Hey guys, so I was adjusting my Giro helmet before a ride and heard a snapping sound, turns out the plastic screw housing broke apart and the adjuster popped off.

I have taken the small black plastic that included the housing out and am wondering if there are any replacements for the black piece. I did some research online and came across a replacement that included the black piece but it’s meant for the synthe.

Do you think getting this replacement, unscrewing off the cap and taking it apart would work?

Outside of things like padding, most helmet manufacturers do not carry spares like this. Seems a shame to bin a product that could easily be repaired but then they'd be open to all sorts of litigation in the event of an accident. Not really worth their time, they might offer a crash replacement and/or discount. Contact your local Giro distributor.

Just emailed my local Giro distributor and the US Giro warranty service. Let’s hope they carry spare parts for such a delicate piece of the helmet. Fingers crossed
