    Halo Gasket Separating

    Anyone try gluing the gaskets on Halo Headsweats when they separate? I tried contact cement, but it won't stick to the gasket itself. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

    The only glue that will probably work are glues that might irritate your skin.

    I would toss and replace with something that doesn't come apart so easily.

    I agree with Jay. If its not that old, maybe they will help you out. I use Halo but have never had this happens. Over time I normally start to see the seal start to develop cracks and then I chuck it and get a new one

    Mine just came apart so I bought a new one. This time I read the label, which says hand wash in cold water; I had been throwing mine in the washing machine.

    Maybe it will hold if I follow the directions.

    Hmm, you might be on to something. I machine wash mine, but on hand-wash cycle and in a lingerie bag. Maybe that’s not enough. Thanks! When all fails, read the directions.

    I have 3 that I wash in the machine cold, no problems with any of them separating. I've used them for 4 or 5 years. I do have one that cracked in a 2 places, but they do sneak their way into the dry on occasion so that might be the problem with that one.

    I dont hand wash anything: Halo, Assos bibs, etc. They do get washed in cold/gentle and are hung to dry but life is too short for hand-washing
