S/S and Aluminum Backplate Options
S/S and Aluminum Backplate Options

  • The depth of the "V" is { 1.25 in | 3.2 cm } for a flatter fit against the back
  • Slots to accept tank cam bands for single cylinder diving - no adapter required
  • Has universal { 11 in | 27.9 cm } centers for use with all brand aircells (wings)
  • Rounded corners and all edges are de-burred and smooth

The DGX Backplate measures approximately { 15.5 in | 39.4 cm } high and { 10.5 in | 26.7 cm } wide at the base, and { 9 in | 22.9 cm } wide at the top before the corner curve. The depth of the "V" is { 1.25 in | 3.2 cm }, allowing for a flatter fit against the back than other popular models. For comfort it is compatible with Dive Rite XT Backplate Pad.

Aluminum backplates are the most popular with freshwater divers and divers using steel tanks. The { 2 lb | 0.9 kg } DGX Aluminum Backplate has a durable anodized black finish. Compared to bare uncoated aluminum, durable anodized aluminum finishes provide greater corrosion resistance and a better consistency in appearance.

Stainless steel backplates (SAE 304) are most popular with saltwater divers and divers using aluminum tanks and/or drysuits. The { 5 lb | 2.3 kg } DGX Stainless Steel Backplate is polished and passivated. Passivation treatments improve the surface condition of stainless steel by dissolving iron that has been imbedded in the surface during forming, machining or polishing.

Both plates are of modern laser cut design offering the same basic features:

  • Mounting hole and slot that allows easy assembly on { 11 in | 27.9 cm } centers doubles bolts without alignment concerns.
  • Slots to accept directly threaded tank cam bands for single cylinder diving, making the use of a single tank adapter optional.
  • Horizontal and angled strap slots to allow your choice of straight or cross-over shoulder strap mounting.
  • Both { 1 in | 2.5 cm } and { 2 in | 5.1 cm } slots to accommodate your choice of crotch strap.
  • { 3/8 in | 1 cm } holes along the sides for mounting accessories such as light canisters, inflation bottles and lumbar pads.
  • Rounded corners and all edges are de-burred to reduce wear on the harness and wing.
  • Compatible with the Dive Rite XT Backplate Pad

    This is my first purchase of a BP/W and the team at DGX was extremely helpful in getting me into the right equipment. Looking forward to my first dive with the new rig this weekend.

    Simple product, made well, very smoothly finished - no sharp edges anywhere.

  4. Just what is needed

    By McCamy I.

    on 12 October, 2018

    This dive plate is a very nicely finished aluminum back plate, I am using an Apeks WTX 30 wing and the holes line up fine for the single tank cam straps and top hole and bottom one if you want to add bolts to hold the wing to the plate, otherwise just the cam straps do the job fine. Great product at a great price!
