Nope, I have seen many cases and talked with many officers/security about criminals who target vehicles with dive stickers/etc on their vehicles. When shore diving, many people have extra tanks/equipment in their vehicle as well as watches/valuables that cant get wet. It also makes it easy for them to know that youll be gone for awhile and easy to spot (coming back w/ dive gear)..Sure it doesnt mean that if you have a sticker youll get broken into - but I know for a fact it increases the risk..

Pretty sure I wont be driving my Dodge 2500 4x4 to dive spots. At least not here in texas. Maybe once we get re-located next week to Orlando I might think about removing them.

But I have the Naui sticker that game with the OW pack-
The Atomics sticker that came with my B2's.

License plate frame "I'd Rather Be Diving".

SingleDivers.com bumper sticker.

Working on my own "Team Platypus" logo signage for the doors.

My vehicle has an alarm, so I'm not too worried about break-ins.

Too many stickers to count. I'm an independent instructor, so I mark my van and my truck with my logo and website. It's pretty good advertising for a very small investment. I also have a bunch of dive related bumper stickers.

I wanted those - from ST right??

My current license plate frames read "dogs have owners, cats have staff". Considering I have 5 cats who command me, I thought I'd better leave it as is.

And no, I have no dive stickers.

I have a dive flag in the shape of a sea turtle. I used to have the diveflag shark sticker top center of my back window. But I took it off to put on my "Military Police" decal. So now I have the turtle on the top left. I feel strangely guilty about removing the shark. Feels like I have violated somthing primal in removing it.

I don't have one either. My instructor had given us a sticker which came with out study kit. He told us put it anywhere except on your car. I think that the reasoning was that if the car is parked at the beach and there is a sticker, criminals might assume you will be gone for a while and want to break into your car. I actually never did ask him specifically why he told us not to stick it on our car.

Man, from my experience since moving here, I thought it was illegal to have anything related to Texas "little bitty"! :smiley36:

EDIT: I have a dive flag with the Neptune Divers logo in the center (My favorite Dive shop in Utah). Along with an American Flag / PADI logo combination sticker.

No, I don't. As an extremely wealthy scuba instructor, I didn't want to advertise that I may have thousands of dollars of scuba equipment in my Ferrari Enzo. :smiley36: By the way, if you are a sticker person, I have several "Who's Your Buddy?" dive flag stickers if interested. If I can just locate them.

Guys for the record, if you're worried about sticking stickers to your car, WD-40 will take it right off with no damage. That's how I removed my stickers when my car went back to the dealer. However, that means you're out of a sticker as well, so make sure you don't want it if it has to be removed!!

My truck has three stickers. (99 ford ranger, black)

Back window:
Driver side, sticker from a band I used to be in that I think is funny
Passenger side, a DAN sticker with flag and number to call. It got scratched when moving some things...I have it on so if I got hurt maybe someone would see the number and call it. I often leave extra tanks and gear in the rear of my truck, covered by a vinyl tonneau, and have yet to have anything stolen. My dive buddy keeps a Glock under his seat, and throw it in my truck when we take it....so if anyone stole anything and he saw them, well......yeah.....they'd need new tires :) And an engine. Depending on how many shots ended up in the engine, he'd go looking for a gas tank too....:)

On the tailgate, drivers side, "Abortion is Homocide" sticker. Black with white text, blends in perfectly with the black of the truck and looks pretty spiffy.

Sometimes I throw on a magnet that says "October Bash" but only the people at my school know what it means. Most people assume it's a band and I get asked about it alot. It either goes on the passenger side tailgate even with the other sticker, or on the bumper, depending on my mood. Gets annoying to take off to wash the truck, so I just leave it off nowadays.

I also have a dive flag plate thing on the front of the truck.


If anything was stolen, my dorm insurance would cover it, with a $25 deductable. And if it was stolen with my friend around, I'd get it back for sure. :)





(I wouldn't have the sticker on, but it has the DAN number and I wanted to have that somewhere that I and others could find it in an emergency, and the plate holder on the front looked so naked that I wanted to put something on it, and a dive buddy gave me the plastic plate.)

Now on my wifes car (our official dive wagon) the is a Florida state dive sticker. She hates stickers on her windows and usually scrapes em off as soon as they go on but she has left this one on.

I also stay away from stickers due to the theft issue. It is like putting a stickr on your car to say " Hey thieves, I am in the water and my wallet and cellphone are in the car"

I would love to put stickers on the car as I am proud to be a diver but I think it is just looking for trouble.

I hate stickers in general, and really really hate them on my car. I will put a small window cling in the back window now that someone posted that link, and my LDS also sells those license plate surround things--only they have the dive flag on them. We have to have 2 license plates so can't do any of those fun scuba plates.

No sticker yet, but if my dad and I are considering getting a DAN O2 kit. (We dive in areas where an ambulance would take 40+ minutes to get there and the fd would be maybe 20, depends on the volunteer response time.)

If we get a DAN O2 kit in march when they are 10% off, we will put the DAN O2 onboard stickers on the cars that would carry the kit. Better to give the fd a heads up that the car could be carrying a compressed oxidizer in case of emergency.(car fire, etc)

Though I obviously wouldn't leave the unit in the car all the time, could lead to a big boom if it was hot enough.

