How to Find Serial Numbers on Welding Helmets
Locating a serial number on a welding helmet is extremely useful for taking advantage of warranties, registering your helmet, or qualifying for special product upgrades or replacements. However, serial numbers aren’t always easy to find on welding helmets, especially since different brands and models within those brands place the serial numbers in different locations. Here are a few tips to help you better track down your helmet’s serial number:
