    It would make picking up the tanks a PIA, but that would be a potential choice for a low profile sidemount valve.

    I'm curious if you find a source.

    Thanks to everybody for the info. I have decided to go a different route due to the difficulty in getting these valves.

    Hi,
    you can get them in Germany, but with the shipping costs they can get very expensive !

    I have received my order from BTS and am now the proud owner of a few of these valves. I currently have 4 more than I need and am willing to sell them to interested parties. $75 each + shipping.

    Looking for a different kind of tank valve

    I could see them maybe being useful for deinverting onboard cylinders, but I'm struggling to see any other advantage.

    I have heard of several examples for their use.

    1 - sidemount diver wants them to streamline his configuration
    2 - drysuit tank for the same reason, I might even try this on my rEvo
    3 - Look at the SF2 and their use in that rig
    4 - my super secret, classified, ninja approved experiment

    I just figured that since I was going to the hassle of importing for my own needs that I would get a couple of extras for anyone that might have an interest.
