You asked! We listened!

Let me introduce you the Fist Free Breakaway Connector for X-deep Bolt Snap (S size)!

There are three versions of clip with inner/outer diameter:
(A) 10/18mm
(B) 11/19mm
(C) 12/20mm

Was too lazy to go to storage room to get some hoses and I had only my Deep6 reg with their orange hoses to try on, so made three different size to fit different hoses.

It was a dirty job, but somebody had to do it! :))

Impressive!
If you sell them, I’d be interested in one perhaps.

just download and STL file from the site and print out. I bet you can find someone with 3D printer as they are very popular now. it is just 10 mins print.
or you can order it from any 3D printing service.

How often do you need to break-away your primary second stage? Is this a thing?

looks nicely made.

In backmount you dont need it, but in SM it is a way to share air in case of emergency.

How the hell do I do that, I hit the "download all files" but I can't see anything with STL on it? Sorry, I've never done this before lol

Great job and great idea.
Would that design fit regular bolt snap?
Also which size do you suggest?
I will ask around for someone with a 3D printer.
Thanks.

I've always just used rubber o-rings where breakaway connections were required. This should work as well.
