When the hood is flipped up, it comes off the hard hat really high. This leaves the full weight above your head. If your hard hat isn't cinched down tight and you lean or bend one way or another, the wide lens auto darkening hoods (titanium) are too heavy and will pull your hard hat off. I can see where the adapter would work fine for a smaller lens/lighter hoods.

ConsLeaves hood too high on your head when flipped up.
