Replacement helmet strap
« on: June 13, 2019, 04:30:17 pm »
Hi Cavers,

I have a Ecrin Roc - but the buckle is now broken. Did a temporary fix using a mini krab, not ideal though because it cant be released under tension.

Does anyone know of somewhere I could get a replacement strap or of any ingenious solutions / persons who fix helmets I'd appreciate it!

I use thin (4mm?) bungee cord for the chin strap on my diving helmet. Cheap easy fix. No buckle to block with mud.
Probably wouldn't meet any kind of PPE standard, but does the job fine for caving.

I would recommend a new helmet... They're not that pricey and you've only got one head

I have a bag of spare parts for ecrin rocks.

Pm me a picture of the part and an address.

I will post it to you FOC you can drop some pennies into a cave rescue tin.

Also have Ecrin Roc helmet excellent condition £40.00  ;D

I have the same question after a mouse chewed through the chinstrap of a never-used Écrin-Rock
