I like hanging my welding helmet, sand blast hood, magnifiers and ear protectors on hooks in my shop. I often find myself grabbing them to complete a quick project and dislike having to rummage through a more secure place for them.
Unfortunately, whenever I bump into them, they take a tumble and land on the floor... Not good for lenses or electronics. I've devised a simple hook arrangement that locks my headgear securely in place, yet allows for "grab-n-go" removal.
Step 1: What You'll Need
1 Screw Hook Loop (I used 1" & 5/8" OD... What I had... Any size should work).
1 "S" hook (large enough to go around the band of your headgear)
Step 2: Attach the Parts... Screw Them in Place.
Crimp the "S" hook to the loop and that's it. Just screw them where you want them.
Just make sure the open end of the hook faces forward and hang your gear the way I'm doing in the photo.
When you let go, the gear will swing down, rotating the hook upward, locking everything in place.
Getting it off is just as easy.
Step 3: Done...
Hang your headgear and don't worry about it falling down.
