Plum® Enterprises’s ProtectaCap®

  • Proven Safety Effectiveness. Plum’s® ProtectaCap® has helped prevent traumatic brain injuries for over 20 years.
  • Better than Custom-Made. Medical professionals agree that ProtectaCap® fits and works better than custom-molded helmets.
  • Comfortable. ProtectaCap® protective headgear is the most comfortable helmet available. Fully encased in a cotton blend, Plum’s® ProtectaCap® provides full head protection with a unique design that expands and opens around the ears for optimal hearing. ProtectaCap® is comfortable enough for sleeping, for post-surgery and nighttime safety.
  • Rugged. ProtectaCap® will not crack despite numerous impacts and cannot be picked apart like the vinyl covered helmets which children can easily tear and swallow.
  • Lightweight Protection for All Ages. Plum’s® ProtectaCap® comes in six sizes, for Babies through Adults,
    in a variety of comfortable, breathable cotton-blend fabrics. ProtectaCap’s® lightweight custom-fit is ideal for active kids,
    special needs, aging adults and individuals with balance concerns.

The Lower the Number, the Greater the Protection

Compare the GMax [maximum gravity] of Plum’s® Helmets to Vinyl-Dipped Helmets. A Peak G Number Above 200 is Dangerous. The lower the GMax number the better the head protection. While no protective headgear can guarantee protection from all impacts or injuries, Plum® engineers its products for safety, dependability and lightweight comfort. Plum’s® ProtectaCap® and ProtectaCap+Plus® protective helmets provide one-of-a-kind, secure, custom fit with proven impact protection.

Client Reviews and Testimonials

The ProtectaCap® has worked out great. My daughter loves it. She couldn't stand the vinyl one; it was bulky and uncomfortable.

C. Winkelmann

We were so glad to receive information on your ProtectaCap®! Our son had cranial surgery and we had to wrap his head in layers and layers of gauze and cotton which was getting harder to do as he regained his strength after the surgery. At the six-week post-op appointment, we showed the ProtectaCap® to the surgeon and he thought it was great! Thank you for making a usable, durable headgear; it fits our needs perfectly!


My name is Tiffany and I’m leaving a message to say thank you for the ProtectaCap®. I’m 34 and I fall all the time. And ProtectaCap® has saved me from being knocked out. Thank you for such a great product.


We’ve heard all positive things about the ProtectaCap® helmets. They’ve worked great for our patients post-surgery and the compliance is wonderful. We’re completely switching to them from our previous helmets. We still have some of our old helmets, but we won’t use them anymore.
