Rating: Fits tank well, but may not be 7.29" as stated
Reviewer: Kenneth S.,
While site advertised this as a 7.29 inch boot for Sherwood HP 3500 PSI steel tanks (which is what these tanks need), it arrived with a sticker on it that said 7.25 inches. That said it did fit and has not split yet like other 7.25 inch boots have in the past. So far so good. I hope it works because boots for these tanks are hard to find.

TANKS & VALVES: Sherwood Tank Boot
Aluminum Tanks Aluminum tanks are cost efficient, long lasting, and readily available, which is why they are easily the most common scuba diving tanks in the world. Lighter than steel tanks, aluminum dive tanks are easier to transport and swim with, giving your shoulders and arms a break on long treks.
Because of their light weight, some aluminum tanks will begin to float at the end of a dive, once the oxygen supply is nearly depleted. To combat this, it's common to counter-weight an aluminum dive tank with approximately 4 pounds. However, 'Compact Neutral' aluminum tanks are made with thicker walls, which increase the weight and help to counteract the positive buoyancy problems at the end of a long dive.
A Tank boot will prevent corrosion and rust under the boot, and allow ou stand tanks upright.