Tanks won't explode when left in the car, unless something is wrong with the tank (or it's burst disk). More of a concern is the heat effect on the rubber bits, long term. As long as you regularly inspect things, however, it should be fine.

Well as far as I know, the valves on the dan O2 bottles don't have burst discs, but I may be wrong. All I have seen on them is the wheel to open the valve, and the single pin indexed outlet, no burst disc, but I don't have one in front of me now.

No I do not mark my vehicle, because in certain secluded areas between Moss Landing and South of Carmel, even in Mendocino, thieves may target diver's vehicles. Because they know they are in the water and not around their cars; and may have discovered that divers have left their wallets, house keys, house addresses in the car and maybe expensive gear. In Mendocino, divers have had their gear stolen at night while they slept.

I never worried about marking my vehicle,

However, I am concerned when I do a shore dive. The only spot in my area for a decent shore dive is the Blue heron bridge at Phil Foster park. It is not in the best neighborhood.

The dive stickers don't mean much. The bad guys can just show up before high tide and watch the divers gear up and pack their wallets away in the cars.
When I dive there, I have a car key clipped off to my harness and a credit card, debit card license and cash in one of those water proof beach banks in my trunks under my wetsuit.

Good point though.

Please enlighten us if you have speciic inbfo. it would be most helpful.

My dive sticker worked out well for me today.

I was having a lunch meeting with the leadership of my Boy Scout troop and when I came out, I found a business card on the driver's side window of a local diver and author promoting his book, Bluewater Gold Rush.

I'd seen the book in some of my LDSs and, now that I know that the author is a local diver, I'm going to buy it. I'm also going to see if we could get together for some dives. I'd noticed a truck a few parking spaces down with a diver down sticker when I parked, so I'm assuming that was him.

The divers and Park Rangers, sometimes posted at dive shops or parking area or campsite. Del Monte Beach to Lovers Point or Carmel Bay - Monastery Beach are not secluded areas. There are a lot of people and vehicles in these areas. Though an FBI agent had the boat motor stolen from his inflatable while parked at his hotel. He posted at the Bamboo Reef Dive Shop. There are some nice dive locations south of Carmel Bay past Pt. Lobos that divers have had problems - before and after Garapata. Also the secluded parking areas north of Elkhorn Slough. In Mendocino, Van Damme and Russian Gulch are posted at the information areas. Some agencies list their crime statistics. I would not know whether it is State Park, HWY Patrol, or County Sheriff in these areas. I hope this helps.

no stickers on my car. the main reason is that my wife would kill me. the second reason is that some of the spots we dive are sometimes devoid of people. a smart thief knows that a diver will be gone for a while and unable to hear the sounds of a break-in. so in some spots, a dive flag sticker is like a "rob me" sign on your car...

Not since some friends of mine had their cars broken into while diving a local river. The only cars that got busted into were the ones with dive stickers.

Like a thief can't see you get your stuff out of the car. Kind of hard to hide a BCD, fins, wet suit, tank, and stuff.



Some one thought it would be funny to stick a K2 snowboard stomp pad to the back of my XTerra so yeah that is there. 2 from my friend Pete's snowboard shop in Austria Lolita's Cherry and La Resistance. One that says Growing old IS for sissy's! And I think there is one from Birkenstock on there somewhere. Pete told me to take that one off it is cheesy. Oh yeah and one from DogFunk.com. And the back window in Old English script PIT BULL GERMANY.
My XTerra is the "Toss it in Lanna's XTerra and lets go vehicle." That is why Mr. Man is buying me a BWM. I need something that doesn't have Snowboard gear, ski stuff, dive stuff, dog hair, water bottles in it. Oddly enough NO dive stickers yet.
I bought one for my husband for his upcoming promotion that says "DIVE NAKED" but there is no way in Haiti he will put THAT on his BMW.
I think he said he would put it in his office or something.

I have thought about it in the past but I kind of want to keep my dive gear from getting grabbed.

I never put any stickers on car, don't need people breaking in looking for something I advertised.

I don't like to put stickers on my car either. But what I have been thinking about is one of those magnets like you see on cars all the time-like the different colored ribbons, but a dive flag instead. Then you could display it when you want or take it off if you were somewhere you were worried about displaying it. And...if you get a new car-just take it with you. You could probably also get one small enough for a motorcycle. I'm going to check with one of our local trophy shops to see if they can do those.

So....I'll drag this one back up. I don't have one yet, but need to get a dive flag for the truck. It will go opposite my NRA sticker.

I do... It's just a reflective dive flag, nothing fancy...

I hate stickers but I'll be putting a license plate frame thingy on the new dive mobile as soon as I can get to the dive shop.

Decals are cool...but magnets are better!

Unless your car is made of fiberglass...

BTW, had a Texas-shaped dive flag sticker on my car's back glass and someone asked me, "What's with the 'No Texas' sticker?"

I couldn't stop :smilie39: to answer them...probably thought I was bonkers!

Looks kind of like a logo or something, but i cant figure out what it from.

Anyone know if its a company logo or something?

I don't have one yet, but I've been on the lookout for one. :)

Who else thinks ScubaToys.com should be on a nice bumper sticker? :D

Got a little dive flag at the back side of my little white car... looks nice. It is one of the first things I bought for the car.

Yep. On the lower left side of the back window I have a red and white diver down flag. Too bad this photo was taken before I put the sticker on...
