Title: Fixing the Headgear
Post by: peregrine on August 13, 2013, 01:30:49 PM
What are some ways people have found to fix the Fencing Masks?
Specifically when the back trim separates from the wire in the back.

I've tried a variety of fixes but over time it continues to detach. It usually involves a needle- nose pliers and
Duct tape, solder and zip ties.

We may have to look into welding or soldering.

Woof Brother Kahuna:

I hope you will forgive me for taking the liberty of editing your post from "helmet" to "headgear" and "mask".

My concern is that the term "helmet" communicates something which is not so-- the idea that the head is fully protected.  As all of us here know, KOs/concussions are quite possible the fencing masks.
