The hard hat is the headwear used by Digger Zombies.
The hard hat absorbs 100 damage per shot and its appearance changes upon absorbing 40 and 80 damage per shot.

Being the weakest armor, you have no problem of destroying it. One Split Pea, Starfruit, Cattail or any other plant that can shoot backwards is enough to destroy it. You can also use instant-kill plants, stop it with defensive plants, or remove the pickaxe with a Magnet-shroom.
- For more trivia, see Digger Zombie.
- It is the weakest headwear and armor in the game, taking only five normal damage shots.
- Due to the fact that the hard hat is plastic, it makes the same sound that a cone makes when hit.
- The sound is useful for alerting a player if a digger has bypassed their defenses without the player's notice.
- Its light does not work in Level 4-10.
- This may be because the level itself is supposed to be dark.
