The Simpson & Hans devices are made to prevent the head from going forward during impact (Earnhardt)which is the issue in an auto frontal type crash since the body is restrained by the seat belts, there are NO belts in a kart seat, the entire body can move forward in a kart frontal crash, the issue in karts is to keep the head from over-extending backwards since there NO roll cages on the kart, think about it , there is NO pushing or pulling with either device, my son has used the 360 device in his karting days and now uses his Hans in SCCA
