How to Remove Side Shields from Eyeglasses?
First of all, hold the frame with strong hands. For removing side shields, begin with the right temple. Open the temple and hold the side shield firmly from top to bottom. Put a light pressure, slide the shield down to the temple length, and off at the end. Repeat the same procedure with the left side shield.
If the side shields ate fixed with screws, keep the frame on the side with the temple, open it, and expose the screw. But first, cover your lenses with a soft towel to keep away from scratching. Loose the screw slowly by turning to the left side and taking off the side shield. Repeat the same method with the other side.
Remove a Snap-On side shield by grasping the frame firmly. First, open the right temple put pressure gently, and bend the side shield from top to bottom with a wiggling motion. If still, the side shield does not come off, slightly down the temple and take away from the frame with wiggling and bending options.
Don’t take off the side shields that are attached permanently with a bolt, pin, or clip. Such a safety side shield is not for removal because removing style can damage the frame and is not good for safety glasses.
The side shields with Snap-On need numerous attempts to be removed. If the side shield doesn’t remove the first time, keep it sliding down the temple and rock it back. Keep it up until it starts to come off.
Don’t try to take off side shields from your protective eyewear if you have to wear them all the time at your duty time. OSHA recommends safety specs for both employers and employees even if you don’t need safety equipment.
