TESTING & RESEARCH

Testing was conducted at an independent third party laboratory adhering to NOCSAE standards for new helmets. Testing procedures were followed as specified within NOCSAE (ND) 087-18m18. A twin wire apparatus as defined in NOCSAE (ND) 001-17m17b was used to perform all impacts. A 3” MEP calibration pad was used to calibrate the headforms and all impacts were conducted on a 1⁄8” MEP Test Pad. The helmet was positioned on the headform per the manufacturer’s supplied fitting instructions.

DROP VELOCITY 13.89 (FT/S) +/- 3%

% Force Reduction as compared to helmets without SAFEClip

  • HELMET ONE 35% 35%
  • HELMET TWO 35% 35%
  • HELMET THREE 26% 26%
  • HELMET FOUR 19% 19%

HOW DOES IT WORK?

SAFEClip allows the facemask to slightly move backwards and absorb the impact forces through a Sorbothane insert inside of the SAFEClip. These forces are absorbed and reduced, and then the facemask returns to its original position and is ready for the next hit!

SAFEClip is constructed of shock absorbing sorbothane, polyethylene and stainless steel.

SCREW:
Stainless Steel (Stainless 304)

TOP PLATE:
Polycarbonate

SHOCKABSORBER:
85 Durometer Sorbothane

BODY:
Polyethylene

NUTPLATE:
Stainless Steel (Stainless 303)

To assemble SAFEClip, follow these directions.

First, you want to remove the existing facemask clips from your helmet. You can do this with a standard screwdriver.

Then, open your SAFEClip box and go ahead and unscrew the hardware so that you have five separate pieces (as noted above).

Using your hands, open the BODY so that the rounded groove can slide over the facemask and snap into place. 

Next, add the top plate as pictured. Place the sorbothane insert into the bottom of the body, next to the top plate (matching rounded edges together). 

Place the nut plate into the mounting hole. Align the facemask with the mounting hole and add the top screw through the top plate. 

Secure the SAFEClip with a phillips head screwdriver until hand tight. Repeat these steps for each clip on the helmet. Your SAFEClips are now installed!
