First of all, parents should use a soft tape measure to wrap around the head (the part of the child’s eyebrows 1 inch <2.5cm>), measure the length of the child’s head, and pick the child’s suitable helmet. Then follow the three steps below to help your child wear a helmet.
Wear the helmet firmly and make sure it doesn’t shake. This action is effortless and takes only 5 minutes. At the time of purchase, ask the salesperson how to adjust the strap. Through the professional demonstration of the salesperson, understand the correct way to wear and observe the appearance of the child after wearing.
When wearing the helmet, don’t exposed the child’s forehead , and the helmet should be worn horizontally and cannot be tilted forward. Most people wear hard to wear behind the head, revealing the forehead, and this is the mistake most people make. If they accidentally hit the handlebars, this would not protect the head. In fact, the helmet’s brim should be about 1 cm higher than the eyebrows. In the case of not obstructing the line of sight, the low position can protect the forehead that may be injured during an impact collision.
Check that the adjustment strap is comfortable and adjust the tightness. When helping children with the buckle, confirm their heads are free to turn, and ask them to look up or down to see if the child can breathe smoothly. The adjustment belt needs to be fastened, which is ignored by many parents. Between the neck and the adjustment strap, it is sufficient to leave a finger-sized gap. If it is too loose, it may be offset when hitting, and the head cannot be protected, which increases safety hazards.
At the same time, we suggested parents takes time to check the child’s helmet every week to determine whether the adjustment belt is running or deformed. Before riding, check again if the child has fastened the adjustment strap. Don’t be accidental because of the carelessness of the moment.
