    If your having problems setting cylinder valve in a convenient place .

    IV never had a first stage problem on suit feed.
    Had the inflate side jam open
    Quick disconnect and whack it on a side can sorted it .
    Id always pop the feed of first over turning cylinder off .
    That would be my 2nd move.

    If that good whack didn't sort the problem. And if your using a dedicated small cylinder id not be to arsed about losing said gas . Plus I have other fittings I can use to feed suit if main go s tits up.
    Could you expand on the jubilee clip?

    Re: suit gas

    I did go searching images at first. Surprising the lack of what is out there. Saw a couple different setups (left side and on top). Nothing in real detail, just happens to be there in a few pictures. That is when I figured it was time to ask instead of guess.


    I have been warned about He in the suit. I do plan to try it, under controlled conditions, just to see what it does. As for O2 in the suit, can you guarantee the synthetics in the suit will have no static build up? There is probably enough humidity in there, but are you really sure?

    Not really sure that eating Tex-Mex, hardboiled eggs n baked beans is a good idea when you are using O2 as a suit gas - but in almost 30 years of diving dry I've never heard of an incident of a diver stepping out of the water wearing a shredded drysuit.

    Re: suit gas

    I used to have the suit gas bottle attached to the back plate on my left side, easy access to the valve an all that but it still put a pressure on my back and annoyed me.
    When traveling i always use the BO air or EAN50 bottle for suit inflation (in order not to have to use the limited luggage allowance in airlines to this bottle) so why not only use that one when home as well......
    So this i have done. Got rid of the suit gas bottle and only uses the BO bottle containing air or EAN50.
    Will not use 100% O2 due to the possible impact to the different equipment. Or the He mix. Others have already done this experiment and i do believe them when they tell what a chilling discomfort that experience was
