HANS Device Must be Recertified for 2012

Starting Jan. 1, 2012, Head and Neck Restraints must be recertified every five years to receive the SFI Foundation’s conformance sticker.

Competitors who want to use a HANS Device purchased in 2007 or earlier must have their device recertified. Devices passing the inspection will receive a new SFI 38.1 conformance sticker marked with the inspection date. HANS Performance Products will certify the HANS Device for a $15 fee plus return shipping. (You will be given an estimate of shipping at checkout, but we will charge you the actual UPS rate).

  • It is rare for a device to fail the recertification inspection.
  • We regularly see devices that need replacement rubber on the legs or have tethers that are more than five years old and therefore need to be replaced.
  • If the friction rubber or tethers must be replaced, customers will charged for these items at the standard price. (Tether prices: $20 to $100. Friction rubber: $75.)
