    That might trigger the OCD.

    Mine work find with AL80s, both Luxfer and Catalina using DGX low profile valves.

    I have to angle my regs a bit as well when using Luxfer AL80s with the transmitters facing down. No issues with my LP108s. I do have a weird Coyne LP95 that has a short neck that I have to angle my regs a little bit as well, but it's a boat anchor, so probably wouldn't ever try to sidemount it and I don't have a second one anyway.

    My Deep 6 Expedition on a Catalina AL 80 requires the angled approach.

    Huh. My reg is vertical, the transmitter is on the port away from the valve knob, and I've wrapped it with orange tape.

    I've tried the transmitter on both sides....just above the valve knob and opposite to it, like the picture. the other HP port has a button gauge in it.

    The discussion is about sidemount. The setup you are showing is single tank back mount.

    Oops. Sorry.
    I don't have any pictures of the transmitter setup on my sidemount regs.
