Charles Owen Riding Hat User Guide
PLEASE READ THESE FITTING INSTRUCTIONS VERY CAREFULLY FOR
MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY OF THIS HELMET.
- Make sure that the helmet is the correct size with a firm but
comfortable fit. (WARNING) For children, never select a helmet that is
too large on the basis that they will grow into it.
- Adjust the fit of the harness whilst wearing the helmet. Insert the
buckle on the end of the chin strap into the clip on the harness. To
tighten the chin-strap, pull the slack downwards through the buckle
and then adjust the rear straps, until the helmet is firmly positioned
on the head. If fitted with a draw lace, then adjust the lace at the
back and knot securely until the helmet is firmly positioned on the
head. To undo the chin strap, squeeze the two prongs on the buckle
clip in towards each other to trigger the release mechanism.
- To fasten helmets with a metal hook and bar buckle, clip the free end
over the hook. Slacken and tighten by means of the metal bar buckle,
and position the ‘O’ ring up to the buckle. Press stud the leather
above the hook if fitted. Adjust the lace at the back and knot
securely. If the leather harness is fitted with an enclosed magnet
tab, position the end clip over the hook. The magnet will clasp the
hook and tab together.
- The helmet should not rock forwards or backwards excessively.
For adequate protection ensure that it is the correct size and fits
snugly. Helmets can move more on your head when riding. In order to
ensure that the helmet remains in position during riding, adjust the
retention system to ensure that the movement of the helmet on the head
is minimal, both for front-to-rear and side-to-side movement This helmet
maybe partially destroyed or damaged by a severe blow, even though such
damage may not be readily apparent. The helmet may, after receiving an
impact, be damaged to the point that it is no longer adequate to protect
the head against further impacts. Any helmet subjected to a severe
impact should be replaced by a new one, as a subsequent impact may not
give the wearer such adequate protection. No headgear can protect the
wearer against all foreseeable impacts and under certain conditions
riding accidents can lead to death, serious injury and long term
disability. Helmets are not designed to protect the head in the event of
crushing by a horse.
The materials used in this product do not cause skin disorders or are
hazardous for the user health. If you experience any reaction during the
use of this helmet then you should stop using it.
Storage, Use, Cleaning, Maintenance, Servicing and
Helmets should be stored at ambient
temperature out of direct sunlight. This helmet is designed to absorb
some of the energy of a blow by partial destruction of the shell or
protective padding material or both. This damage may not be visible and
therefore any helmet which suffers an impact should be discarded and
replaced by a new one. This helmet should not be dry cleaned or exposed
When to replace the helmet
Modern helmets do
not deteriorate in a bag on the shelf. The helmet has a stored amount
of protection which is used up when the head hits the ground; the damage
will not be obvious in the majority of blows. A helmet should always be
replaced if the rider has lost consciousness or suffered a severe
headache after the blow. All other blows may have reduced the protection
which may be required in the next fall. Remember the damage to the
helmet is caused by the primary impact site and any contact with the
horse. If a helmet has had no blows, then other factors should be
considered: fit of the helmet, condition of the helmet, and out-of-date
A helmet is designed to be
weaker than your head. Do not do things to the helmet that you would
not do to your head. Do not subject the helmet to temperatures above
50oC or below -20 oC. Do not store the helmet in direct sunlight.
Cleaning of the interior should be done using Charles Owen helmet
cleaning products, foamed detergents or shampoo and water followed by
vacuum drying the lining. It is important to use the minimum amount of
water as helmets are difficult to dry and easily become mouldy. With any
cleaning agent, it is important to try a small section to establish any
allergic reaction. After riding, leave the helmet in a warm dry place
overnight. Do not dry in front of a fire or a
radiator. Do not store it in a plastic bag before it is
dry. This will reduce the risk of rusting the metal components. Mud on
velvet is best left to dry and then brushed off. The pile of the fabric
can be revived by holding the hat in steam from a boiling kettle
(excluding Ayr8® Classic).
Suitable accessories and spare parts
not approved by Charles Owen COMFG Ltd may affect the functionality and
the performance of the helmet.
