Don't use them. Not dark enough. I read the shade protection needs to equal #13 on welders lens. I bought a handful of eclipse glasses at walmart for a buck a piece that have the ISO direct sun rating. You should not be able to see any natural light when looking thru them.

You will go blind if you use those Josh.

Like nickmech says... if you have the correct glasses when you put them on it is total blackness unless you look directly at the sun. If you can see through your glacier glasses then they are not dark enough.
