My son’s nearing the age where I can work on projects with him, or at least where he “works” alongside me. That means he’s going to be needing eye and hearing protection.
I came across two potential products, both by Pyramex. I can’t find any details about where they’re made, but at this point fit is more important to me.
The difference looks to be in the arms, with the Ztek featuring non-slip rubber tips.
I’m leaning towards the Mini Intruder. At $14-15 for a dozen safety glasses, I won’t have to worry so much about breakage or misplacement. Plus, you get 12 glasses for less than it would cost for 3 pairs of the other kind.
But do they fit? The user reviews on Amazon suggest that fit all kinds of kids, from toddlers and preschoolers, to tweens.
I figure it can’t hurt to buy a pack, and worst case scenario, they don’t fit my son and I end up keeping them in a storage bin for a few years. Or I could always return them and do a search now and then search again once he’s bigger.
I’m also hoping that you guys share your insights about how you protect your kids’ eyes when working with tools or power tools.
Pryamex isn’t a brand I’m familiar with. If you’ve used their safety gear of any kind, what did you think of them?
