Echo Helmet Quick Release Buckle
Must have for helmets without a built in quick release.
My best friend had the plastic break on one of his after using it for a few months. Not a big deal though. I'm sure contacting the manufacturer they will just send a new plastic portion to slide over the metal piece. I love mine so far. Makes taking the helmet on and off faster and more convenient. Easy to do both with gloves already on. Great for jumping off to run in a gas station or during a traffic stop.

Unless you prefer the "D" rings I would purchase this product, easy install, saves time and frustration when adjusting your helmet, especially while wearing gloves

So easy to use, feels very secure.
What a pain unstrapping my helmet every time I went into a store or went in to pay for my gas. I felt like I looked like I was going to rob the place if I left my helmet on. Soooo much easier to take it off and put it on now. Also, when I wrecked it held just fine and was easy to remove my helmet when I was laying on the side of the highway. Was able too transfer it to my new helmet, no problem.

Love these things
I have been using these on ATV helmets for about 10 years and won't buy a helmet without getting these. It makes taking and putting on helmets so much faster

does what it says
Easy to install, and does what it's supposed to. I am used to a ratchet style quick release on previous helmets, which I would still prefer. This one is a little cumbersome when you're fumbling around and not looking at what you're doing. Maybe that will subside as I use it more. Either way, it feels secure and hasn't failed, and it wasn't a huge investment, so I would recommend it.

great quick release
Works great on my helmet, makes it much easier for when I forget and put the gloves on first.

difficult to close
My previous helmet (Nolan) came with a quick release latch so when I was shopping for a new helmet I wanted that feature. The helmet I chose did not have that but then I saw this product and tried it.
First, it was easy to install on the helmet BUT it is difficult to match the 2 ends up in order to close it when the helmet is on your head. The design of the Nolan quick release was much better in that it had a long 'tongue' which was simple to insert into the female end. This product has a small "C" shaped end that is NOT easy to insert into the female end. I even attempted it in front of a mirror and it was difficult, no way this would work out on the side of the highway etc.
I also tried this on my wife's helmet but she didn't have any better luck, I returned it and hope some one makes a better designed release.
