      Great backplate for lower baggage weight when traveling by air. Keeps your doubles very stable, even with stage and/or deco bottles. No problem with sharp edges. Accommodates various harnesses. Can't beat the price.

      Comments about OMS 2 lb. Aluminum BackPlate Only (BP-020):

      From OMS I expected the tank mounting holes to be properly machined to enable correct tank mounting. I had to ream out the mounting holes to enable the tank mounting bolts to correctly slide through the holes. This removes the external protective coating which may have a detrimental effect in the lont term especially when used extensively in salt water.
      I have a steal OMS back plate but was trying to shed some weight especially when I used my steel doubles and was hoping to see the same quality I got in my steel back plate with the Al. one.
      Overall it worked fine and for the money was a good buy but my concern is how well it will last in salt water after reaming the holes as required to accomidate the tank mount bolts.

        Comments about OMS 2 lb. Aluminum BackPlate Only (BP-020):

        This back plate is great for a light weight travel setup or as a permanent harness for a twin tank setup, especially for steel tanks, where the extra weight of an SS back plate is usually not needed.
        The only negative feedback I have, are poorly manufactured slots for webbing. Some edges are razor blade sharp but it can be easily fixed with a file. On the other hand I like the large number of holes that allow for unlimited attachment points.

          Comments about OMS 2 lb. Aluminum BackPlate Only (BP-020):

          Diving without a backplate is just uncomfortable now, but dragging heavy gear to warm water locations is annoying (and expensive with airline weight restrictions). This backplate is exactly what I was looking for - lightweight, sturdy and all the slots required to make me comfortable down south[...]

          Comments about OMS 2 lb. Aluminum BackPlate Only (BP-020):

          Usefull for shedding some weight when you find yourself negatively buoyant diving without a weight belt. My choice of backplate for those short duration tech dives when I still need to carry a couple of side slungs, but only in warm waters.
          Will not stand up to rugged use like their stainless steel plate will.
          Also, the finishing of the holes and slots is very poor and will shorten the life of the harness webbing because some of them are quite sharp (but the finishing is due to the manufacture process).

          Shopper  Hi, I'm looking to purchase an aluminum backplate (warm water diving and lots of travel). However, I'm very concerned about reviewers commenting that this plate is poorly manufactured. More specifically "the finishing of the holes and slots is very poor and will shorten the life of the harness webbing because some of them are quite sharp". Does anyone know if OMS has addressed this issue? If not, would you recommend another brand? Thanks!
          PETER B  Hi, the back plate was for my father and he is diving all around a world, never told me, that is somethink wrong with the plate. 15 of his diving boddys has the same think.
