I bought two of these, one for my BC and one for my backpack that I use for spearfishing. Just wish I had found these before as they work GREAT. Id just keep an eye on the people on the "fancy" dive boats that change out your tanks so they know not to overtighten them.

Rating: Excellent Product!
Reviewer: Steve Ditmars
This simple to install accessory is an excellent addition to anyones scuba pack. Remove the old tank strap and feed the Bio-Tank lock thru the backpack and it is installed. Slice the strap over the tank and tighten and a you have eliminated tank slip. During a recent resort dive trip, the only problem I encountered was explaining how to properly tighten the lock. Since I always check my own gear, this was not a major problem. If tank slippage is your problem, this is well worth the money.

Rating: Best addon ive bought
Reviewer: Gordon T.  -  View all my reviews
This thing is great and well worth the price, Ive had no problems with it what-so-ever. Its easy to put on, and gets 10 times tighter than i could ever get my standard BC strap. It slid right over my rental tanks this weekend without any adjustment from the setting of my own tank. Buy this, youll never worry about a slipping tank again.

Rating: Superb Product
Reviewer: Richard Todd  -  View all my reviews
This is the second Bio Lock I have purchased. I have one for each of my B.C.s It is so easy to set up and tighten. Never worry about strap slippage as the spring keeps the tension on at all times. I love the softness of the strap as well. It allows for a much flatter package in you suitcase. Highly recommended!

Reviewer: Richard S.
Havent got to use it yet but the sale was great. It was shipped very promptly and arrived much sooner than I expected. Thanks shipping department! The lock itself looks like it will work well although I am concerned that dive operations will try to tighten it too tight. The instructions say to leave a 2 mil gap so we will see. It also doesnt have as much play when it is loosened so it make it a little harder to get on and off the tank.

Reviewer: Geoffrey Rand  -  View all my reviews
I had a tank start slipping during a previous dive. It will never happen again with this tank strap. It is an extremely secure fitting strap that gives you reassurance your tank is fasten properly. It took a little bit of time setting it up at first, but now that its on, its a snap. Just a few twists, and Im all set. Very cool.

This lock is easy to use holds the tank rock solid. No more yanking, tugging and twisting tanks and BC. Will definately be transferring to any new BC in the future.

Every diver needs one of these, they are without a doubt the easy way to deal with a tank and BCD and not that darn strap.
