I was reading the reviews from other that bought this that this product does not come special nuts and bolts to attach it to b.c. is this the case and if so do you have these attachments?
The plastic hardware was included with mine. Attach them to the existing grommets on the BC.
When I received my Zeagle Split Saddle Strap Assembly for my Ranger BCD it did in fact come with the special nuts and bolts to attachement to my BCD. The split saddle strap was easy to install and really holds the BCD in place with confort. This item should be a standard piece of equipment for this BCD.
I own a 2009 Zeagle Ranger LTD. No additional parts were necessary to install this product on my BC.
It does not come with any nuts and bolts. The Rig attaches to clips at th e bottom of BC.
The saddle strap assembly uses the 1" plastic tri-bar at the bottom of the vest, on the back. You also have to use two of the accessory holes on the front to attach the clips. I don't recall if they were included with the strap (probably not), but if you are attaching any accessory to the Ranger BC, you need the 2-piece plastic screws to attach them. I don't believe that Leisure Pro stocks them, but any dive shop that sells and/or services Zeagle BCDs should have them. I've seen them online for $2-$5 USD each.
I bought the saddle strap because I found that the BCD rode up on my back when I was floating in the water immediately before or after a dive. The strap helps keep the BCD in place.
It comes ready to attach to this BC. No bolt's, nut's, washer's or tool's needed.
U&ses stainles carriage bolts. Rinded tops prevent it from sticking you in the back. measure th right sizre depnding on the tank used. I used the zeagle pony straps betwwen the tanks in the back with a little longer bolt giving me a 40 cft pony with my twin tanks. Heavy but what a great bottom time with nitrox pony.
Easy assembly and a very helpful item. Snap closures. Very easy!!!!
it should come with the plastic nuts and bolts to attach it to the BC. However they come lose easily and are lost OFTEN. Therefore get extras!
I do not recall if the strap or the BC already have the needed hardware attached. I did not have to add any extra hardware with mine. The only bolts required are referred o as "sex bolts" they are male and female that screw into each other. They are often mistaken for rivets as your usually see no threads. The previous posted might not have realized it.
This thing is great for this bc!! it's simple to hook up turn key if you will. comes with everything you will need. i use it and recommend it! hope that helps
I bought this in 2006 - 2007 and a Zeagle Ranger BC.
No special hardware was needed to attach the strap assembly.
They may have changed the design since 2007.
If I recall correctly, you should already have the assembly bolts that you need - they're holding on the cummerbund. You just open those, add the front pieces of the saddle strap, and close everything up again and you're all set.
