Could you attach your octo to this, and would it be easy for a buddy to pull out/reach in case of an emergency?
A lot of people I dive with use this for that purpose. Most of them buy the yellow one, but not all. Hope this helps.
Thank You all! I think I will use this to attach my octo, and as a plus it also frees up a D-Ring on the BCD. I just wanted to know that you can pull the reg out fast in case a buddy needs to get to it fast... so thank you!
This necklace is PERFECT for your spare ocopus regulator. That is exactly what my wife and I use it for on every dive. Since it is in the safety triangle your buddy can get to it fast. We also use Doctors earplugs and the necklace is a perfect attachment of the filament holding the earplugs from washing away should they come out of your ears during the dive.
You could certainly use it for the purpose you are asking about. I personaly would not want a stressed diver grabbing for my octo so close to my primary. I attach my primary to it (a zip tie is required to connect the hose to the rubber) so that if it gets ripped from me it only goes a few inches.
Yes yes yes!
A great device. I dive alone,and like to know exactly where my octo is.
It would be very easy for a buddy to find, too.
I'd pay a lot more to get one, if I had to.
(HI, David! writing this from Florence, Italy. Back in Hawaii soon.)
I've been using Manta regulator necklaces for years they work great! The answer to both of your questions is YES.
I believe its mainly for holding your primary regulator near your mouth, but i suppose you could loop it throught a d-ring for your octopus. It does hold a regulator very securely.
Yes, You can attach your octo to this (I bought the yellow one..)...Regulator can be pulled very easily if needed in an emergency situation. I hope this helps....
Yes. It holds your regulator or octo snugly but if your buddy needs it, you can pull it out to share. I have used this for over 2 years and it is great!
