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. Passivation, which consists of immersing stainless steel components in a special acid solution, will dissolve the imbedded iron and restore the original corrosion-resistant surface by forming a thin, transparent oxide film.

Using the metal grommets......

Attachment hardware Using the metal grommets, either the DR or the DGX sleeve can easily be attached to the bottom or sides of any standard metal backplate using assembly screws or attached to the Transpac using medium quick links or the pear shaped quick links. We find that for this application, the plastic assembly screws work just as well as the metal versions and cost a lot less. You can also use ordinary cable ties, but in our experience cable ties don't hold so you'll need to double up.
