The original design concept was to have the front strap going directly across the forehead. If all the straps are adjusted according to the instructions on the back of the back, there’s never a problem. However, many of the best wrestlers make all of the straps very tight (almost to the point where it doesn’t fit). They also tape the front and crown straps together, with the straps going across the hair line. This forms more of a triangle, and the front strap can’t go across your eyes if the straps are properly adjusted.
