Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the purpose/function of those bulky facemask clips some teams used in the 80s and early 90s?

Those might have been some kind of shock absorbing device - so the facemask could "flex" a little bit if someone pushed on it before the push started moving the helmet. The only other thing I can think of is it was some kind of quick release device.
