    I?ve been enjoying diving my Sidewinder but I?ve noticed that it is a PITA to put on.

    I?ve tried a new method today and was really pleased with the outcome and the ease to don the gear.

    I used some hook& loop and some other misc hardware. I removed the bolt snap and rope before entering the water. I left the hook & loop in place.

    So I?ve been keeping the unit on a table or on the bed of my pickup, I hold the loop in my hands as I lift it up and once above my head it falls right on me, usually correctly every time.
    The loop is not behind me, and then I can rest it back on the table.
    Seems to work, ok for me....

    but I do like the idea shown here!

    The table method never worked for me. So I quit diving the unit unless I had a buddy.

    MOD 1.2

    I took a 1? d ring and using a bandsaw cut a 3/16? opening in the flat part of the d ring.

    Worked it onto the webbing of the SMS 75 and secured it in place with an AP Diving BK-31 Verti-Clip.
