The Milwaukee Bolt system allows users to secure accessories to a the company’s head protection lineup simultaneously for a complete head protection solution. The line includes eye visors, polycarbonate face shields, metal mesh face shields, and a Bolt RedLithium USB headlamp.

The company states that Bolt eye visors are are classified as spectacles and can be used in place of safety glasses with a Z87.1+ rating. Designed with a wide range of face shapes in mind, the visors feature dual pivoting adjustment points for a precise and comfortable fit. Built to withstand the harsh conditions of the jobsite, eye visor lenses are treated with an anti-scratch exterior hard coating and a fog-free interior coating.

Installation is designed to be easy and tool-free, using a slide mechanism to secure into the Bolt front mount of Milwaukee head protection. The eye visors include a Bolt Low-Profile Headlamp Mount that allows seamless compatibility with most headlamps. A model is compatible with all Milwaukee head protection, and another is specifically designed with low-profile arms for Milwaukee Safety Helmets.

Bolt full face shields feature an ANSI Z87.1+ rating, a fog-free interior coating, and an anti-scratch exterior hard coating. The shields quickly secure into the Bolt front slots on Milwaukee head protection. The shield lens can be quickly removed for replacement with the tool-free snap-in, snap-out covers. The shields are available in an option compatible with all Milwaukee safety helmets and hard hats, which includes a Bolt Low-Profile Headlamp Mount that allows compatibility with select headlamps, as well as an option specifically designed for Milwaukee safety helmets with no brim.

Constructed with a highly durable stainless steel, the Bolt Mesh Full Face Shield is designed to protect users from debris in chipping and cutting applications. The ANSI Z87.1 rated face shields feature an optimal shield width and mesh pattern design that offers a consistent wide and clear field of view.

Fully compatible with all Bolt accessories, the Bolt RedLithium USB Headlamp is the dedicated lighting solution for Milwaukee hardhats and helmets. It features an ultra-thin light head that allows users to raise and lower face shields and eye visors while delivering 600 lumens of high-definition flood lighting from its 70-degree pivoting light head.

The headlamp is designed with a cam lock mounted battery pack in the rear for maximum maneuverability and security in tight spaces. The Milwaukee headlamp has four light output modes: high, medium, low, and eco, and offers up to 32 hours of runtime. The battery can be recharged in the headlamp via USB-C or swapped out with additional RedLithium USB batteries.
