A precious testimony from the racetrack:

“My name is Jay Arnold, I have worked track rescue for going on two decades. I have worked track rescue and medical  for all forms of motor sports, including F-1, Indy Cars, NASCAR, Sprint Cars, NHRA, and most smaller series that run on road courses and oval tracks. The Lid Lifter by Stand21 has to be the greatest safety device since the introduction of the Hans Device. Every single driver, in every form of motor sports, should be wearing one of these. Having worked many very serious wrecks, I know the struggle of taking a drivers helmet off safely, without further injuring the driver. One wrong move and the driver could be paralyzed or worse. I watched the demonstration of the Lid Lifter and was truly amazed by how effortlessly the helmet came off without any strain to the neck of the driver. While simple in design,  it is monumental to the safety of the driver. I can’t express enough how every single driver should be using this product”
