The shoulder pads to protect the payer from collisions with other players and they are probably the most intricate pieces of equipment that the players wear. Shoulder pads consist of a hard plastic shell with foam padding underneath. The pads fit over the shoulders and the chest and rib area, and are secured with various snaps and buckles. Shoulder pads are what give football players their "broad-shouldered" look.

What should the shoulders on my suit be doing? I know it sounds silly but I think the shoulder pads in my suit are too big but the assistant told me that it is part of the fashionable design.

Obviously I haven't seen your specific suit so I can only answer with general guidelines but your shoulder pads shouldn't come out any wider than your shoulders.

If you stand sideways against a wall, the shoulder pad shouldn't touch the wall before your arm does.

Generally you should trust your gut instinct and if it doesn't feel right when you look in the mirror, you won't be comfortable in it.

Need to remove the cover from a britax eclipse

Press and hold down the harness release button. With your other hand below the chest pads, pull the shoulder straps forward as far as possible. With the Eclipse Si fully reclined, open the seat-belt guard at the back of the shell. Pull the yoke out from behind the seat and unhook both shoulder straps. Pull the cover from the top of the seat so that you can see the slots in the seat shell. Pull each shoulder strap and chest pad strap forward and towards the centre of the shell, easing the metal tab and straps through the slot. Then thread them through to the front of the cover. Unfasten the buckle and remove the comfort pad. Gently pull the cover off the seat, easing the shoulder straps, chest pads, harness buckle and adjuster strap through the slots in the cover.

Replace rear break pads on 2005 spectra

Don't do this if your not comfortable working on cars ... someone could get hurt ...or your car could. Make sure front wheel are blocked and car is in either park or first gear.
  1. Don't set the parking break.
  2. Remove the two shoulder bolts on back of caliper .. .10mm I think.
  3. Pull caliper up and forward. Don't let it hank by the brake line.
  4. Remove pad, making sure to not lose the small clip that holds onto the ears of the pads.
  5. You need to get a special tool to screw in the piston that is on the caliper. This can be obtained for about $15 at most automotive store.
  6. Be careful to not tear the rubber piston boot when screwing piston back in ... go slow.
  7. Wipe caliper off of any dirt. Don't use compressed air. Use a small wire brush to remove any corrosion in the area where the pad ears go, if needed.
  8. Replace new pads into caliper and remount caliper onto rotor.
  9. Screw shoulder bolts back in. Don't force them as the shoulder fits into a hole in the backing plate. You should be able to screw them in by hand. Make sure there tight.
  10. Get in car and work parking brake about 5 times. This will set the pads
