Hey,

I was wondering if anyone has ever used one of these to convert a DIN to a Yoke and if they are universal.

DIN INSERT FOR DIN VALVES (2 INSERTS) 313-1 - eBay (item 350035672413 end time Mar-18-08 11:56:43 PDT) (http://cgi.ebay.com/DIN-INSERT-FOR-DIN-VALVES-2-INSERTS-313-1_W0QQitemZ350035672413QQihZ022QQcategoryZ16057QQs sPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem)

My brother has a DIN tank and I have a Yoke reg, so was wondering if I picked one of these up then I would be able to use his tank on occasion.

Thanks,

Those are only for 200 bar valves. 300 bar valves are din only. BTW, that seems like a ridiculous price for an insert. I haven't priced them. But the entire valve (http://www.scubatoys.com/store/detail.asp?product_id=XS_Scuba_Tank_Valve) is only $52.95.

To see if his is 200 bar, just attach his reg. If it's 200, then there will be a few threads still visible on the reg. If not, then it's probably 300 bar. Another way is to see if your yoke will EASILY go over the valve (don't try to force it). I think that most yokes are too short to go over the longer 300 bar din valve.

I converted my USD Reg from Yoke to DIN.
I have an old steel tank that is DIN only.
I also have the new XS SCUBA Pro Valve on my tanks which has the adapters. To be sure, I would take the tank to the dive shop for some free advice. They also have the adapters - no need to buy there.

It is ridiculous for an insert, but that ebay auction includes two. still a little high priced as his 'buy it now' price is $28 and you can buy a new Thermo valve insert for $12.75 each.

The easier way is to just look at the back side of the valve. A 200 bar valve that can use the insert and be converted to a yoke valve will have a circular indent on it. This where the yoke screw screws in. Not all 200 bar valves will have this indent.

The seller is a good ebay seller though. He's got good prices on some things and others he's not as good. It just depends.

Like the others, I'd want to know what valve he has before I said buy it. I'll bet it's 300 bar because he'd have the insert otherwise.

Actually, that's probably the best way. And easier than either way I suggested. I didn't know any 200 bar valves were not the convertible type.

I just glanced at the add, and didn't notice the price was for 2. My mistake.
