Douglas EZ Pro Snap

Sports helmets, particularly football helmets, have undergone substantial changes over the last 50 years. Helmets are retained by a chin strap laced through buckles that snap onto the helmet. The buckles integrate ordinary snaps similar to snaps on a jacket. The chin strap fixes the helmet in position and is designed to retain the helmet on a player’s head. Many current chin strap buckles become unsnapped during game play on impact or by other game circumstances, resulting in helmets coming off during play. As sports such as football have become higher velocity contests, helmets are coming off at increasing and alarming rates causing potential danger to participants.

Youth players often lack sufficient strength to properly snap current buckles. This results in incomplete engagement and uncertain stability and retention. Youth players are also often unsure when current buckles are actually properly engaged as a definitive “ snap” is often unattainable.

  • The EZ Pro Snap is designed to look and feel like a current buckle and snap for familiarity and seamless integration onto a current helmet.
  • The EZ Pro Snap is designed to engage with ease and certainty allowing even youth athletes to secure their chin strap all by themselves.
  • The EZ Pro Snap is designed not to come off unless both release buttons are pressed.
  • The Ez Pro Snap is made of high impact resistant and non-abrasive plastic.

Air Management Technology

The protective padding (cushion) of the shoulder pad is made of open cell foam. Within the foam are thousands of tiny air cells. By adhering the outer fabric to the foam, a sealed environment is created trapping the air inside of the cushion. When an outside force is exerted on to the shoulder pad shell (load spreader), the force causes the shell to push on the cushion, forcing the air to move within the cells of the foam out 360 degrees, thereby lessening the blow from being felt straight in to the point of impact. There is a much wider area of dispersion, resulting in less trauma to the body.


How To Measure


Nogginsport Inc. guarantees that each Noggin is free of manufacturing defects and workmanship for a period of one year from the date of purchase when used as intended without any alterations. Each Noggin should be inspected prior to each use.

To ensure maximum performance of the Noggin, the skullcap is to be worn under a properly fitted certified helmet. Nogginsport Inc. makes no representation nor guarantees that the use of their product will prevent the occurrence of a concussion, mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), or head injury. The Noggin should never be worn without a certified helmet. The Noggin offers no protection from neck, spinal or certain types of brain injuries. Severe head, brain and/or spinal injuries including concussions, paralysis or even death may occur despite using the Noggin.

Contact sports can result in serious and even fatal injuries. Participation in these sports implies that players acknowledge and accept these types of injuries. Noggin Sport seeks to reduce these risks; however, it will not eliminate injuries but may reduce their severity and frequency.

The Noggin has been CSA and HECC tested, at the Intertek Lab in New York City. It has surpassed all the safety standards provided. These have not been reconditioned or altered in any way.
