Can this fit on backplates from other manufacturers - say, halcyon and diverite? Thanks in advance.
Yes, even if you have to drill one more hole it will do a great job.
Keeps the tank snug in place.
Yes, the unit works great with my Zeagle SS backplate. The mounting holes are standard distance and should work with any brand. The only draw back is that it does not provide as much clearance between the bladder and the first stage (then again I am diving the new Zeagle 65lb 360). Smaller bladders or wings should not have this issue. If you are looking at weight, Oxycheq has a travel adaptor, otherwise stick to the SS tank adapter esp. if it's an aluminum backplate and your trying to add weight. Hope this Helps!
I have this on my OMS backplate, but I can't see any reason why it wouldn't fit on any standard backplate from Halcyon or Dive Rite. It attaches via long bookscrews to the center slots on the backplate. The tank bands are fed through the existing tank band slots on the backplate. As long as you have center slots and tank band slots it will attach just fine.
I use this adapter with an OMS backplate however the distance between the mounting holes on the adapter is 11" so as long as the backplate you're using has an 11" spacing between the mounting holes I'd go ahead and order.
Yes, it should fit another backplate. While the designs can be slightly different the function of the backplate is still the same. Therefore there will always be holes for screws and slots for adaptor and cam bands. I bought the OMS backplate and Adaptor to have continuity and have been satisfied everyday since the purchase.
I don't know.....sorry
I have mine mounted to an OMS backplate and harness.
Good Luck !!
