Help locating Bauer helmet ear covers
 
For the life of me, I can't find replacement ear covers for my Bauer HH5000 helmet. I can find the rubber ear loops all day, but not the clear plastic ear covers.

Does anyone know where I could pick up a pair or even just one?

I've got a set I just took off a brand new Bauer 4500 and will never use. I'd venture a guess they'd fit your 5000. If you want them, PM me your address and I'll drop 'em in the mail.

Ozz 04-17-2011 05:38 PM

Tremendous, thank you! PM coming.

Same as BlackDog13 I have some off of a new Bauer 5100 that I'll never use (at least I think I still have 'em). If his don't work out, let me know.

Ozz 04-18-2011 06:12 PM

Thanks, I will update the thread once I get them and let you know if I need 'em :)

If those guys dont have some that will work, any Bauer dealer can get them from Bauer. We get them from Bauer all the time to have them when tourneys come to town and kids are missing them and cant play.

As luck would have it, the ones BlackDog sent were just a tiny bit short. If my head were smaller I bet they would've worked.

Pog Form, here's a picture (attached) of what they ones I need look like. Are they a match for what you've got?

Do you think these differ in size depending on helmet size?

Between adult helmets, I'm not sure since they're adjustable by quite a bit. The guy who sent his replacements to me had a different model helmet all together, so that was probably the difference maker.

Crap! You'd think those things would be standard from model to model. :shakehead

I know, they almost fit but the way one mounting tab was angled, it made it just off enough that I couldn't make it work. Like I said, if my head were smaller then the distance between mounting points on the helmet would be lesser, and it would've been able to fit just right. But no such luck :)

True. I can see the different model not matching quite right. I would figure they might be the same size for the same model helmet in different head sizes. I have two of these helmets in medium size if you want to try that.

Ozz 04-25-2011 01:26 PM

Should work. These measure right around 5" so if yours match the picture and aren't far off of that then it looks good :D

I'll have a look when I get home and will let you know later tonight, likely around 9:30 p.m. at the earliest.

Pog Form 04-25-2011 09:19 PM

Hmm, couldn't seem to find them with the rest of my hockey stuff so I have a bit of a fear I might have actually tossed 'em. Let me know if this other fella's covers work for you, and if not, I'll have another look around. Sorry about that!

Ozz 04-25-2011 09:22 PM

No problem man, thanks for even looking! I'll wait to see what anyone else might come up with.

I'll stop off at home this weekend and give them a quick measure and I'll let you know.

MeltingPlastic 04-26-2011 07:56 AM

Sorry buddy, if you woulda posted last week i woulda hooked ya up but seems i threw out both pairs the other day

16Gamer 04-27-2011 09:39 AM

Let me look at home tonight. I may have a set from a 4500 if you think they will fit.....

Ozz 04-27-2011 09:45 AM

The first set I got came off the 4500 helmet, they were different.

Unless yours look just like this:
