They have these new things....I think they are called "pockets" I Have some in my gear and they seem to work great....Might want to give them a try......Makes a hell of a lot more sense that putting WD-40 on them (Flame on...!!!) Stay safe and remember to keep the faith.....Paul
Actually KAli...I have been in many a buildings. One thing i have learnt is....removing the door far beats any chock, in residential homes! If you choose to use a chock, thats why we have POCKETS!! I carry two chocks, one in each pocket! nothing on my head, helmet is to heavy as it is.
Brad, If you are worried about anything melting on your head.... I am more worried about why you let yourself get in that FAR!!!
Should you put WD-40 on the pockets as well?
Seriously...Rubberbands of any kind will deteriorate in things such as HEAT! Especially if they are heated then cooled..heated then cooled. WD-40, petro based will deteriorate them as well. Extreme cold will do the same. They will stretch, lose elasticity, crumble, eventually break. If you're determined to have a helmet band, be resolved to replacing it often (depending on use)
