Questions about this item:
i am looking for a tank band to replace the one i broke on my Mares Icon BC,will this work?Wouldnt I need a large size?
ROBERT G Assuming you are using a standard size tank (7"-8" in diameter), buy the standard band. FYI, read the specification tab, it spells it out.
CASEY G No these bands will work just fine...
RICHARD W Not sure about fit with a Mares BC. I bought this for my Oceanic and it fit perfectly and actually was a better band than the original.
ALEX S XS is the brand, not the size. The bands are standard size and I have used them on different backpacks and they work fine. Plenty of band length.
MATT N Hi, I have a set of these on my pony-size bail-out bottle and they work quite well - just check the cylinder diameter for your application, or measure with a string for a overall length, and check it against the specifications. I think you will be happy with these if they offer a set that will fit.
Do these straps have the rubber backing on them to Help grip the tank? I couldn't tell by the photo
STEVEN G No rubber backing - I used one for securing a pony tank and it works well.
ERIC Z No, they are just basic heavy duty straps with plastic buckle's and Velcro to secure the loose end.
ERIC H Nope, there are no rubber linings on these straps.
DANIEL R No, they don't have any rubber backing on them.
ROBERT B No rubber backing....yet for the price they work very well. I use them for my 30 cu in Pony bottle and have gone so far as using on my 133 STL tank and adding a 80 AL tank, as a pony, and the straps work well!
JOHN J Hi,
These bands acheive positive grip on the tank by using the ratcheting effect of the cam buckle, but do not have a rubber backing.
I use these bands for a single tank bc as well as for sidmount bands. They work very well.
LARRY V No they do not have a rubber backing.... When used in the double strap configuration they do very well at holding most 12L and 15L tanks
SIMON H They do not have a rubber backing, I have not had an issue with them coming loose. They have a positive click on the buckle which helps in getting the cam tight. Good quality and good price for a replacement strap and a spare!
DYLAN S No rubber backing but if properly adjusted they grip very well. I use them to hold a pony tank and I highly recommend them.
CARLOS R No, but these cams are so good that you do not need the rubber inserts to get a good grip on the tank, I use a 100cf steel tank and these cams have never lost their grip, even while diving from a boat.
Do they fit the standard Dive Rite backplates (stainless or aluminum)?
PHILIP L I use them on an OMS aluminum backplate and they work fine.
LEROY B If the backplate is similar to oms, yes. I have oms bc with backplate, and they do fit that one.
if the backplate has the needed slots then yes
view the pic of the packplate here, the two vertical slots by the bottom bolthole and two vertical slots by the top bolthole
if not they you will need a STA (Single Tank Adapter)
an STA uses the two straps to connect to the tank and has two bolts to allow you to connect to the backplate.
These come packaged as a PAIR right?
EBEN A I've purchased two sets of these since I was so happy with the first set. Yes, they come in pairs and they are of excellent quality. - Sincerely, Eben
ROBERT S Yes, they came as a pair. I used one for my pony tank mount and sold the second one to another diver.
RICHARD W Yes, there are two bands. I replaced a 10 yr old band on my BC recently with one of these and wish I had done it earlier. They are well worth the price.
SAM S Hi yes they come as a pair, I have a set these are good quality for the price.
JOSE D "Hi Doug I bought both the small and large set and they both come as a set of two. The small set (which is sorter) I use on my pony bottle. The large set I use on my 7.25 and 8.0 size tanks. Below is some info on these cam band that I copied from Leisure Pros web site. Hope this helps.
Whether you need a cylinder cam band for your pony bottle or your primary cylinder XS Scuba has a cam band for all your needs. The BP550 Cam Bands - Pair - Short Length (used to fit 4.0" to 5.0" cylinders), and the BP500 Cam Bands - Pair - Standard Length (used to fit 6.9" to 8.0" cylinders)."

JEFF J Yes, as the features page states, there are 2 bands in the package. Make sure to order the large one for normal tanks, the small are for pony bottles.
MATT B Yes these come as a pair. They're basically a pair of no-frills cam bands. Very solid construction and they do exactly what you want them to do; hold your tank. They don't have the fancy clip system that the XS Scuba SS straps do. It's a nice looking system, but you can't beat these for the price and the simplicity.
JOHN J Yes, I purchased these and they are for the pair (Two).
I use them for replacement bands for my recreational BC as well as for rigging my sidemount tanks.
These are a great value.
These bands come as a pair.
They fit 80 (12L) and 100 (15L) tanks and work quite well for reducing tank slip.
Good quality too.
Doug M Thanks for the help!
MIKE C Yes you get two of them in the package
will the short cam bands fit standard AL63 or AL80 tanks?
STEVEN S Yes they fit all standard tanks
RICHARD M Yes, they fit AL80's. I used them for the XS mini back inflator system. However, I quickly switched out to a true tech backplate wing system. More money, but great fit and quality. Worth the investment.
JOHN S Yes. It does fit.. I used mine on a steel95 its okay..
PHILIP L I use these cam bands on steel 72's, which have a smaller diameter than AL 80's. Not sure what the diameter on AL 63's is, but I think the bands will work on them as there seems to be extra room on the velcro attachment surfaces for overlap. To reiterate, I have not used these on AL 63's, though. Good luck.
BRIAN J I installed them on a Zeagle Ranger and they fit my AL 80s just fine. Also work fine for my steel HP 80 andsteel LP 95.
I've used them on AL80's (as well as steel tanks), and the length is fully adjustable so I see no reason why they wouldn't work on AL63's as well.
Joe M thanks for the reply. Very helpful.
JOHN T I just realized that your question was specifically about the SHORT cam bands; I have the STANDARD cam bands, which is what the subject of the email was. So just for clarity, I have NOT used the short cam bands and can't verify what tanks they'll fit -- although the descriptions says the short length is for 4.0" to 5.0" diameter cylinders, which sounds skinnier than regular tanks.
Sorry for any confusion!
What is the length difference between the large and the small cam bands?
LeisurePro S The short length fits 4.0" to 5.0" diameter cylinders and the large length fits 6.9" to 8.0" diameter cylinders.
What are the dimensions of these cam straps?
Hi! Will this band (small) fit my SeaQuest Libra, to hold my 4 litre 300 bar tank (it is 4.25" in diameter)? /Catrin ps. I?m Swedish, please excuse the spelling...I?m sure it?s incorrect somehow..

Whats in the box:Pair of Cylinder Cam Bands
Tired of having to loosen the cam band each and every time you need to slide it over the top of your cylinder to mount your BCD, or even worse you have already mistakenly mounted your regulator before your BCD. Whichever the problem XS Scuba's unique cam band have a hoop/buckle to allow complete separation of the buckle from the strap webbing allowing you to wrap the band around the cylinder to mount, not having to slide it over the cylinder neck as with standard cam bands.
Buckle is constructed from 316 stainless steel with higher lift on the rolling edge of the buckle to increase cam force; higher lift causes the buckle to snap into place eliminating unintentional release of the band assembly. Cam Band uses standard 2" (5.1 cm) Nylon Webbing and is easy to adjust to different cylinder diameters from 6.9" to 8.0" (17.5 to 20.3).
