    Thank you for this post! My son actually has this chin strap on his helmet as do the rest of his team mates. Earlier in the season one of our players sustained a 3″ gash in his arm from this buckle on the chin strap and was out for the rest of the season! I have forwarded this information to our sons coach and league commissioner!
