Zamp Z-19 Shield Replacement:

Removing the shield is very quick and simple, here’s how we suggest changing shields:

Step 1 – Open shield until all the way open.

Step 2 – Grabbing the shell of the helmet through the eye port, put your thumb on the black sliding shield lock. This is the round black piece surrounding the black phillips head screw.

Step 3 – Slide the shield lock towards the back of the helmet. While holding back, gently release the shield. You will hear a gentle snap, this is normal, and the shield will be released.

Step 4 – Repeat the process on the other side.

Step 5 – To install the new shield, just reverse the process. Keep in mind the shield can only be removed if the sliding shield lock is being pushed towards the back.

Step 6 – Ensure the sliding shield locks are slid fully towards the front of the helmet. This locks the shield on and prevents unwanted release from the hinges.
