Gentlemen, Ladies, or anyone else:

Last night I was working a game with a newer guy, HS tournament game, game as lame as a 2 legged horse in the Derby (but I digress). He has the plate, praise the Lord, and he puts on his gray West Vest, The protector is so loose on him the neck opening is in the middle of his chest, and I kid you not. I took one look at that and said "let me help adjust that thing, your going to get killed wearing it like that."

Well, I tightened everything I could find and still it hung down too low. It was better, but still too big. He was maybe 5'11", but the protector was still too big/loose for him to use. Any suggestions on how to fit the protector better for him, other than buying his and finding him a new one? I guess he could cut up the straps and put new ones on but that make no sense since they are riveted on, it would be a significant expense.

Thanks for your help.

My suggestion is selling it on eBay and getting an All-Star. :) Seriously....I sold my Gold a couple weeks ago for $125 and got an All-Star for $155 at ump-attire. No droop at all anymore.

I don't understand why it was so big.
I am 5'9, 165 and mine fits perfectly.

2014 Game Count 40

Suffered Back problem that required Surgery in Feb so well off my normal game count for the year.

But I am Happy, Happy, Happy.

I'm 6'1 and the gold was too short to cover all my ribs. Was it the wv platinum or charcoal?

Platinum, and definitely not fitted for him.

After seeing this I am very thankful for the privilege of wearing Carlucci...

You need the TOP straps to be as tight as they can be and still go over the head. Then make the lower part as short as it will go. The strap that wraps around the waist will now pull down on the lower part and thusly be pulling the front of the chest protector up toward the neck where it belongs.
