When choosing a helmet, remember to choose how the visor will be fixated on. There are 4 types of visor fixation and we’ll tell you all about it.
- With a knot
First and base price way – to use a leather cord. Cord is tied around the helmet and fixed with a knot. Old and simple way, however, somewhat unreliable – too much depends on one knot and it looks a bit provincial.
- With a steel buckle
For this fixation type, we use 1,5-2 cm (0,06-0,08 in) wide leather belt and a steel buckle. It is stylish, brutal, and reliable. Buckle can be installed in two ways – on the back of the head or on the right side near the visor.
- With a handcrafted brass buckle
This way is technically similar to the previous one – leather belt and a buckle... But! What a buckle! Hand-made brass one that is appropriate for SCA events and reenactment festivals. Well, and looks really stylish as well.
- With a push button
Last and coolest way of visor fixing – by means of the push button. Usually, a button is installed on the right front or right side of the helmet. Such a fixation type is the only one when the visor is fixed not at the back of the head.
