Stainless Steel Bolt Snap
Marine grade stainless steel (SS) bolt snaps are great for divers who want a safe and reliable way to carry quipment and by clipping them off for hands-free streamlined diving. The swivelling D-shaped eye end is great for more permanent attachments, such as regulator second stages, SPGs, and sidemount/stage/deco tanks.
Made of marine grade SAE 316 stainless steel, these bolt snaps greater resistance to pitting corrosion than other grades. Negligibly responsive to magnetic fields, relatively poor conductor of both heat and of electricity when compared to metals.
Good grip even with use with gloves. Smooth spring providing good snapping action.
Available in 90mm / 100mm / 115mm lengths.
Tech Pro Tip: Why bolt snaps and not carabiners? Carabiners open inwards easily, without deliberation, whether there is human interaction or not, and because of the inward motion, it can be hard to remove an object once clipped in. There have been reported cases of entanglements caused by carabiners snapping over loose lines/debris, getting the diver stuck. It has also been known to lead to some divers' deaths in overhead environments, hence the name "suicide clips".
