An all-new attachment system! The faceguard is locked into place but – if needed – a simple quarter turn releases the faceguard! Comes standard on the ION 4D and Elite Series Helmets from Schutt or as an individual upgrade.
Our exclusive Quarter-Turn Release System uses hardware (screws and T-Nuts) that makes it easier to attach and detach faceguards from a football helmet. The Quarter-Turn Release System requires larger holes be drilled into the helmet shell to accept its special hardware.
Therefore, you should only use the hardware from a Quarter-Turn Release System on helmet models that are specifically built to accept that hardware. Currently, those helmets are:
AiR XP Elite
DNA Pro+ Elite
In addition, you should not attach faceguards to the helmets listed above with hardware that is not designed for the Quarter Turn Release System. Doing so may compromise the helmet’s performance.
