The DGX Backplate measures approximately {15.5 in | 39.4 cm} high and {10.5 in | 26.7 cm} wide at the base, {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} aluminum backplate has a durable anodized black finish. Compared to bare uncoated aluminum, the durable anodized aluminum finishes provide greater corrosion resistance and a better consistency in appearance.

Stainless steel backplates are most popular with saltwater divers and divers using aluminum tanks and/or drysuits. The {5 lb | 2.3 kg} stainless steel plates are polished, passivated, and given a matte finish. 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 Dive Rite XT backplate Pad

    Just what is needed

    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!
