Equipment fitting is much more than ensuring proper fit, it also aids in reducing risk of concussions and injury to your players. Whether you are a parent, equipment manager or coach, it is important to know and understand the proper techniques to fitting pads and helmets before an athlete steps onto the field.
Not only is it a critical step to equipment maintenance, it can also get the most out of your equipment. Here are the steps when a helmet gets reconditioned.
Face masks, hardware and decals are removed.
Painted (high gloss, matte, or metallic) helmets are sanded down to remove any existing paint. Unpainted (gloss) helmets skip this step.
Helmets are cleaned and sanitized by hot, pressurized water and then rinsed to remove all residue.
Helmets are closely inspected for hairline cracks and other defects that may have been obscured by paint.
Interior parts are re-installed, including any necessary replacement parts.
Note – additional charges apply for select replacement parts.
Paint is reapplied to all high gloss, matte and metallic-colored helmets. Gloss helmets skip this step.
Face masks are re-attached with the proper attachment hardware.
Original manufacturer warnings, product labels and a recertification seal are applied.
Helmet is fully reconditioned and recertified – ready for the next season!
