We get lots of crazy press releases here at TM, and a lot of ’em go right in the circular file. This one, however, caught my eye. Looking past the AS SEEN ON TV feel, it seems to address a real problem: your hard hat can only protect you if you’re wearing it.
The Hat Grabber site claims that on job sites, workers often take off their protective headgear because “they won’t stay on your head, they’re uncomfortable, and they fall off when you bend over.” Their product — a grippy pad — fastens to your hat’s suspension gear, adding a little bit of padding to make it more comfortable and to allow you to crank it down tightly enough to stay on your head.
In theory it looks like a pretty decent idea, and for $12 it doesn’t seem like it’s overpriced. But I’ve spent exactly zero full days on a job site. What say those of you who have? Good idea, or late night TV junk?
