Eccentric tear-off posts let you adjust the tension of your tearoff shields for easier installation. The trouble is that rotating them for adjustment tends to loosen the mounting screws, which lets them slip and lose tension. Then you have to go inside the shield to tighten the screw, which loosens the tearoffs... You have better things to do on a busy race weekend!
These clever posts look more or less like standard (but high-quality) aluminum tear-off posts. They install just like regular posts with no modifications required. But the special mounting screws have a standard Philips head on one end and a hex socket recess at the other end. The posts are drilled all the way through so you can access the hex socket from the outside.
To protect the edges of the post from damage, the conventional full-width screwdriver slot has been replaced with a narrow 1/4" slot. This helps to hold the scredriver in place, which also helps prevent damage to the shield. With the hex socket accessible from the outside, you can adjust and tighten the posts without ever opening the shield. Your crew can even change your tear-offs while you're sitting in the car!
Kit includes two black anodized aluminum posts, 3 special mounting screws (two for the posts plus one spare), an angled 1/4" screwdriver, and an "Allen" hex key. One kit is enough for one face shield.
