About OMS Spring Heel Strap Set for Slipstream Fins

One size does not fit all. Did you know that one size fits all spring heel straps may cause excessive coil expansion when used on a larger boot and extreme discomfort to your heel? This excessive coil expansion can facilitate line entanglement in between the expanded coils! OMS Spring Heel Straps come in multiple sizes to insure proper fit and help eliminate excessive coil expansion and entanglements! The springs expand and contract to automatically adjust and compensate for expansion and compression of the divers boot. The thick 4.5" (11.4cm) Achilles rubber pad provides unprecedented comfort in the heel area prevents heel discomfort and aids in donning and doffing of the fin. The OMS Spring Heel FS Fin Strap series is designed to fit OMS Slipstream and most fins with a standard "Wire" point of attachment. Straps are covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

I don't have to worry about a rubber fin strap or buckle failing during a dive.

Not the best!

EZ Spring Grip-Tight Fin Straps are much better. I've used both.

Comments about OMS Spring Heel Strap Set for Slipstream Fins:

This is a very good spring strap. It has a cable that prevents you from losing it entirely if the spring should break. The one downside in my opinion, and the reason for the 4 stars, is that the rubber gripper on the back is so huge. It made getting the strap on and off my Jet Fins virtually impossible.

I just cut the rubber gripper and they work great. Very easy to don/doff now.

        Comments about OMS Spring Heel Strap Set for Slipstream Fins:

        These spring straps are very well made with a safety wire threaded through the spring in case of spring failure. They are the perfect addition to the OMS Slipstream fins. You may have to experiment with sizes depending on boot type. I purchased a large set to go with my XL fins per LeisurePro's recomendation and they were way to tight with my size 11 hard soled boots. I ended up getting a 2XL set and they work perfectly.

        Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

        Questions about this item:

        MICHAEL M  I heard a size 8-9 boot. (Size 8 for wetsuit/9 for drysuit boots) Will Large spring straps work?
        JAMES G  I'm not familiar with dry suit boot sizing, but for regular dive boots the large springs would be too much. I wear a 10-11 dive boot, and I use large springs.
        MICHAEL M  Thanks.
        Shopper  I own a pair of these in size XL, and wear XL Scubapro delta boots, my feet are size 11, what size OMS spring straps should I buy? Large? Thanks
        ROBERT E  I have a pair in Large and they work perfect with my 5mil Henderson hard sole boots. I'm not familiar with the soles on your boots but if they are hard soles, Large spring straps should be what you need. BTW, these are great straps.
        Shopper  What is the proper way to measure the spring size needed ?
        LeisurePro S  They correlate to fin sizes.
