DGX Tank Strap, Standard with S/S Cam Buckle URL for this product

This standard { 2 in | 5.1 cm } width tank strap is low weight, strong marine grade stainless steel cam buckle design that cinches very tight and includes a sewn-in non-slip pad to protect the cylinder from being scratched by the buckle. The non-slip pad also prevents the cylinder from shifting once the cam buckle has been secured. Excess webbing is secured using Velcro, which will also prevent the buckle from accidentally coming open. The standard length of { 36 in | 91.4 cm } will easily accommodate 6.9-inch, 7.25-inch and 8-inch cylinders. Priced and sold EACH, if you need a pair order two.

DGX Single Tank Adapter PLUS two S/S Cam Buckle Straps URL for this product

DGX Cam Buckle Tank Straps are also available in a package of two straps together with a DGX Single Tank Adapter (STA). For divers who frequently switch their harness, backplate and wing between double tank and single tank rigs, or between backmount and sidemount configurations, the STA is a convenient way to attach cam straps to a backplate without having to thread the cam straps through the backplate slots and reweave the cam buckles. Constructed of marine grade passivated 304 stainless steel. There are two lengths of adapter, a standard {15 in | 38 cm} / {1.3 lb | 0.6 kg} version appropriate for most aircells, and a short {11.75 in | 30 cm} / {1.0 lb | 0.45 kg} version appropriate for smaller aircells and travel. Both versions include all stainless hardware consisting of pairs of both { 1 in | 2.5 cm } and { 1.5 in | 3.8 cm } long 5/16-18 thread carriage bolts (with some backplates the longer bolts are needed) on { 11 in | 27.9 cm } centers, washers, and wing nuts, along with two rubber pads to protect the tank.

Tank Strap, Quick Release with S/S Hinge Buckle URL for this product

S/S Hingle Buckle Tank Strap The quick-release hinged buckle tank strap design is often called the "ScubaPro" style buckle. These are very easy to close and yet cinch the strap exceptionally tight. The standard { 2 in | 5.1 cm } width strap has a stainless steel hoop and buckle feature that allows complete separation of the buckle from the opposite end of the strap. This allows for removing and replacing your tank without having to lift the BC over the tank and jiggle the strap into place, or having to unthread the strap from the buckle. The length is adjustable to accommodate 7.25-inch and 8-inch cylinders and includes a sewn in non-slip pad and tank protector. Priced and sold EACH, if you need a pair order two.

This style buckle has a reputation for pinching fingers. At the risk of seeming politically incorrect, many women prefer the hinged buckle because it requires less strength to close a tight cinch and they are less likely to damage their fingernails when closing. Women protecting their nails will close the buckle with the palm or heel of their hand and tend to keep their fingers out of the hinge where it could be pinched. Just a thought...

> Dive Rite Tank Strap w/SS Roller Cam Buckle URL for this product

The Dive Rite Roller Cam Buckle Tank Strap is the standard { 2 in | 5.1 cm } width with a marine grade stainless steel roller cam buckle. Nylon rollers on the cam strap make it easier to close and protect the cylinder from being scratched by the buckle. A position adjustable non-slip pad prevents the cylinder from shifting once the cam buckle has been secured. Excess webbing is secured using Velcro, which will also prevent the buckle from accidentally coming open. Priced and sold EACH, if you need a pair order two.

The standard length of { 36 in | 91.4 cm } will easily accommodate 6.9-inch, 7.25-inch and 8-inch cylinders, which includes the most popular sizes of cylinders. There is a special short length of { 28 in | 71.1 cm } for smaller diameter pony cylinders. The long length of { 52 in | 132.1 cm } will encircle a set of doubles. The roller cam buckle strap comes standard on all Dive Rite Transpac XT, VoyagerPac, and TravelPac systems.

Dive Rite Tank Strap, Narrow w/Low Profile Cam Buckle URL for this product

Stainless Tank Straps

The Dive Rite Low Profile Tank Strap is a narrow { 1.5 in | 3.8 cm } width and includes a compact version of the stainless steel cam buckle. The strap is not sewn to the buckle, but attached with a belt slide which allows the strap length to be trimmed to a perfect fit. The { 36 in | 91.4 cm } length can be adjusted to fit the smallest diameter pony as well as standard diameter tanks. Includes removable and position adjustable non-slip pad. Priced and sold EACH, if you need a pair order two.

Because the strap is not sewn to the buckle, it can also be reconfigured as a quick-release style strap with the addition of the Dive Rite DR-BC2036-QR Adapter; see the pricelist below to order. The Low Profile Tank Strap configured with the QR adapter is so versatile it has become a favorite with rebreather divers.

Highland Tank Straps, Quick Release w/ Cam Buckle (PAIR) URL for this product

The Highland Tank Straps w/Quick Release Cam Buckle has a hoop/buckle feature that allows complete separation of the buckle from the opposite end of the strap. This allows for removing and replacing your tank without having to lift the BC over the tank and jiggle the strap into place, or having to unthread the strap from the buckle. The standard { 2 in | 5.1 cm } wide tank strap has a 316 stainless steel buckle with a higher lift, which increases holding force, causing the buckle to snap into place and eliminating unintentional release. The length is adjustable to accommodate 7.25-inch and 8-inch cylinders. Recently improved to include non-slip PADS and protectors. Sold as a PAIR.

Mounting Plates for Doubles (set of 2) URL for this product

The stainless steel plates firmly secure any integrated harness and soft backplate system such as the Dive Rite TransPac or Hollis HTS2 to any set of double tanks that use industry-standard bands and bolts. They are curved to fit the spacing of double tanks, and are the only item needed to connect a soft backplate to a set of double tanks. The soft backplate and the wing end up being sandwiched between the double tanks and the mounting plates, eliminating the need for a metal backplate. Sold as a pair.

Highland V Trim Weight Pouch URL for this product

The V Weight Pouch can be used to add trim weight in the center groove of a set of doubles between the cylinders and backplate. Perfect for trimming double AL-80's, which otherwise become too buoyant at the end of the dive. The pouch measures { 11 in | 27.9 cm } from center to center and fits on the cylinder band bolts held in place by the backplate. One nice feature of the pouch is you can precisely adjust the amount of weight based on your needs and the type of plate. Up to { 7 lb | 3.2 k } of lead shot can be poured into the pouch, and the double Velcro® closure guarantees the opening will remain sealed. For extra security, we like to put a cable tie on the closure and we include one in the package. Shot weight is not included, we just cut the corner off an ordinary soft bag weight and pour the shot into the V-pouch.

XS Scuba Tail Weight Pouch The Tail Weight Pouch is designed for divers using back plates who find that they need additional weight at the bottom of the plate. The pouch will hold up to

If you prefer to use hard or soft weights, the wide opening of the mouth allows insertion of up to { 5 lb | 2.3 kg }. The pouch can be attached to the bottom tank band, between the cylinder and the wing, with the cylinder band bolts or with a metal assembly screw.

Get the Lead Out!

Adding weight is rarely the solution to a trim problem. In many cases, just removing excess weight from the waist belt will reduce the size of the compensating gas bubble and is often a better approach to adjusting trim. However, sometimes the amount of weight is correct but it needs to be redistributed to correct a trim problem, particularly if aluminum cylinders or drysuits are involved. Proceed cautiously and try to remove weight somewhere else when adding a trim weight because in many cases the diver already has too much weight and adding weight, even trim weight, just makes the problems worse.
