Dive Rite Regulator Necklace
- Perfectly designed to fit around a diver's neck
- Secures your auxiliary air source (octo)
- Adjustable opening for snug fit on regulator
The opening of the necklace is simply pushed over the second stage regulator mouthpiece, and even over the cable-tie used to hold the mouthpiece in place. When using the Dive Rite necklace, simply squeeze the ends of the opening together to fit tightly around the mouthpiece.

on 5 November, 2018Lasts longer than the old surgical tubing we used to use- we have them on all our "octopus" regulators...it's right there to grab with your mouth if you lose your primary reg, or someone takes that reg out of your mouth in an emergency situation. Not just for tech divers, but useful for handicapped divers, too. Product was processed and came very quickly.

on 4 March, 2017Best dive computer ever! All instructors at my dive shop use this computer - and for a reason! So easy to use. Very useful for tech and recreation modes. I especially appreciate the ability to choose between different algorithms. Extremely happy with this purchase!

The regulator necklace is an increasingly popular method to manage your alternate air source. The necklace concept derives from technical divers that had a need to keep their back-up regulator close to their mouth for instant availability. If you wish, you can make your own regulator necklace instead of buying one. Tie a knot in each end of the desired length of 1/8 in diameter bungee cord, then burn the ends of the cord to keep them from unraveling. Cut and remove the cable-tie holding your second stage mouthpiece (take care not to cut your mouthpiece), lay the ends of the bungee cord along both sides of the mouthpiece and then secure with a replacement cable-tie and trim.
When donning your gear, the necklace holding the backup regulator is placed over your head first, allowing the second stage to hang securely under your chin. Then put the primary regulator in your mouth. It may take one or two dives to get comfortable with the new regulator position, after that you won't even be aware it's there unless you need it.
