How do I mount my helmet shield?

There are two ways to do this depending on your helmet. 
  • If you have screw studs mounted in the helmet like in the N5A, N6A, and TL2. Remove old shield. Place the new shield how you want it on the helmet and press it firmly against the studs.
  • If the screws are not attached to the helmet like on the 1010, and 1044. Remove the old shield and place the screws back into the helmet. Place the shield how you want it and press firmly against the screw heads.¬†
Doing this will leave a mark on the back of the shield for you to drill/punch a hole. We recommend a hole punch or drill bit that is the same diameter as the shank on the screw or stud. Do not punch/drill the hole the same size as the head of the screw this will make the hole too big. If drilling use a sharp bit for a much cleaner hole. We also recommend a second person to hold the shield if drilling. 

How do I order the same hat again?

This would also apply to ordering the same hat as someone else. We have added a place on the custom hats, where you can add a previous order number. Enter the order number there, select the hat you want, and then proceed to the customization. Once the customization opens be sure to choose the design and leather color you are wanting. If everything is to be the exact same as the previous order. You can simply hit add to cart after selecting the design and leather color. For that instance, there is no need to go through the entire customization process. If some changes are wanted like a name change, or color change. Please make those changes, if no changes to other areas you do not need to do anything. We will use the previous order number to match the text, sizes of text and other aspects of the design. You are welcome to email us with any questions

Keep in mind if the previous order was for a painted patch but you are ordering a non-painted patch. We will make the same design in a non-painted version.


When will I get my order?

Estimated times to ship are listed on all items that require time to make. Painted items usually take the full time listed. Orders of multiple items may take a bit longer. We do keep up with the estimated times and update them as needed. Please keep in mind these are estimates but are very close to actual time for the order to ship/leave our shop.

Do you offer a rush service on making an item?
