    I don't think Bryan will care since he has not sold this in a long time, but you actually need to ask him.

    I just gave him all the rights to make them. I really appreciate for you asking before making any more that one for your own personal use. But again, I just gave this for Bryan to use.

    This is something that anyone could have easily "reversed engineer" so it is just very ethical for you to ask. It is also so simple, that I hate to even call it "engineered". There was no real engineering in its design.

    Thanks

    I'll ask Bryan then.... I'm just lazy enough to use your measurements instead of taking my own!

    Yes, that is why I am sure Bryan will not mind, but it is a very nice courtesy. And now-a-days, others might have used these dimensions knowing that no one would have known the difference... It is now on the internet, so it is public knowledge.

    It is not really a big deal, but I really appreciate you asking.

    Thanks again

    Go to Walmart or the dollar store and get a pair of those super cheap flip flops. Cut out a shape that fits snug then put a small carabiner or clip through the end to stow it on a d-ring. $2-3 total and works great.

    At Walmart they have cheap yoga foam blocks. I discovered these as a result of a thread here on SB. Where have these been all my life! A nice, stiff foam, in colors and it carves and saws!.

    Most folks hang out at dive shops looking for dive gear. I hang out at hardware stores looking for stuff to make/modify my dive gear. When I'm trailing behind my wife in some homewares store I occupy my time looking at products and asking myself if they give me any ideas on inventing/modifying/improving dive gear. Yeah, I'm weird. :)

    Had not occured to me to just leave the valve off. Simple solution. I like it!

    I saw that and considered getting one before the site closed down. At this time, I want to keep the original external appearance of the reg. I may get one in the future.
