Basically, there are happy turtles and there are dead turtles and helmets should always be placed in the happy position.
Happy helmets stick around, while dead helmets have a tendency to slide down the rock.
Of course you could always clip the helmet to something, but it can be much easier to just place it in the happy position.
Finally, you should never sit on a helmet as that can damage it.
