Default Miller Digital Elite Helmet

Perhaps someone here has come across this.
I have a Miller Digital Elite helmet. Age has taken its toll on this old snipers eyes. I want to put a cheater lens in my helmet. The inside protective cover is 4.25 X 2.5 inches. All the cheaters seem to be 4.25 X 2.00 inches. Miller has A magnifying lens adapter, part # 271328. Is this what I need to install the cheater?

I would say yes. I don't have fancy helmets any more, but I have used anything from duct tape to the add on clips.
I've never been happy completely with the clips because they allow too much movement, but it beats 2 sided tape.

As a followup to this.
The miller elite has a lens holder built in to the helmet itself. There is a bracket on the lens subsystem that the cheater slips into. Nothing additional is needed.
It appears that the cheater can be positioned in different positions. I centered it and it works fine.

Thanks for the followup and explanation, it may help someone here already, or at least the answer is here for someone that finds the thread in the future.

I will add that if you want to use the Lincoln cheater, you need to thin the edges so it fits in the clips. I used a belt grinder.
