Scubapro Regs - What's in the box?

    Hi,

    I recently purchased a set of regs from an online retailer here in Australia and I'm suspecting I didn't get everything that should have been in the original packages.

    I ordered:
    - MK25 Evo 1st stage
    - S620Ti 2nd stage
    - R195 occy

    They offered to assemble, which I accepted (perhaps in hindsight I shouldn't have as this gives license to open everything)...

    What I can't find online is exactly what comes in the retail packaging for these products. So I cannot go back to the shop and say you need to provide these missing items.

    It came assembled in a box for another model - A700. So the packaging has the wrong serial number. No packaging for the occy.
    No paperwork (manuals, warranty info etc). I've seen videos online of the occy coming with a retainer clip? None provided with mine again I'm not sure if this is included.

    Can anyone help list off what should be in each box?
    Cheers.

    Sorry? Do you mean cancel the order?

    I got the same setup in store a little while back (and love it, you’re in for a great reg!)

    And got:

    manuals for products,
    Box for the s260 and mk25 (it was a set),
    Bag for R195,
    An Allen key,
    Octo retaining clip,
    Port plugs

    sounds like they may have kept the plugs and manuals, as well as the clip.

    Following up, the plugs probably won’t be an issue as you’ll need a 2nd stage/octo on there all the time. It’s a bummer they didn’t keep them in though.

    I think you can get the manuals online, and in all honesty I use a piece of shock cord over the plastic clip they offer. I find the scubapro one kind of fiddly. So in that case it’s not much of a loss. Hopefully it was cheaper than locally to make up for the inconvenience

    Thanks for the quick reply. Gives me some ammo when I call for them to explain themselves.

    Actually the plugs that were removed for assembly were in the box.

    I know the manuals are all available online but I'm a bit of a stickler. I mean if I think of a scenario where I want to sell them on in 2 years I'd like to provide all documents and packaging if I can. It'd look a bit dodgy if I'm boxing it in an A700 with different serial. And when you're dropping thousands of $ (I also bought a computer) you expect better.


    What's the R195 bag? As in it doesn't come in a box?

    Inside the MK25/S620 box there is a packet with some information and a hex wrench that fits the port plugs. There will not be a hex wrench in the R195 box. The serial numbers are on the regulators, so the boxes are not necessarily needed, although they are technically yours.

    I’m realizing I didn’t read the post carefully. I picked up a r095 and they’re packaged differently.

    yours should have been in a box, which holds the grey retaining clip

    You're right, it's more just the feeling that I've been short changed. When you buy something brand new there are certain expectations.
