If the chin strap is stretchy, can my child remove the hat?

We battled with the concept of using a "child proof" chin strap but the risk of childhood strangulation from chin strap snagging was more than we cared to risk therefore, we went with a stretchy chin strap that would release on the weight of the average toddler for a quick escape.  A determined toddler will remove any hat and surely it's best to have this than run the risk of a forced garment around an infant's throat!  A green tab at the release end of the chin strap indentifies the area quickly and allows for a faster aided removal of the garment by the parent or carer of the child, who should be present at all times - this green tab is in keeping with British Standards.

We believe that a baby or toddler should not be forced and made to wear anything that distresses the child.

If the Thudguard does not become acceptable to your child please return for a full refund (see our Terms & Conditions for returns).

Thudguard Keyfacts


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.


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.


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.
