Rated 1 out of 5Â by PeeVee75 Would have been fine with two staples per side
This mask is cheap and would be perfect for simple use if not for the fact that the elastic band is attached with only one staple per side. What I do is to take a stapler and add one more staple per side before putting the mask on, and believe it or not, the strap never comes off. Just wanted to point this out to other users who gave bad reviews based on the strap. It would, of course, be great if HD just did this in the first place before selling us a poor product because I doubt two extra staples per mask add that much cost.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Tirador Don't bother, buy the 3m product and save the money we wasted here.
I am a long time pro, not a DIY who does not know better. In brief these are useless. Although the protective material is suitable for the job the other two key aspects, the nose piece and headband are not.
The nose piece generally becomes detached from the mask as you remove the mask from the protective package (7 out of 15 we used failed this way before the first use). If the nose piece does remain attached then the headband will break as you try to put it on (remaining 8 failed this way before the first use). Headband issue is the fact they are attached to the mask with a small staple that is insufficiently strong.
We went back to the 3m product

Good for the price. Not recommended for more than one-time or long-time use.

The elastic strap breaks very easily. Cheaply made.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by RednexToyz Fair, at best...
Found these to be cheap. Didn't cover & protect very well. Strap was short & didn't hold the mask in place very good. Spend a few extra $ & get a better mask that allows exhaused air to escape.
