Your buoyancy compensator is primarily designed to help you maintain neutral buoyancy while in a comfortably balanced, face-down swimming position underwater. It is also designed to provide you with flotation so that you can rest on the surface, but it is not designed to function as a life preserver or personal flotation device (PFD). In order to meet U.S. Coast Guard regulations, a PFD must be designed so that it automatically rights you to a face-up position and holds your head out of the water on the surface. The design characteristics of a personal flotation device are therefore different...

FITTING YOUR HALCYON BUOYANCY COMPENSATOR The Halcyon Buoyancy Compensator system provides superior buoyancy control and trim adjustment for divers in any underwater environment.

The BC harness system is adjustable to fit all body types, providing for a much more precise fit than jacket-style BCs. The Halcyon Buoyancy Compensator has two primary forms of adjustment. The...

The crotch strap should be comfortable and allow you to reach your tanks. The waist belt should fit as snug as is comfortable. Do not overtighten the waist belt so much as to restrict breathing. When adjusting the waist belt, make sure to set the buckle so that it is off to your right side. With the buckle in this position, the crotch strap is unable to accidentally open the buckle. The waist belt buckle (and/or another buckle) can be used to hold your Explorer light canister in place. To adjust the crotch strap, buckle the waist strap without running it through the crotch strap. Now pull the...

bottles in your diving. If the D-rings are too low, the stage bottles will hang too far away from your body, causing significant drag and possibly damaging marine environments. The shoulder D-rings should also be high enough to allow for proper storage of your Scout back-up lights and to allow for ease of use of your wing's inflator hose to adjust trim and buoyancy, yet not so high that you can't clip an item off with the same-side hand as the clip. To position the shoulder D-rings, extend your arms straight out to the side, parallel to the ground. Bend at the elbow and bring your thumb straight...

FINAL ASSEMBLY OF YOUR BC SYSTEM Final assemly includes attaching the Halcyon Single Tank Adapter (STA) to the wing and backplate with the two supplied fasteners/bolts. If you are using the 6-lb.

Place the wing on top of the STA through the bolts, then the backplate on top of the wing. Tighten both bolts and fasteners securely. Slide the cam straps over your cylinder and tighten at desired position in relation to the cylinder's valve (figure 10). When diving with doubles,...
