NogginLOC™ is a mechanical fastening “system” designed to keep chinstraps attached securely to helmets of all types. NogginLOC™ uses a unique external pin (or recessed pin and socket) attached to the helmet, and a unique receptacle fastener mounted to the patent pending NogginLOC™ fully adjustable buckles (or on the chinstrap itself). When the two pieces are connected together, there is a secure connection that keeps the helmet safely on the head. NogginLOC™ is many more times secure than fasteners currently on the market. At the same time, when needed, NogginLOC™ can be very easily removed, even by small children.

Last year, helmets came off an average of twice per game. Averaged out over the course of a season you can get a helmet coming off nearly 200 times a year (not counting practices).


US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Each year, US emergency departments treat an estimated 173,285 sports- and recreation-related traumatic brain injuries, including concussions, among children and adolescents, from birth to 19 years.


US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

During the last decade, emergency room visits for sports- and recreation-related traumatic brain injuries, including concussions, among children and adolescents increased by 60%.


Popular Mechanics

More than 100 concussions are recorded each season in the NFL.


SmartPlanet — CNET — CBS

Sensors showed that an average high school player is taking about 650 impacts to the head each season, and some players topped out at 2,000. Concussions occurred when the hit comes in at 90 to 100g of force. Thats like smashing your head against a wall                                    at 20 miles per hour.


National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment

Currently there are no helmet standards in existence that are concussion specific.

Helmets fly off and injuries occur because of poor strap attachment design. The NogginLOC™ snap is designed to open only when you want it to. That’s a game-changer. Injuries occur because helmets come off during impacts. More padding, stronger straps, improved plastics — none of those will keep your child’s helmet in place. NogginLOC™ will.
