.com are FREE just pay shipping @£1.00 per item =£6.00 all coming from China :| Try and explain that one... ;)

But thanks for everyone's help it is appreciated :)
