I'm confused on what you mean - you don't have to tighten it - and that's a problem??

I meant that after 20 or so dives you have to un thread the whole thing and take more slack out of the strap. The webbing stretches and after a while it doesnt matter how tight you close the clamp, it wont get tight enough.

Oh... Ok.. I got it. I've never really run into that. To tighten it up just a little bit is pretty quick... you shouldn't have to unthread the whole thing, just pull a little more webbing through one side.

That is one thing about the bio lock is going from one size tank to another takes about a minute to readjust - say from an al 80 to an al 100, but they have just started shipping a new version that will allow for easy tightening without having to even take it off the tank.

Now the webbing comes out on top with a new designed threading system:

Thanks for the review. I might be looking into one of those, just adding it to the wish list.

I just got a pair of these, I wish I knew the new version was coming out :-). Basically they are great, except for the resizing everyone is talking about. As simple as can be to install on your BC. THe one thing to watch out for is most dive ops don't know how to use them, so you have to kinda watch over the guy attaching your tank, which I do anyway...

Bought one for myself and my husband. I have limited grip strength and always had to ask someone else to tighten my strap cause the strap just slipped through my fingers. Not any more! I love my tank lock, even with the resizing issues. I do have to show the dive ops how to adjust - they're always keen to learn so I like to think I'm paving the way for future tank lock users.
