Welding hood fittinng

Postby KenK » Thu Nov 02, 2017 10:03 am

I have a question for you guys.

I have a relatively small head (6-7/8). I have several old welding hoods that work for me but my two new ones are to big for me. I have rapped rags around the head band but that is kind of hokey and moderately functional.

Someone out there must be having the same problem. What are you guys doing to get around this problem?? I hate having to hold the hood with one hand to keep it in place

You can get a sheepskin wrap that goes around the forehead strap. It's primarily designed to absorb sweat, but it should also work to tighten things up a bit.

Thanks for the input. I also found one that goes in the back. I think between the two of them, I can get the job done..

Again, Thanks for your input

If that doesn't work out, depending on what hood it is, you might be able to swap the headgear.
