Reviewer: George S.
I like retractors because they give you the freedom of dropping gadgets while not using then and stay streamlined. This one was purchased to hang my lobster gauge but I have more for my SPG, and other. I have purchased my first one 200 dives ago and it still works, so I would say they also last a long time. And you cant beat the price...

I wont have a chance to try it in the water until next week, but the construction of it is very good and the mechanism operates very smoothly. I dont anticipate any problems with it and am glad I bought it.

Reviewer: Gary W.  -  View all my reviews
expected a retractor i could "hide" or into the bc. if thats what youre looking for, this isnt the model you want. however, this model has a rugged design with a steel wire line that "clips" onto any d-ring on the bc. we were still able to use this and will be trying it soon in open water.

Rating: A must have retractor!
Reviewer: russ walby  -  View all my reviews
I am so glad that ever after the price of this item I went ahead & got this retractor. The cord is plenty long enough and the power this has to hold what ever you chose in its place untill you trully need it. As far as being able to rely on it functioning with sand, salt or what ever you encounter & get on it / in it theres zero percent chance of it hanging up or getting stuck on you since it self cleans as its oppend and retracted. It comes with multiple anchor/fastners so you can mount it almost anywhere youd like. Cant say enough on what a great product this is. An absolute must have for the serious diver.

Rating: Great Retractable
Reviewer: Stevan Dupus  -  View all my reviews
Got a new BCD and wanted to add the same retractable I was using on my old one. Perfect length and tension for my console. My only complaint is the optional mounting stud is a little small and inadequate.

Great item. Holds consoles weight no problem. Keeps it neat and out of the way, yet easy to access. I need more of these for other items.

    Just wondering how this connects of my console gauges (Apeks 2-gauge)? I looked at it and theres not many connecting points. Thanks.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Brian, you would use the the ring attachment that would go around the rubber bar on either side of the main body. Then you would attach the ring part to the retractor part.
