Parts of helmets made from thin scraps? (10)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

chinstraps

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'parts of helmets' is the definition.
I don't know anything about this answer so I can't judge whether it can be defined by this definition.

'from thin scraps?' is the wordplay.
'from' indicates anagramming the letters (the anagram comes from the same letters).
'thin'+'scraps'='thinscraps'
'thinscraps' with letters rearranged gives 'CHINSTRAPS'.

'made' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Another definition for chinstraps that I've seen is " that keep helmets on".)
