    I recently acquired a metric Apeks SPG- the gauge only, no console. I believe this is part # AP5709, but not completely certain. I would like to find a 1 or 2 gauge compatible boot/console (my existing console does not fit). What are the gauge's dimensions, and are there recommended consoles to match?
    Best,
    Amw 5G

    that SPG is not designed to go in a console. It is designed to be tied to a bolt snap and clipped directly to your harness.

    do that, but tie it around the hose or neck of the spg instead of the end of the light

    I do still use a console on occasion though.... They do have their purposes and if routed correctly are very streamlined :-D I use them on recreational dives in the caribbean, have a Suunto 2 gauge console that I clip to my right chest D-ring. Saves me having to worry about having a computer that's worth as much as the rest of my regulator set get stolen. That said, that only comes out for a handful of dives a year, and if I'm diving backmount 98% of the time, my SPG looks like that picture

    Interesting... This manual http://scubaspares.com/manuals/AP5929.pdf suggests otherwise, including 4 different Apeks consoles.
    Perhaps I can rig something up instead. I don't trust that I will keep it safe and secure without some sort of additional protection. Thanks for the info.

    You are unable to measure?

    I have a desktop ruler and a retractable metal measuring tape. I had hoped for something more precise, especially with regards to the thickness.

    if there's an Apeks console for it then you're likely going to have to get an Apeks console, I've never seen anything for it. That said, there are hundreds of thousands of dives on bare spg's with no problems reported
