The Dive Rite Adjustable Bungee System (ABS) allows fast and easy
customization to fit any sidemount diver. The bungee cord is weaved
through a custom designed, laser cut Delrin plate providing an
infinitely adjustable bungee. The bungee will support even the heaviest
of steel tanks without slipping thanks to the unique weaving pattern.
There are no knots to tie and no tools are required--just loosen the
weave at the plate, adjust to the correct length, and re-tighten. Make
quick work of fine tuning your sidemount system and easily adjust for
different sized tanks or varying thicknesses of exposure protection.
They are also ideal for instructors and rental programs that need to
quickly size the bungees for their customers.
The Adjustable Bungee System can also be quickly changed between Dive
Rite’s standard ring bungee system, loop bungees with a snap, or
traditional loop bungees. Simply unweave the bungee, add or remove
hardware as necessary, and re-weave. The bungees can be easily attached
to any of Dive Rite’s sidemount harnesses using the daisy chain webbing
attachment point. Alternatively they can be attached to any small D-ring
or quick link attached to the side of a standard backplate or harness.
The ABS uses high quality, tight weave ¼” bungee for long life and
just the right amount of stretch. If the bungee does get damaged it is
easily replaceable in the field.
The system includes the bungee, weaving plate, and ring bungee
hardware including a 2” stainless steel ring, medium quick link, and
medium bolt snap.
