    Why do you want one? Is it like the tag on a mattress?

    I feel the same way. But I also have to say that I took a class once where they insisted that you had NFPA compliant gear during the live burn. They actually checked every piece of gear. I cut off the NFPA label on my gloves because they annoyed me and ended up having to use my backup gloves because of that.

    On the other hand I am sure that they would realize if a fake label was applied.

    Only other reason I can think of for applying a fake label would be to sell the item.

    I think you're out of luck unless you return it for repair. That might be a bit difficult since production has been stopped currently.

    Did you just buy it off ebay? I just sold one to a guy in Florida who asked specifically about that sticker?

    I admire their thoroughness but I hope they'd figure out that a sticker alone doesn't make a piece of equipment compliant. If the model of the helmet is apparent (not that it's all that easy to distinguish a compliant N6A from a non-compliant N5A), any document demonstrating that model is compliant should suffice.

    If you go to the Cairns/MSA web site you can request a replacement label for your lid. I dont have the specific web address but I did it before.

    However, I wouldn't be surprised if they declined to give out any stickers. Your best bet is probably taking it to a Cairns/MSA distributor if you really need a sticker.

    It appears they have removed that capability from the website. I thought it odd actually that they would allow people to do that. But it used to be a free service as long as you sent them a self addressed stamped envelope with the order form.
