That's right, I don't know the terminology, I just use the thing.
There are lots of threads regarding the optical aspects of helmets, but my issue is with the cream-colored part that clamps the helmet to my head. And not with the clamp, but with the little racheting bits at either temple that I try to adjust to get the thing to flip right. I've always had Jackson helmets, and have always found it hard to get them to work well for any length of time. Yes, I have looked at the diagram of how to assemble the little pieces and THINK I have them in the right order and direction, etc., etc., ALTHOUGH I'm having more trouble with the latest one than I remember having before, and the design of these parts hasn't changed, I don't believe.
My opinion is that the escapment is a poor design from a basic mechanical standpoint for the reason that the diameter is about that of a nickel; if it were the diameter of a fifty-cent piece it would be a whole lot less touchy to adjust.
And maybe there are better designs form other helmet makers??
Am I just too dumb, or is this a problem for others?
