  • Customize your mask with your name or message
  • Proven to be much more reliable than silicone straps
  • Distributes pressure evenly for a better mask seal
  • Unbeatable comfort and eliminates pulled hair

The Slap StrapĀ® neoprene mask strap easily adjusts for unbeatable comfort, eliminates pulled hair, and distributes pressure more evenly allowing for a better mask seal. The one-size-fits-all Slap Strap replaces the existing strap on most brands of dive mask, including all masks sold by Dive Gear Express.

All black masks tend to look alike but you can have your black mask strap embroidered with Red, White, Pink, Orange, Green, Blue, Gold, Black (yes, Black!), and then select a font. In the photographs above, the 'Newbie' example is Serif font, the 'Emily' example is Script font, and the 'Mark or Ian' example is Sans-Serif font. Serif and Sans-Serif may be any mixture of upper and lower case. For Script, only the first letter of each word should be upper case. Select the thread color and font in the drop down menus and then enter your message of 10 characters or less. We'll take care of the rest, and you'll have your personalized Slap Strap in a few days!

Many experienced divers prefer the durable neoprene Slap Strap because it has proven to be much more reliable than silicone straps. The strap offered by Dive Gear Express is the high-quality original Slap Strap and is black on the outside, and now with an all black plush backing and no-fray Velcro® attachment. Ours is also notable because it's the uncommon plain all black version, with no marketing message or logo imprint. Velcro portion of the strap is slightly less than { 7/8 in | 2.2 cm } wide.

    As the coordinator for an aquarium, we thought it would be a neat idea to get a batch of custom mask straps for our team. The order and turn around for delivery was within a week, and we had over 25 different names done up. Thank you for providing a great product and very quick delivery. Will definitely order from DGE again!

Leaking Mask? Loosen The Strap!

If your mask is leaking, try loosening the strap, not tightening it. All mask straps, regardless of the type, are there just to keep the mask from falling off your face, not to make the seal. The thin feather edge of the silicone mask skirt is what makes the watertight seal with the face. If the strap is too tight, the skirt and that feather seal will become warped and misshapen which can cause the mask to leak. If the mask is leaking slightly, tightening the strap even more will usually make the leak worse. With a properly set strap, some types of water entries might dislodge the strap, so make a habit of reaching back behind your head with one hand to steady the strap (not the mask) during entry. Any diver who exits and has a 'mask ring' indentation in their face probably has too tight a mask strap.

A nice feature of the Slap Strap is the Velco tabs make it easy to change the strap length and you can even do it during the dive by feel. If your mask is leaking, you can try loosening the strap during the dive to see if it solves the problem. Of course you can also tighten it during the dive. Sometimes on deep dives the water is very cold on the bottom and requires a hood, yet the water is very warm near the surface which can cause uncomfortable overheating on the shallow deco stops. Some technical divers like to wear a hood during the cold part of the dive, then during their warmer long deco stops they pull the hood off and tighten the mask strap to compensate.
