    I have a wrist boot for my puck style computer and the watch style band does not fit well over f my drysuit. Has anyone turned one of these into a bungee mount yet and cut the band off? If so I am looking for recomendations.
    Thanks

    I got an old used NitekHE that I only used for occasional situations. It had a really crappy attachment strap, so I wanted to do the same thing. The slots that held the strap in place were too narrow to accept the thickness of the bungee. What I finally did was put two zip ties through those slots and pull them tight. I then attached the bungee to the zip ties. It worked perfectly.

    Why not go with the DSS mounts? I use one on my suunto compass and love it.

    I DIY'd one for a TUSA computer and saw a DIY'd one for Scubapro Galileo.

    Ya I have one on my sk7 and love it, but the wrist band on my computer boot is useless with a drysuit.

    Yes. You can melt holes in the the stubs with a hot nail for two separate continuous bungee loops,ie, four holes.

    Did you go through the stubs of the straps or through the bottom inside of the boot?
