• SIZE: Measure your head to determine your size. Place the helmet level on your head. Now adjust
  • POSTITION: Your helmet should sit level on your head about one or two finger-widths above your eyebrow.
  • SIDE STRAPS: Straps should be adjusted to form a "V" shape under and slightly in front of your ears.
  • BUCKLES: Center the left buckle under the chin. Most helmets have straps that can be pulled from the back to lengthen or shorten the chin strap.
  • CHIN STRAP: Buckle  the chin strap and tighten until it is snug so that no more than two fingers fit under the strap.
  • FINAL FITTING: The helmet should pull down on your head when you open your mouth wide. The helmet should NOT rock back and forth or side to side. If needed. re-adjust the straps again to get a proper fit.
  • Helmets should never be bought for your child to grow into.
  • Helmets should be replaced when your child has outgrown the helmet, has wrecked in the helmet, or the helmet has been dropped on a hard surface.


Every helmet can save a life.
