    Default Helmet display stand

    Hello everyone!
    My latest trick for displaying helmets is a spray painted Pringles potato chips tube... The helmet rests on the plastic lid. Cheap and effective.

    Nice idea but isn't the tube top heavy?or do you fill it with stones etc,regards minnie.

    Nope, i thought that at first as well, but the tube diameter is large enough so the helmet won't wobble. It could be filled with sand if needed. I tried to topple it, but if the helmet is set right, it won't move.

    Nice idea, I might use this for some lids. Luckily, German helmets display themselves nicely just sat on the skirt

    Thanks guys, glad you like it. I was onroute to take the tubes to the trash when it struck me... Guess it's a good way to recycle them too...
