    I like the oeticker clamps because they are very flat. This made hooking up my NERD to the Hollis BOV much simpler and it doesn't move as much. Another positive is that the threaded rings on the hoses can now move so that the oring is exposed so I can more easily verify it is installing in the BOV correctly.

    Hi Bob, yes the clasp part does look flatter and less sharp, good to know, thanks, -Andy

    It is probably blasphemy to say, but there are some that just use zipties. Maybe not in the Hollis world, but certainly in fitting the Hollis BOV to other units, and on some units in general (AP uses zip ties for loop to fitting connections).

    Hi Jim, I'm sure on a DSV or BOV it's not so critical because there's not as much weight hanging, as opposed to the hoses that go from head to CL, which then has the weight of the whole loop hanging on it... -Andy
