How do I fit the Thudguard properly so it won’t cover my baby’s eyes?

Children have been recorded as starting to walk as early as 7 months old. With this in mind Thudguard was designed to accommodate a small head size of 40cm circumference but may cover the child’s eyes if not positioned correctly. This is easily put right by resting the hat further back on the head to allow a clear view. The chinstrap will keep it in this position. Keep checking that the hat has not been knocked forward or that the child has not pulled it forward. Always make sure that the child can see where she is going.

Rest Thudguard above the eyes and secure with chin strap

Thudguard Keyfacts

Size

This stretchy, comfortable design is suitable for the ages between 7 months to just over 2 years, depending on the size of the child's head, stretching from 40 to 50 centimetres or 16 to 20 inches in circumference. It is recommended to take a measurement of your child's head first to confirm the compatibility of the Thudguard sizing.

Weight

Thudguard is one of the lightest head guards in the world, weighing just less than 100 grams / 3.2 oz. This ultra lightweight design is extremely important for an infant's developing neck muscles.

Materials

Thudguard helps cushion the forehead, side and back of the head. It is made from ultra lightweight High Density Foam and medium weight, soft-spun poly / lycra. This makes it ideal for stretching and keeping the shape of the helmet allowing it to be very durable and easily kept clean.
Any device which helps to reduce the number of head injuries sustained by young children each year is most welcome
