No, the NecksGen tethers come a fixed length which has been
predetermined in testing to allow proper protection. However,
all helmets are different in design and manufacture, therefore
SAH2010 pre-drilled holes may be in different positions.
Drivers also have different neck lengths. Some drivers may
be able to move their head forward and still not feel the
tension of the tethers, this is ok. In the event of an accident,
the unit is held back by the seat belts, whereas the body,
neck & head will move forward and away from the device.
It is at this point, that the tethers will tension up to
minimize neck tension.
