    Just to confirm, I purchased a N6A with damn near the same manufacture date and mine just popped right out like you said. It can easily be put back in. Not a big deal anymore since its on the shelf and my 5A is in service.

    Mine was made on 1/07 and it looks like the ratchet could be popped out but I am not sure. I would like to see some pictures to confirm what I see.

    Here are a few Hundred without ratchets....

    ...Oooops...These never had ratchets! These were made before the NFPA and OSHA tried to fix something that wasn't broken!

    For the record...I didn't need the ratchet for my helmet to fit right, it snaps in and out with little problem...so I don't wear it. The crown pad was a recent addition and wasn't installed until recent years...if it makes the helmet ride too high...why wear it?

    Removed the ratchet tonight folks. Had to add some foam padding here and there but I think I can get used to this.

    Protest back in 1978 by the UFA regarding manpower and disbanding of companies and what it would do to the city...it was infront of the former quarters of the then recently disbanded Engine Co. 31 on Lafayette St.

    Default This is from my N6A built 02/2007

    This is what you see when you push all of the material out of the way. This is the ratchet which connects to the impact cap. The two clear flathead looking screws stay there. You don't unscrew them. Just pull on the black plastic piece that the velcro is on in the foreground. From there it is pretty self explanatory.

    No the fire museum is located at an old firehouse from like 1904. I believe it is on Spring Street in the Soho district of Manhatten.
