Default Helmet with part of liner about to fall out

Hi, any ideas as to how one would keep this from falling out without ruining the helmet? Also any ideas on how to protect liners generally? Several of mine have bits falling off. Thanks!

I have similar cases with a few of my helmets with fragile leather liners. I place them in my displaycabinet and leave them there. Not touching them will prevent a lot already.

You may consider a liner support to take the weight off the sagging leather.

A rolled up sheet of acid free card rolled into a tube shape (and cut to height ) will do the trick.
