Face Shield and Hearing Protection
Zip ties secure earmuffs to a face shield for combination eye and ear protection you can make at home.
I prefer earmuffs to earplugs and protecting my entire face with a shield rather than just safety glasses. When I couldn’t find this setup locally amid recent supply shortages, I made my own face shield/earmuff protection. I used nylon zip ties to secure the muffs to the face shield. To my surprise it’s both comfortable and easy to put on and take off.
