View Full Version : Brigade - Random Female Connectors

11-21-2007, 22:44
Playing with my Brigade tonight and trying to figure out all the innards. Attached to the inside of the waist band, between the waist band and the weight pockets, are 1/2 inch female clips. One on each side of the BCD. I have no idea what these are for. Any thoughts?

They're for the Ranger bladder which you don't have...It has a couple of flaps that secure the outside of the bladder. You can see one here in front of the Zeagle: http://www.zeagle.com/clientuploads/pictures/Bcs/ranger.gif

Could get one of those octo holders with a male end on it for the right side...

I haven't found any pre-made components that will attach to that clip.
However, if you want to make your own, you can buy the clips
at REI. They are the 3/4" Trovato series clips made by Hi-Tex. Hi Tex Buckle (http://www.rei.com/product/612223)

Thanks for starting this thread, rfredo, and everyone else for the clarification. i had the same question. none of my clip on goodies fit those connectors, so I just basically ignored them... now it all makes sense!

I bought two clips from the local hardware and some 1" webbing. Took it all to the local shoe repair shop and had them make me two d-ring attachments. I use them when I am diving with my video system. Clips off nicely and is out of the way. When I don't want the rings there I can just unclip them.

I called scubatoys wanting to use it for a octo holder but they didn't have anything that would fit it
