Helmet fitting instruction

Our safety team can help you find the right helmet for your child. The Simply Safety Center has a wide range of helmets available for purchase. Our team can help you find one that fits your child and their needs. We offer helmet adjustment and fitting with every purchase. If your child already has a helmet, you can bring it in to be fitted for your child. We recommend replacing bike helmets every three years.

Life jacket fitting instruction

Life jackets are not a one-size-fits-all device. Our team can help you find the appropriate sized life jacket for your child. If your child does not know how to swim or is not a strong swimmer it is best practice to wear a life jacket. Texas law requires children under 13 years old to wear life jackets on boats. The Simply Safety Center offers infant, child, and youth size jackets.
