Webbing a Harness
Stages & Deco
Rigging for singles
Many people ask us how they can rig a single
cylinder configuration. There are two ways, the first is to make a single cylinder harness
, the second is to use a single tank adapter (STA) with your standard twin set backplate.
|The old SeaTek wing was in fact designed for
single cylinder diving, as can be seen in the
photo to the side , the wing has slots in the centre section. These slots allow a
cylinder band to pass through the wing and attach a cylinder (as with a standard stab
jacket) The backplate shown is a plastic backplate as often found in old stab
|| As seen in the diagram on the left, the
backplate is webbed exactly as a stainless back plate would be webbed for a twin set.
The cylinder is fitted with a dual take off H valve as shown in the diagram to the
right. The hose routing is exactly the same as with a twin set. In the diagram
below we see the hoses in "action", the diagram shows a 7 foot long hose being
used without a canister light, the excess hose is simple tucked into the waist belt to
keep it under control.
I have some pictures of a Halcyon Pioneer wing, Single tank
adaptor configuration which I will write up and add to this page
