Place the plexiglass in front of you, turn the wider side with six holes up. Place the headband near the top edge, see the six pins (protrusions). We will use them to assemble the plexiglass, starting in the middle.
For easier assembly, it is recommended to push your hand through the headband.
Mount the plexiglass on the headband using the third hole from the right. Hold it with your thumb.
Carefully straighten the right side of the headband along the plexiglass and insert the pin. As soon as the pin is through, you can release the thumb.
Straighten the right edge again and insert the marked pin.
Continue on the other side of the headband, apply the same approach. Straighten the headband, avoid bending the plexiglass.
