How do I clean / wash my firesuit?
Sparco recommends dry cleaning your suit to preserve the life of your safety garment for as long as possible. Your Sparco Race suit should be treated with the same respect as your Sunday Suit. After each driving session, please remove the suit whenever possible and hang dry to remove moisture and to prevent grease/oil from staining the suit while working on your car.
Washing instructions: If you wash your suit, Sparco recommends hand washing or washing it in on a delicate cycle in the washing machine inside a garment wash bag with COLD water. Please make sure that the belt and collar are closed on the suit, to prevent the velcro from causing damage to the nomex fabric. Woolite soap is recommended as it is a non-abrasive detergent. DO NOT use bleach or anything similar. When drying the suit, always let the suit drip dry, indoors (out of the sunlight).

The belt should be wider than the mounting bracket. It is designed so the belt gets folded over on each side to provide extra reinforcement at the point where the bracket pulls on the webbing. (See belt looping guide)
How can I recertify my expired harnesses?
Unfortunately we do not offer re-certification for our harnesses. Due to the nature of racing, our harnesses endure a variety of elements including UV light that over time will degrade the webbing. We do not offer re-webbed harness.
