With just 2 simple clicks, Spare Air can be mounted to your BC and you're ready to go diving!
Using the Covered Holster included in the Spare Air 170 and 300 package, mounting is quick and easy, and keeps Spare Air close at hand - yet you don't even know you're wearing it. Practice pulling the Spare Air out of the holster when diving in a non-emergency situation.
Depending on your equipment and the way it is set-up, you can mount Spare Air anywhere that is most convenient for you such as:
Shoulder Mount: Attach top holster strap to shoulder strap and bottom holster strap to D-ring.
D-ring Mount: Attach bottom holster strap to tank strap and top holster strap to D-ring.
Tank Mount: Thread tank strap through holster mounting strap sewn to back of holster (some stitching may need to be carefully removed to accommodate broader tank straps). Holster straps are not used.
Extra Weight Belt Mount: Ever wondered what to do with that old weight belt you no longer use. Attach holster straps to a weight belt not being used for buoyancy adjustment.
The new Spare Air 600 Holster is made with a Velcro adjustable strap and two clips that easily connect your Spare Air to any BC strap and D-Rings.
Shoulder D-ring Mount: Attach top holster clip to shoulder strap and bottom holster clip to D-ring.
Cummerbund Mount: Slip the Velcro holster strap through the cummerbund on BC between shoulder strap and bladder.
D-Ring Mount: Use clips to attach to any two extra D-Rings on BC
Mounting the Spare Air 600 upside-down on the tank is not recommended. The unit is difficult to deploy from this position and, over time, gravity may force the Spare Air tank to loosen the drawstring allowing the unit to fall out.
