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


What is this........ "sidemount"..........you speak of?

Only the second best way to dive.

First best way to dive is as always: Dive Naked!

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.
for regular bolt snap there is another model. look at that site. there are actually two models.
Xdeep did not fit cuz it has a different ring so I designed this!

I've always just used rubber o-rings where breakaway connections were required. This should work as well.
not really.... in sidemount training for example there is a skill where you donate our CLIPPED 2nd stage. o-ring config wont work, as you will have to replace oring after you do this skill :)

also orings did not work for me very well as they get very brittle when exposed to sea and sun. several dives and... your clip is gone! i

after many more than several dives using two orings and cable ties I change these fixings during maintenance

Great clip design! I have also used 0-rings in the past, but this looks like cool BC Bling. For the few bucks to print one, I think it's great, Well done!

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! :))

X-Deep bolt snaps are too expensive to lose.
