Buy a bump cap. They look like a baseball cap but have a hard plastic liner more stylish then a hard had and will keep your head safe.

The head hurts

Any hints would be appreciated.
the issue of slides and heads has been going around for some time now, I have used the rubber corner guards for years and they have always worked great. If you feel that the whole edge is not protected they the only way is to use a pool noodle. I also look at the idea of hit and learn from hard knocks, you need to LEARN where the slide is.
Happy Camping

Never had a problem with slides, I just walk into the awning supports. At least twice a year....

The bright-colored swimming noodles are ugly, but after I hit my head the first time I grabbed the closest one available and made some corner protectors. They are lime green. I'll probably make new ones if I ever come across a white or black noodle. The DW tells me I always walk with such purpose (like I've got somewhere to go)....I swear, when I hit that corner with my forehead I had to fight back the darkness!

As the owner of a race car prep shop, we have what we call "Non SFI Roll Bar Padding" in lots of colors. Similar to the foam pipe insulators, but a little harder and oblong (thicker on one side). They also have a split that you cut on one side. They come in every color of the rainbow, but I PREFER the YELLOW. I don't care if they are ugly. I want to SEE them...
They stay in place with no problems. I also like them to overlap the ends a bit so no "hit" cuts the head open....

I don't think so. If CW staples were used, he wouldn't be here to tell the story. Would have bled to death waiting on the shipping..........
