XS Scuba Tank Bands Conversion Kit
Rating: Cheap, Good Quality 07/05/2008
Budget item. Pay 3xs as much for stainless buckle straps (apiece!). Good value. Worked great for a week in the Turks and Caicos w/o STA adapter for my Apex single wing (junk wing, too much lift BTW) and harness. Works well for traveling stage kits, which is what mine are about to become.
XS Scuba Din To Yoke Regulator Adapter
Rating: Glue? Epoxy? Its certainly not welded. 07/05/2008
The yoke portion of the adapter screws into a round machined metal piece into which the DIN regulator screw from the other end. The machined piece is attached to the yoke portion with some sort of brownish glue. I know this because the yoke portion twisted off rather easily leaving me with the machined piece on my DIN threads. The machined piece was only finally removed when I used a monkey wrench on the piece (fist I double wrapped it with an old silicone mask strap). No harm no foul. Just be aware. I was stuck with the piece on my XTX200 for an entire dive trip without the ability to reinstall the dust cap (DIN screw-on cap). Final thought, take a yoke dust cap and all is good.
