  • Patent number: 10772389
    Abstract: A tank cinch is configured to cooperate with a strap to secure a tank of compressed air to a buoyancy compensation device. The tank cinch includes an adjustable frame having a sliding member, a first cam receiver and a second cam receiver. A lever body including a first cam and a second cam is pivotably joined to the adjustable frame and is pivotable about a pivoting axis defined by the adjustable frame. The lever body is configured to fix a first end portion of the strap. The adjustable frame is configured to fix a second end portion of the strap with the sliding member when the lever is rotated about the pivoting axis towards the adjustable frame member. The cams are arranged to bear against an outermost surface of the tank and to be received in the cam receivers when the lever body is pivoted towards the adjustable frame.

  • Patent number: 9889911
    Abstract: A back pack for an underwater breathing gas tank is provided. The back pack includes a tank mounting structure having a front surface facing away from an underwater breathing gas tank when an underwater breathing gas tank is operably mounted to the tank mounting structure. The tank mounting structure defines a recess. The front surface defines an opening of the recess. The tank mounting structure defines a bottom surface of the recess opposite the opening in the front surface. The back pack includes a strap and a buckle. The buckle has a latched state for securing the strap in a fixed position for securing an underwater breathing gas tank to the tank mounting structure. The buckle, when in a latched state, is positioned at least partially within the recess.
