If you have a hose mount instrument and no longer wish to have it dangling from the hose exposed to knocks and dings and would prefer to have it "closer to the vest" then you need a Hose Mount Retractor. Retractor allows you to place any hose mount instrument in a convenient location on your BCD. Simply install your computer, compass or depth gauge on the retractor bracket and you're set. Retractor is equipped with two choices of mounting clips that easily attach to your BCD.
You can choose from a plastic snap clip or stainless key ring. Both come complete with quick disconnect fitting allowing you to remove retractor and instrument from BCD after the dive for safe storage. When you need to take a read from your instrument simply pull the self-retracting cable to desired length and when finished it will automatically retract the cable for you.
