The HANS® Device attaches to your helmet via two metal anchors. 90% of our customers install their own anchors - all you need is a 1/4 inch drill and measuring tape. Devices come with instructions plus a special installation tool. If you prefer we will install the anchors for you as an extra cost option. Please select this service in Parts and Accessories to let us know you prefer this.

Professional Series HANS® Device 
SFI 38.1 - SFI Certified and FIA 8858 Homologated Certified

The HANS® Device Professional Series - when every ounce matters. The HANS® Pro uses 100% carbon fiber and resin construction for the ultimate in light-weight strength.  Includes everything needed for installation to one helmet. 

Tether Styles:
    * Sliding: Allows a fuller range of motion, are standard on all HANS® Devices
    * Fixed: The original HANS® design. Fixed tethers are available by special order and include the Quick Disconnect tether “with the shackle in the middle”, and the standard fixed.  Tethers are fixed at the device, with less free motion then the Sliding tethers.

Anchor Styles:
1.   Post Collar Anchor is the round, spring-loaded mechanism that has been in use for many years. The anchors are bolted to the helmet, and the HANS® tethers attach the HANS® to the helmet, and the HANS® can be separated from the helmet easily.  It has been recently improved to accommodate both Snell SAH and SA helmets.

2.  Quick Click Anchor is the shackle mechanism that gives the sliding tether its quick-disconnect capability.  A quick pull on the orange string allows the driver to put the HANS® on while still in the car if desired.
    * LW2 Lightweight Anchor: The lightest and least expensive Anchor style. Permanently attaches the helmet to the HANS® Device.

The head & neck restraint Experts
What Does A Head & Neck Restraint Do?

The most common fatal racing injury is the basilar skull fracture. Non-fatal head and neck injuries are also the biggest reason why a driver may miss days or weeks of works.  Well design head & neck restraints help to protect against these injuries.

In a crash, a driver's torso is restrained by their multi point harness. Without a head & neck restraint, their head/helmet is free to whip and injuries can occur.  If the whipping exceeds certain limits, the base of the skull breaks, severing the arteries that supply the brain, and the driving bleeds to death.

The best head & neck restraints also limit the amount of distance a user's head/helmet moved in an impact as hitting something during an incident can cause additional injuries

Fatal injuries can happen at any speed if the crash is severe enough.  Dale Earnhardt died of a basilar skull fracture yet hit the wall at only 43 mph.  He was not wearing a head & neck restraint.  In contrast, Ritchie Hearn hit the wall at over 200 mph.  His only injury was a broken foot - and he credits the HANS Device with saving his life.
Industry Leaders Since 1981
Despite claims you might see elsewhere, recent SFI 38.1 recertification testing has again confirmed that HANS® Devices continue to offer Industry-leading performance.  Check out the graph to the right.  What's more, rest assured we have never published our best results.  Why?  We figure that providing typical results is simply the best way of presenting safety product data to racers.  Wonder if the competition sets the same high standards?  So do we.

The HANS® Device is the only head and neck restraint trusted and required by NASCAR, Formula 1, A1GP, World Rally, ALMS, GP2, Champ Car, IROC, GrandAm and many more.
Comparison Graph  Truth in Advertising
HANS® Performance is the only head and neck restraint manufacturer with its own in-house test laboratory.  Our equipment permits us to conduct a range of performance tests, including the ability to run simple sled tests.  We use our test facility for both production control and product development.  For high-G sled testing, we tend to use the Delphi Engineering Center in Vandalla, Ohio, as it chouses one of the few test sleds in the world capable of creating the SFI 38.1 crash environment.

HANS® Standard Fixed Tether for Kids

The nylon tethers on a HANS® Device are a critical portion of the restraint system. They function just like your harness belts and, just like your harness, they should be replaced any time they have been involved in a significant impact, or after two years of use.

Upgrade your HANS® device with a set of Quick-Disconnect Tethers! These tethers easily replace the fixed tethers on any current HANS® Device. Two tethers per kit, enough for one HANS® Device. Tethers are embroidered with SFI and FIA logos.

Fixed Tether   $40

need to be a little shorter)

HANS® Sport II Device 
SFI 38.1 - SFI Certified and FIA 8858 Homologated Certified      MADE IN U.S.A.

The Sport II Device  is the newest achievement  in the development of safe and effective head-and-neck restraints from HANS® Performance Products.  It is designed for drivers in cars with tight, constrained cockpit areas, but will be a great safety advantage for any car or driver. 

The Sport II is made from a new super-structural carbon-blend polymer from DuPont, injection molded under very high pressure for unsurpassed strength and durability.   It is tested to the same standards as the Pro and Sport models, and performs exactly the same.  At just under 900 grams, the Sport II is almost 25% lighter than the Sport 1.

Less weight means more comfort and the lower, rounded collar makes getting into and out of the car much easier with less chance of obstruction by roll-bars and halos. 

The Sport II comes standard with a recessed sliding tether and improved, flat-mounted tether carrier.
