Frame Adjustment

Temple Adjustment


Frame Adjustment

Tighten the Fit
If your frame feels too wide, begin to bend the frame in small increments. Face the lens towards your chest, and place your thumbs on the edge of where the lens meets the bend in the frame. Firmly but gently, make small pulses to adjust the frame inward. Try them on, and continue to adjust as needed.

Loosen the Fit
If the frame feels too tight, again face the lens towards your chest, with your thumbs at the edge of the lens, and pull gently outward in small movements.

Temple Adjustment

Loosen the Fit
After wearing your Gatorz for a few hours, you will notice if the temples are providing a comfortable fit. If they are placing pressure on your head, hold firmly at the base of the temple and pull the end outwards with repetitive pulses. After adjusting both sides, try them on and determine if you need to make any more adjustments. You may need to wear them for several hours to determine if you’ve found the right fit.

Tighten the Fit
If the template feel too loose, place your hands as you would for a temple adjustment and pulse the end inwards until you feel you’ve reached the right placement. Try them on and wear them to determine if any further adjustments are needed.


Raise Glasses Closer to your Face
If you feel like they’re sliding down too easily, pinch the nosepiece closer together. When making any adjustments to the glasses, we recommend making small changes, rather than big adjustments. This will help you move easily into the right fit without overdoing it.

Separate Glasses from your Face
Start by placing the glasses on your face. If they’re sitting too close to your eyes, pull the nosepiece away from the frame. Keep in mind, most Gatorz offer a wrap style fit, so they may take a little getting used to.

Yet Another A++ Pair of Shades from Gatorz!

This is now my 4th pair of Gatorz, and is my favorite pair yet. I have two Deltas, Magnums, and now the milspec ballistic Specter. They are light yet sturdy; fashionable yet functional; and cooler than any other brand out there. They feel great in hand and on head, and the metal frame means that you won’t snap them like all those other plastic sunglasses that people pay a premium for yo their own chagrin. Add on the fact that they’re made in America and it truly doesn’t get better than this. Once again, Gatorz has knocked it out of the park! I can’t wait to see what else Gatorz comes up with - I seem to buy a new pair upon each release so they don’t get sold out before I can get my hands on them. Keep up the great work, Gatorz!

The *******

Seriously a must have if you need safety glasses outside. These provide all the same comforts, features and performance you’ve come to expect and love from Gatorz. But with the added benefit of being PPE and certified. My only complaint is that I can’t get this lens rating in all the frames they offer. Once you go to the range with these you’ll ditch whatever you were using before. They’re that good.

Another Fantastic Design

I will start by saying this is the fifth pair of Gatorz I own. Two pair of Magnums, and two pair of Delta’s. These are a fantastic addition to the line up. They are as comfortable as all the other styles and the design and craftsmanship is what you come to expect from Gatorz. I can’t say enough positive things about the company as a whole or their products. Try them for yourself you will not be disappointed.
