Our valves on our sidemount and doubles tanks are all dive rite DIN 3000psi | 200 Bar | Left Right configurations. With these types of valves the loop bungee is hooked on the stems, letting the tank knobs align themselves on the outsides making it easier for the diver to shut down a valve. We also have the capability to set up double 80 cubic foot banded tanks.
