This is a systematic review to determine which method, combined tool approach or quick release attachment system, removes a football helmet facemask quicker. Evidence indicates both methods for facemask removal can be quick and efficient. However, the quick release attachment system was quicker and produced less movement of the head compared to the combined tool approach during the facemask removal process. In emergent football cervical spine injuries, the quick release attachment system is better to use in removing the helmet facemask than the combined tool approach.
