HANS SLIDING TETHER DESIGN GAINS U.K. REGISTRATION

Atlanta, Georgia (November 3rd, 2008) - The U.K. Patent Office has registered two designs of the Vision Advantage PLUS sliding tether system that gives HANS Device users an unrivalled range of vision. Registration formally recognizes the originality of the design. It gives HANS Performance Products exclusive rights to use and protect the Vision Advantage PLUS design.

CEO Mark Stiles said, "We have a range of submissions in front of U.S. and International patent offices for the Vision Advantage PLUS sliding tether system. On this occasion, the U.K. came through first. We expect others to follow."

The new Vision Advantage PLUS sliding tether system permits improvements in left and right visibility by allowing easy but controlled rotation of a racer's helmet. The proven results are tethers that allow over four times the field of view versus competing head and neck restraints.

The HANS Device is worn by more than 65,000 racers worldwide and continues to be the #1 choice for performance, #1 for vision and #1 for winners.
