I don't have a pic but this is what I did on my Arai, since I like my shield up at all times and the locks are not strong enough. I just used self sticking velcro and put a small piece on the top of the helmet and one on the very top of the shield with a long enough tail that I could grab with my gloves in case the rain started to hard so I could lower it if needed, with the longer tail you can adjust the shield a click or two. Been working great for years now and it never slams shut on me now, this sounds like what your looking for.

Re: tricks for face shield

I use a large o-ring around the shield where it connects to the helmet... Works well depending on the helmet you have.
