    A Simple and DIR Tow Rope.
    By Charles Ayash

    One of the CDS Directors showed me this last year and I feel that these simple pics are pretty much self explanatory.

    1) The Basic tow rope is a braided nylon between 1/8 -3/16 dia with loops at each end.

    Between 5'-7' of total length is all that is needed depending on the divers build.

    2) The rope is fed through the loops to create a cinch.

    3) Cinch loop is passed over the DPV Handles

    4) Cinch is tightened

    Repeat 2,3,4 for each Handle.


    5) Pin each trigger and set prop pitch to lowest setting.

    6) Feed Bolt snap under the Lid handle and clip off to Front D Ring of Crotch Strap.

    7) This is a Burn Tester for more on this please refer to http//:www.wkpp.org

    What was the reason you found for the water in the loop?

    Yeah, then just use a craft knife to cut out sections for the pressure marks. Sounds great ;)

    That is interesting, as I told my buddy I thought I heard y'all abort your dive.

    Orange does not adhere to my OCD-driven quest to have everything on the oxygen side of my rebreather green.
