    Anyone have pics or can describe using surgical tube to bungee mount a Teric to a forearm/wrist?
    I thought a saw an aftermarket setup here someplace.
    Thanks

    Narked @90 makes the one that I use. I use it with 1/8" Bungee and that is about as big as you can go, so I don't know how well tubing will work. Mine is set up with 2 isloated loops and a non-metalic adjuster. If either bungee loop breaks and or a pin comes off, It will still be retained.

    That’s what I’m looking for, scuba-tax and all!
    Thanks

    If you have an unused Petrel/Perdix strap that works great as well. I put bungee shock cord on my Petrel's so I had a number of spare straps. These are much better than the Teric's available bands, super convenient. I am surprised they don't sell it an an option. Especially useful with a dry suit, and easy to adjust for wet suit or bare wrist sizing.

    Available from Dive Gear Express for $20.

    This is how I bungee mounted my Oceanic Geo for years before it flooded (bad battery change). The same concept would work for the Teric

    How does this work for retention if you lose a pin?

    looks like it will stay on if you lose one pin, albeit dangly. if you lose both, you're kind of fcked but what are the odds of that happening?

    The one from Narked@90 will fall off if you lose a pin. It doesn't appear to be a continuous loop through both pins.

    Depends on how you do it ...

    Yes, I know the tail is ridiculously long. I will adjust it down to a reasonable length once I figure out the minimum necessary size to go over my dry-glove rings
