It was a year ago or so that I purchased a HANS device.  The vendors said that 
they were certified installers.  So, I brought my helmet and such to them.  
Whereupon they inspected my helmet closer than I had.  There appeared to be a 
very small line just above the face shield that for all intents looked just 
like a scratch.  I didn't see it until he showed it to me.  Even then we used a 
magnifying glass.  Sure enough the helmet was cracked.  He would not install 
the Hans device until I got a new helmet.  Fortunately, I already had a brand 
new in the box SA2000 with me.  I kept hoping that I didn't have to use this 
helmet right away.  I suppose this is TR mentality just ---use the parts until 
they are really used up and useles..  

The point is that here I was spending a large chunck of change on this HANS 
device and not inspecting my helmet enough to realize that it was trash.  Thank 
goodness for young eyes.
