While searching for some current hard hat news, I stumbled upon a few new products that were too unique to pass up. These hard hat accessories are recent additions to the market and since I’d never seen anything like them, I just had to share.
The Pencil Clipper from ABC Safety Glasses is a one-of-a-kind accessory. This product eliminates having to keep your pencil behind your ear or in your pocket where it could fall out or break. It attaches to any style hard hat (curved or flat) and securely holds your pen or pencil with in easy reach.
The Hard Hat Safety Light is a practical and convenient way for you to stay safe on the job. The small light weighs only 1.6 ounces and easily attaches to most hard hats by utilizing a 3M strip. It comes in red or amber and the light can be set to remain on or flash. Three AAA are included as an extra perk. This nifty little light can be seen from up to half a mile away and it’s a small price to pay for your safety!
These Keeping Safety in Sight™ hard hat mirrors were designed to offer extra protection to construction workers. Between 1995 and 2007 there were 1,482 workers lost their lives due to a vehicle or construction equipment that came from behind. They just weren’t aware. These mirrors clip on to any hard hat and add 180degree peripheral vision while not impeding your vision at all. They are made of nonconductive material, tinted to eliminate glare, and adjustable for your convenience.
The SensGard® Hardhat Adaptor is an economical solution for those who require hearing protection. Clipping on to just about every hard hat model, this ear protection weight less than 2 ounces. Coming in two different models, this accessory can offer either 26 or 31 decibel noise reduction.

Finally, the Hard Hat Cooling System will keep you cool and comfortable on hot summer days. The motorized fan is run by rechargeable batteries (included) and it cycles on and off throughout the day and circulates the humid air out of hard hat. This air can sometimes reach up to 160degrees, so this will definitely keep you cool. Attaches onto most long and short brim hard hats.
