WHEN DOES THE HELMET FIT PROPERLY?
The helmet should surround the head easily, and should be worn level. The front helmet edge should sit one to two fingers widths above the bridge of the nose (Fig. 2).
It is easy to check if the helmet fits correctly. All you have to do is leave the chinstrap unclosed and
gently move your kid‘s head. If the helmet moves, we recommend adjusting the divider lock system.
HOW DO I ADJUST THE CHINSTRAP CORRECTLY?
Open all straps (including those on the Melon® Divider Locks) so that the X-Fix system does not affect the adjustment process.
Open the Melon® Divider Locks (Fig. 3c) and put your helmet on your child’s head.
First adjust the front strap, which should be located underneath the chin, to the correct length. Leave approximately a finger-wide space between the belt and the chin of your child. To shorten the strap, pull it through the magnetic buckle’s strap loop. To lengthen it, pull the buckle further down.
Then close the Fidlock® magnetic buckle.
After you’ve adjusted the front strap, the adjustment of the side straps follows. Position the
Melon® Divider Locks (Fig. 3b) in a way that neither the strap nor the Divider Locks touch the ears. To do this, simply slide the Divider Lock up or down into the correct position.
When you find the right position, close the divider lock.
When adjusting the length of the side straps they must be pulled to the correct length at the same time if possible (Fig. 2). To do this, pull the straps on the side to the back until they are tight.
Be aware that after the adjustment of the side straps the front strap might get too short. If necessary adjust the length of the front strap again.
Another advantage of the Melon® X-Fix: After the first adjustment, only the front strap length has to be adjusted each time (of course, the correct setting of all other straps must be checked).
After you have made all the settings on the helmet and closed the magnetic buckle, the helmet must feel comfortable and should not slide backwards or forwards.
MELON® X-FIX WING – SAFETY AUTOMATISM AND REAR LIGHT
Your Melon® Toddler helmet is equipped with the Melon® X-Fix.
It is a patented strap system for greater protection, safety, and comfort.
X-Fix prevents the helmet from rolling off and distributes forces optimally to protect the rear head if impacted. Due to the crosswise guidance of the straps at the neck they tighten automatically with increasing forces.
In addition, lockable X-Fix gliders on the sides secure a correct helmet adjustment to prevent
X-Fix also secures the helmet shell in the correct horizontal position.
The Melon® tail light is integrated into the X-Fix-Wing, which crosses the straps at the back of the head.
The integrated tail light comes with three different modes. The setting “flashing” is
preferable to continuous lighting for energy-saving reasons.
If the battery needs to be replaced, gently push the Melon® tail light out of the X-Fix Wing and loosen the screws on the back of the light (Fig.3b). Replace the battery with a new one and re-tighten the Melon® rear light screws properly so that no moisture can get inside.
