About Zeagle Surface Marker Buoy QD Deluxe Signal Tubes

The Quick Deploy (QD) Deluxe Signal System is a Compact-Way to Effectively-Store-and-Deploy a Signal Tube and a Thumb Reel. The System includes the Signal Tube, the Reel with Line, Double Ended Brass Snap and an E-Z Mount or Zipper Pouch. The Quick Deploy Deluxe Signal System is Completely-Enclosed in the Pouch when not in use. To Deploy, the Diver Grasps the Deploy Strap and Pulls-the-Reel and the Signal Tube Out-of-the-Pouch. The Diver Inflates the Signal Tube with his Octopus 2nd Stage by Purging-Air out of the Regulators Mouthpiece into the Large One-Way Valve on the bottom of the tube (if available) or by Orally Inflating with the Signal Tubes Oral Inflator Valve. The diver can then drop the reel which unwinds and let the tube ascend to the surface. The diver encircles the line loosely with the thumb and fingers and ascends to the desired depth.

There are 4-Models to choose from, 2-Models with EZ-Mount Zip-On Pouch and 2-Models with EZ-Mount Grommet Pouch, either can be purchased with a Plastic of Stainless Steel Reel. Models with the Lightweight Plastic 3.25" (8.3cm) Reel provide 115' (35 meters) of Nylon Line. The Models with the Stainless Steel 3" (7.6cm) Reel provide 65' (20 meters) of Nylon Line. All QD Deluxe Signal Systems come with Zeagle's Deluxe Signal Tube. This Surface Signaling Device offers a Brightly Colored Highly Visible Profile in the Water when needed. The Tube measures (W x H) 7" x 60" (17.8cm x 152.4cm) and can provide Up to 22lbs (10kg) of Lift.

      The QD pocket tucks right under the wing so there is no dangling. The signal tube is as easy to deploy as reaching for a dump valve

        Comments about Zeagle Surface Marker Buoy QD Deluxe Signal Tubes:

        This is a quality DSMB! When mounted, you can't even tell that it's there. It's totally out of the way, but still easily accessible.

        I ordered the Quick Link version, because I don't have a zipper mounts on my Stiletto, and didn't want to purchase them separately.

        NOTE that the Quick Link version DOES NOT come with any form of BC attachment or mounting hardware. It has grommets for attachment points, but it doesn't natively mount to a Zeagle BC with what's included.

        While the Zeagle instructional video does mention that you can use a zip-tie to attach it, I'd recommend the Zeagle Quick Link With Strap. It's about $, but it's incredibly simple to use, and you will know that its a "supported modification" designed for the function.

        If you have a Stiletto or Ranger, you only only need one strap. It only requires one attachment point at the top, as the lower bladder strap on these BCs can be disconnected by a release, and is intended to retain the bottom part of the DSMB. This means that the DSMB is very easily removable - probably as much as or moreso than zipper mount.

        My wife has a Xena, and it would probably require two Quick Link straps, as it does not have a lower bladder strap release.

        If you aren't rigged for zipper mount already, you will be more than happy with ease of removal of the Quick Link version.

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          MARTIN C  Best price.Quality.These are great!Nice and compact.Fast easy to deploy!
          Shopper  What is the total length of the entire unit. Do you have any pictures of this unit rear mounted to a ranger BC?
          CHRIS G  I can't find a picture of it on a Ranger. I have it installed on a Stiletto, but the installation is basically the same for the Ranger. I'd recommend getting the Quick Link as well for a seamless installation (http://www.leisurepro.com/p-zglql/zeagle-quick-link-with-strap). Basically the strap on the Quick Link goes around your upper tank strap. The quick link then hooks around the upper grommet on the top of the signal tube sleeve. The bottom of the signal tube sleeve doesn't connect to anything, but the entire sleeve and contents is held into place between bladder and the backplate using the bladder retaining strap(s). You can barely see the sleeve at all when wearing the BC and you can't feel it. You can keep the reel inside of the sleeve to keep everything out of the way, or you can pull the reel out and clip it to an accessible portion of your BC. It's very much out of the way, but also stays put in one place, so you know where it is. There's an installation video on the Zeagle site for the Quick Link which shows how the sleeve and tube integrate to the BC (LP doesn't allow me to link the video, but just search for "Quick Link" on the Zeagle site) Hope this helps.
          Ben H  Will the E-Z Mount Zip-on Pouch fit straight to my Stiletto BCD?
          SAMUEL C  To fit the pouch to your Stuletto BC you need to purchase the corresponding zipper add-on attachments from Zeagle. These zip attachments are relatively inexpensive and can be added directly to the Stiletto under the back pad. After the attachments are in place you can zip the pouch directly to the side of the BC where it will sit discretely under the side bladder clip. I have the Stiletto BC for travel and have used this system for two plus years. It is very reliable and streamlined. I highly recommend it. I often have to deploy my SMB during drift dives and this set up works very well for that. My experience level: OWSI. Number of dives: 600+.
