Northstar now has the new Hans Adjustable Device

     The HANS Adjustable Device, which meets the SFI Foundation's Spec. 38.1 for head and neck restraints, enables all drivers to purchase a HANS with full confidence of a comfortable fit no matter what type of car or racing seat they use. Previously, customers ordered a HANS Device in a fixed angle according to the driver's physical size and type of seating position in the car -- such as an upright seat in stock cars or a reclined seat in open-wheel machines.  With the HANS Adjustable Device,  a racer who drives both a sports car and a formula car will no longer need a separate HANS device for each vehicle.
     The HANS Adjustable Device is eligible for use in most U.S. racing series. NASCAR, which conducts its own evaluations, currently has the HANS Adjustable Device under consideration for approval. After passing all the required strength tests, the new device is under final consideration by the safety committee of the FIA, the international sanctioning body.     
     The HANS Adjustable Device sustains HPP's reputation as a leader in motor racing safety technology. The new device is made by an injection molded process using a metal alloy before a fire-resistant nylon coating is applied. Metal fasteners that employ Spiralock® technology enable a driver to adjust the legs of the HANS to alter the angle of the collar from 10 to 40 degrees, in  five-degree increments.
