This thing works. The Reg is easy to put in and it comes out with a slight pull. The resistance in my opinion is not enough to pull the mouth piece off (unless its not on properly) like another review states. It does tend to cause the octo to freeflow if you dont let it fill with water before you insert the oct, it will eventually stop but easy just to let some water in. A couple small holes may stop this also. Main point my reg NEVER comes out unless I pull it.

This was the only Octo keeper that would fit my new octo but it annoyingly causes freeflows. I had to fiddle with it at the beginning of each of my 25 dives I made last week. I think I'll be punching some venting holes in it.

    Comments about Aqua Skum-Ball Octopus Holder with Clip:

    I had an issue with my delicate and expensive primary regulator swinging around while i made my way around the deck on my boat dives. It was nice to just tuck it away for a moment while i get my dive camera and lights ready to go. I'm a little picky when it comes to being organized and having a place for everything. It is slightly hard to put the regulator into the holder but at least i know it is secure. (i'm not sure if it's because of the size of my mouthpiece i have a scuba pro a700)

      Bought it in yellow for easy identification. I have always used it with Sherwood octopus in warm water and have no problem taking it out or putting it back in. I have used it in rescue training with no problem at all.

      Could have bigger opening

      Comments about Aqua Skum-Ball Octopus Holder with Clip:

      It serves its function to protect the octo well, but the opening is too small to feel comfortable in emergency. One of my octo regs (Scubapro) slides out Ok, but the other (Aqualung) is too tight and unless carefully removed may pull off the mouth-piece. Emergency and careful removal do not come together very well. Also there is a tendency to free-flow as others have noted. This can be a great product if the opening is made bigger and free-flow issue is solved (a few small holes perhaps).

        Good price of equipment to have. Get the octopus out of the way and you know where it is when you do need it, you don't have to reaching for it.

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          JENNY H  Works great, doesn't let go of my octo
          Fred B  How does this thing work. From the reviews it seems that the reg fits inside it. Is that correct?
          Gordon B  The mouthpiece fits inside with the Skum-Ball clipped to your BC, with a quick tug it comes free. Try it a few times your reg's mouthpiece can fit and pulling it free won't detach the mouthpiece from the regulator.
