The Vindicator Handwheel for scuba valves is a safety device that can help divers avoid inadvertently starting a dive with a cylinder valve in the wrong position.
Important: You must order the specific model to fit the brand of the valve. There are different models of the Vindicator Knob, each to fit one or more specific brands of scuba valve. Dive Gear Express stocks the two most popular models #2, and #3 that fit the brands of the valves we sell. The #2 fits Thermo and Sherwood; the #3 fits Dive Rite and Scuba Pro as well as the DGX Premium valve. NOTE FOR BLUE STEEL and HOLLIS VALVES: You may choose any # knob but you must also select the #1 Insert from the drop down menu to make that knob compatible for the Hollis brand, or the #6 Insert from the drop down menu to make that knob compatible for the Blue Steel brand.

Vindicator Valve Knobs

Valve Color Options
Green Indicates Gas On, Red Indicated Gas Off Valve Color Options Vindicator Knob Replacement
  • Clearly and quickly shows if valve is ON or OFF
  • Color coded multi-layer design for safety
  • Oversized for easy grip even with gloves
  • Available in three colors to denote gas mixes

The handwheel indicates at a glance if the valve is open, closed or in between. The Vindicator is an easy way to reassure yourself and show fellow divers the status of your cylinder valve. Dive boat operators and instructors like them because they can see the client tank valve is fully OPEN at a glance. This knob is also oversized, making it popular as a retrofit for valves that are difficult to reach or for use with gloves. In particular we like the idea of using the Vindicator on the crossbar, because isolator valves are notorious for being closed and not getting checked as part of predive preparations and fill operations. Available in four colors: Black, Green (often used to denote Oxygen and very rich Nitrox deco mixes), Green with Yellow band (often used to denote sport Nitrox) and Beige (often used to denote Trimix). NOTE FOR BLUE STEEL or HOLLIS VALVES: You may choose any # knob but you must also select the #1 Insert from the drop down menu to make that knob compatible for the Hollis brand, or the #6 Insert from the drop down menu to make that knob compatible for the Blue Steel brand.

It's easy to install the Vindicator yourself or you can order all the valves sold by Dive Gear Express with the Vindicator already installed. Watch the one minute Product Video above demonstrating installation of the Vindicator on a tank valve.
