    DIY quick fix for Nerd ver.1.

    I think I want to love my NERD as I am a huge fan of all things Shearwater...but the goofy strap attachment fights me every...single...time I get in the water. Yesterday it was enough to make me almost want to pitch it and go back to a DREAM (yes I was that frustrated!). It is the strap that continually loosens and comes undone on me. I have looked all over the net from folks doing 3D printing of a new mount to even considering buying the Ver.2 clip to use on my Ver.1 unit as a solution to a continual problem.

    It was then that I took a short piece of bungee, took off that damn strap, tied a Davys knot (why not?) around the metal hooks and voila, a DIY fix that actually worked and fit my standard REVO DSV...By replacing the strap, I have the stretch to attach the hook then when closed it provides enough tension to stay closed...and it fits the groove between my mouthpiece and the adjustable hose clamp.

    Thought I would post it here for others equally frustrated looking for a solution...I feel so much better now about the NERD.

    What 's wrong with the revo clip to attach the nerd if you dive with the dsv ?

    With a BOv I use the tecme attachment.

    I have a standard DSV and not a BOV...and being at the dive site and needed a quick solution. Next step is to mod a clip to Revo clip, but now its not as urgent as it was.

    Thanks EngelenD,
    Are you referring to the standard clip off the DREAM hud?

    Thank you EngelenD, I appreciate the time you took for the pic. That is exactly what I was looking for and was about to begin fabricating one. Did you make that or did you find it for sale?

    Can I ask is the NERD acting as the controller or just as a replacement for the Dream?

    EngelenD,
    Thanks...I had previously checked the website and didn't see it there...it is now. I appreciate the heads up and I'm placing my order now.

    Cb1,
    I'm using my NERD as primary and Petrel as secondary...pulled DREAM off and its sitting in the corner collecting dust.
    Don
