Over the years, divers have tried countless do-it-yourself methods for keeping stage and deco regulator hoses under control: Rubber band or inner tube sections can be difficult to grip. Rubber surgical tubing oxidizes rapidly and wears out quickly. Shock cord can be difficult to fasten securely. Surgical tubing and shock cord roll along the side of the tank, making them difficult to manage. Dive Gear Express elastic hose retainers offer a superior alternative for keeping hoses under control.

Looping Hoses Under Hose Retainers

A diver who carelessly stuffs the hose (especially a long hose) under a retainer near the base, when clipping the cylinder to their harness is more likely to inadvertently pass the base clip and strap through a loop of the hose. If they later try to deploy the long hose, it's snagged by the base of the strap and clip, and the full length cannot be deployed until the base is unclipped. Using two retainers, or a wide retainer , and positioning the hose retainer high keeps the second stage more tightly tucked up against the valve and very tidy.
