Hello, I am traveling to Egypt and want to use my Apeks Flight Reg set. Is this what I need to convert it? is it easy to change back and forth?
It depends on the first stage you have. I know it fits 200 atx as will as xtx. 100 and 50s as will
I used this to convert my ATX50 from yoke to DIN - it is very easy to do. If you keep your yoke, it is easy to convert back. This should work on any Apeks first stage regulator.
Yes, this should work. I have one on my Apeks regulator that I switch out with my yoke fitting, depending on my situation. It is easy to do, just make sure you have the right tools, line up the threads carefully, and do not over tighten the DIN converter into the 1st stage or you could damage your regulator.
I believe all Apeks regs use the same converter to switch from yoke to DIN. It is very easy to switch.
Yes I would think so - if your regs are Apeks. I converted my yoke set up to DIN. All my equipment (tanks and all) are DIN. When I travel I take a yoke adapter to work with most rental tanks. I hope this answered your question
Hi, you don't need this for Egypt - they are well used to US divers who all (or most) have yoke-type regulators. All dive operators and dive boats have "nuts" that they insert into the valve on the tank-head to convert it to a yoke-friendly tank. I've been going to Egypt at least once a year every year for the past 7 years and they ALWAYS have these nuts available. Just show them your reg and they'll know what to do. The converter you are considering, apart from being quite expensive, is not easy to change back and forth - you need specialized tools and you really need to know what you're doing. In essence, you would take off the entire yoke-portion of your first stage and replace it with this DIN converter. I use them to convert yoke-type regs to permanent tech-style DIN regulators. So, bottom line, you don't need it just for a trip to Egypt...
yes its very easy
The DIN is easy to swap back
And forth. JUST keep it tight
The change out is pretty easy. You'll need a large adjustable wrench to remove the yoke attachment. Remove it carefully to ensure o rings stay put. I have the sealed (cold water) first stage, but assume they work the same. Have a great, safe trip.
Yes it is what you want. You can convert it yourself if you have the tools, or have your local shop convert it. Once you use DIN, I think you will always want to use it. As far as converting, no, it's not that simple to convert back, but you can carry an adapter that makes it simple. The adapter is also available here on LP.
