How to wear a cycling helmet properly for Children
Most people find it easy to wear a helmet for children, but most people still make mistakes. Today Pete, the manager of bicycle retail business, advises parents: how to properly wear helmets for children.
Most parents will go into a misunderstanding, thinking that as long as the child wears a helmet, everything is fine, and it is safer to ride “bare” without a helmet. This statement is obviously only half right. In fact, whether it is an adult or a child, once the helmet is worn incorrectly, the protective effect of the helmet will be significantly reduced.

General merchants will only pack standard-size helmets for sale to you, and rarely include instructions to guide everyone to wear them properly. In order to protect children's riding safety, parents should know the correct way to wear children's helmets.
First, parents should use a soft tape measure around the largest part of the head (the part of the child's eyebrows 1 inch <2.5cm>), measure the length of the child's head, and choose a child's helmet. Then follow these three steps to help your child wear a helmet.
Tips for correctly wearing children's helmets:
Wear the helmet firmly to ensure that it does not shake. This action is effortless and can be done in just 5 minutes. When buying, ask the salesperson how to adjust the straps. Through the professional demonstration of the salesperson to understand the correct wearing method, observe the appearance of the child after wearing.
When wearing the helmet, the child's forehead should not be exposed, and the helmet should be worn horizontally and not tilted forward or backward. Most people wear it hard behind their heads, exposing their foreheads, and this is the mistake most people make. If they accidentally hit the handlebars, this will not protect their heads. In fact, the brim of the helmet should be about 1 cm higher than the eyebrows. Without blocking the line of sight, wearing it at a low position can protect the forehead that may be injured during an impact collision.
Check whether the adjustment belt is comfortable and adjust the tightness. When fastening the children, see if their heads can turn freely, and instruct them to look up or down to see if the children can breathe smoothly. The regulation belt needs to be fastened, which is ignored by many parents. Between the neck and the adjustment belt, it is sufficient to leave a gap the size of a finger. If it is too loose, it may shift when impacted, and it will not protect the head, which increases safety risks.
At the same time, it is recommended that parents take the time to check their children's helmet every week to determine whether the adjustment belt is out of position and deformed. Before riding, check again that your child has fastened the adjustment straps. Don't cause accidents due to momentary carelessness.
