Cheap hack to keep the faceshield propped open at speed

I am going to try this out and report back, starting by putting one on the left side of the helmet. If you want to see a picture of the furniture slider, google "Waxman Furniture Slider".
I tried this cheap hack and it worked. I bought the furniture sliders and built up a few layers until there was enough tension against the faceshield. Now it does stay open in the first and second positions even at highway speeds. Here is a picture of the felt pads with the faceshield removed.
