Stacy Helton from Seattle Children’s recently appeared on the New Day Show to demonstrate how to properly fit a bicycle helmet. The “eyes, ears, mouth” method is a simple way to make sure that your helmet is protecting your head, and it goes like this:
Eyes: when you look up you should see the front edge of your helmet- this means that your helmet is far enough forward to protect your forehead.
Ears: the buckles on the straps of your helmet should meet directly below your ears on the sides of your head.
Mouth: when you open your mouth, you should feel the straps pull on the top of your helmet.
Kids need helmet? Seattle Children’s is giving away free helmets for kids ages 1 though 18 TONIGHT from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Ballard Commons Park.
