OK troops. On the picture above take a wee minute to look at the hose protector. What, actually really quite usefull thing, does this do except "protect your hose?" It's there for all to see. I only learned this the other week.

Answers on a postcard to the usual address please

<font color='#000F22'>isn't it so that if you loose a reg you can place your hand on the 1st stage and any hose with a protector on will lead to a reg as opposed to a contents gauge etc......in scubapro theory anyway.


just a guess and I'm sure some-one far more knowledgeable will come along

Mary - nice idea but doesn't explain why my scubapro console thingy came with a hose protector on it - wouldn't want to try breathing from that!

<font color='#000F22'>see I knew there would be someone more knowledgeable out there


I was just going by my regs but I have a sunnto gauge so hence no protector thingy



Hence........ I my situation my theory above would work  


other than the fact I always have one necklaced anyway....

I've been wondering all these years what that funny little screw thingy that didn't unscrew was for!

<font color='#F52887'>Its for trapping saltwater under, that way the hose connections will corrode and you will have to buy new ones.

Not unless you unscrew it by the thing that doesn't unscrew and pull it back and rinse underneath...as your mum taught you when you were little..

It does actually stop grating of the hose against the metal...just stops waggling fraying movements. I've seen a hose get sliced, well, slit on a crowded dive boat...simply because there was no hose protector bit...as far as I can see there's no harm in having them but good protection for a vulnerable area.

I hope this post wasn't a piss take...

<font color='#0000FF'>slide it up to the top of the hose and put a cable tie on, the hose, that will stop it moving.

Darth,

My wife has just read your signature and concludes that that's the funniest she's seen on YD.

I'm not so sure myself but thought I'd let you know.

Right I'll explain very slowly for you all as most of you seemed to have missed it. That little "screwy thing that doesn't unscrew" is for holding a spare O-ring in. That's all it does, no more, no less. Capiche!!!
