          Comments about Aqua Stainless Steel "Depth Compensating" Weight Belt Buckle:

          I have used one of these buckles for 10-12 years. For me it solved the weight belt around your knees problem, or in my case, weight belt hanging from my crotch strap. The way I use it is to tighten on the boat, then retighten again if needed when I get to the bottom.

          This was a replacement for my original one which was on my brand new weight pocket belt that I left in a Cozumel dive shop two months ago.

          Be aware that this has only two slots for the belt loops, not the customary three.

          Comments about Aqua Stainless Steel "Depth Compensating" Weight Belt Buckle:

          I have had this buckle for more than 10 years. It works just fine. You just snug it up before you go down, and again if necessary on the bottom and it keeps your weight belt tight. I am buying another because, after all this time, I left my belt in Cozumel.

                this buckle keeps your weight belt in place during the dive. no more sliding up and down on your waist. it also grips the webbing very tightly. excellent buckle worth the price.

                Questions about this item:

                Shopper  Is it going to work with drysuite? There is lot more space for compression.
                MICHAEL L  A dry suit is all that I use this buckle on with 30 lbs of weight. If your suit fits you correctly it will work perfectly. There is about 1" of spring in the buckle to compensate for compression. Plenty enough room. It's solid too. I defenitely recommend this buckle. I have lost too many weight pockets and that is a thing in the past now that I have a weight belt. Lose one weight pocket and you can buy 2 of these buckles AND the webbing for the price of replacement of the pocket and weight.
                CHRISTOPHER D  I'm having trouble figuring out have to put the buckle on my weight belt. Can anyone help explain how to put it on a weight belt?
                LIDIA AND SIMON V  This is a great buckle for scuba. It does keep your belt in one place as advertised. It does get squeaky as you breathe, but for the most part you will never even notice it.
                Shopper  What does this do?
                LeisurePro S  What it means by "depth-compensating" is that the buckle is spring loaded to add depth compensation to a weight belt. This eliminates the need for weight belt adjustment while diving due to wetsuit decompression/expansions.
