Translation into English - part 2

Here is a further example of a translation into English that has gone badly and ridiculously wrong. It is one thing when a sign in a campsite is poorly translated, but it is quite another when the bad translation is in the instructions booklet of one of the major companies in Germany (a company that manufactures locks and bicycle helmets.) The extracts below are from a guide to the adjustment of a new bicycle helmet. They are reproduced here without comment!
