Hello all,

My Scubapro Aladin Sport Matrix strap / bungee mounted rotted away, which is quite common on these models.
I've signalled the rot issue to Scubapro multiple times. When the computers are used daily in the tropics, ie a high humidity environment, the rot starts with the straps, then after a while the actual mount case breaks down - it’s my 4th rep, and I decided to try something new this time.

I found these custom 3D printed bungee mount adapters, which are made of hard plastic -

I checked with Scubapro and all their puck style computers are the same dimensions and fit the same boot sets, meaning they can be used with Aladin 2G / TEC 2G / TEC /Prime and also Sports, or Sport Matrix like mine.
It's a tight fit, but works great! I'm pretty sure it will last longer than other materials, so highly recommended for people in the same situation.

I've added some pictures of the issue and fix.



cheers!
