Thanks, I had looked at them too and had the same concerns you had, but based on your review I think I'll add one to my Christmas list.
I know!Cold mornings?
It was below 30f out here in WI this am and stupid me still rode in....
I just cant give it up (yet) even if I loose my fingers/toes to frostbite...HA!
Dang, you're slow!Takes 2 minutes to install.
Well, I have to say I haven't experienced any of that so far. I admit it doesn't look like much separated, but once put together, it seems to be quite strong to me ...and it is DOT rated. *shrug*I had the exact one on one of my helmets. POS, is the term that best describes them. It is flimsy, and doesn't alway engage correctly. I would put one of those on one of my enemies helmets.
IMHO, the words "quick" and "release" do not belong together in motorcycling. If you were going to use it on a bicycle helmet, I would say it's "OK".
I would say "Don't do it!!!"
Remember... when looking at my working times on projects, keep in mind that I'm only using one hand.Dang, you're slow!
