Used for fastening a harness and backplate securely to a diver's body, the crotch strap keeps the harness in place.

Dive Rite Crotch Straps - Used for fastening a harness and backplate securely to a diver's body, one end of the strap is threaded onto the backplate and the other end with a loop is placed on the waist belt webbing. The crotch straps keep the harness in place during water entry. By using a crotch strap, divers can prevent their gear slipping upwards on the body in the water, reducing the likelihood of the tank touching the back of the head during a dive. Crotch Straps include a stainless steel scooter ring for use with diver propulsion vehicles (DPVs). The ring is also a convenient place to temporarily clip off an item to free your hands, such as a lobster snare or camera.

The crotch strap is available in continuous and slide release designs with a choice of {1 in | 2.5 cm}, {1.5 in | 3.8 cm} and {2 in | 5.1 cm} widths. The slide release buckle offers the convenience of an adjustable length at the quick release buckle and allows the loop to be placed on waist belt webbing behind the buckle where it can remain. The continuous webbing crotch strap with sewn loop is preferred by technical divers who use DPVs for extended periods of time due to the added distribution of weight the width provides and the {2 in | 5.1 cm} version includes a neoprene sleeve to protect an exposure suit from abrasion.

    Just as advertised the DiveRite crotch strap works wonders for keeping your rig in place. It is simple, without any extra snaps/buckles etc.

  4. The only crotch strap that I will use

    Strap is stiff to the point that it lasts a long time... the neoprene cover smooths out the rest...

  5. Incredible value

    This is a killer light for the price, small enough for your BC pocket yet very bright. Only improvement I can think of would be a way to focus the beam.
