Visor installation?


New Hunter
I just did mine a little while ago and did the Hot Glue method because I wanted the ability to replace it at a later date. It worked quite well.


This is what I came up with

Nice Job Richard! I will be making my spring-clip-thingies, from Thin PVC i believe that way if i don’t like the shape (tension, etc) I can just simply reheat, reshape and voila! What are yours made from?


I just epoxied the female half of this type of screw (any good hardware has them) into the helmet. They come in different lengths. Then with the addition of a nylon washer the visor holds nicely. Low cost and doesn't take up much room either.
Here's the result...

Really like this thread. What about using a very thin washer in between the visor and bucket to create a small gap. This would help with ventilation and fogging while not appearing to wide or separated from the bucket. Something maybe in the 1/32 thickness?

Has anybody installed their visor using Epoxy Putty? I've heard some great things but would love to see some real world examples and gets some tips.

I used contact cement for my helmet, I think its an effective but much much cheaper way of putting the visor in, it also holds for a very long time so dont worry about dropping it on your kitchen floor after you put it in, the thing stays in forever

Sorry for getting back to you this late johkic. I pattern the visor by first cutting a light weight piece of
cardboard to the general "T" shape you need. Tape it inside the helmet and then from the outside draw a line
onto the cardboard that follows the visor opening.This will pick up any lack of symmetry in the opening.
Take out the pattern ,add a little extra all around your line, cut it out and check the fit inside and if satisfied
transfer it to the visor material and cut it out. I use a scroll saw. You can also use the pattern to place your shield hold fittings
where you want them. If they hold the pattern where you want your shield should fit as well.
