    Dive Rite Transplate Harness.. Anyone Diving This?

    BounceBounce, my new harness came in and OMG - I am only on step 8, and it has been 1 hour.

    I am trying to understand how they are threading the shoulder strap through the chest strap assembly.

    Help?

    Not familiar with that harness but if it threads similarly to a one piece then check out the instructional video that ST's put together:

    Thanks. I am seriously hoping to have this problem solved by next weekend. I want to have everything adjusted and pool tested this weekend.

    If you get confused listen to the music play.
    To much of everything is just enough.

    Follow up. It took two videos on start/pause and 30 minutes to install my new harness. And, I will always know my harness at the dive site because I have my appelets reversed. But, I don't care, I'm not taking it apart (again). It will be my conversation piece. I seriously doubt I will use them anyway, I prefer to route my inflator house through a small bungee cord.

    Thank you to those who posted about the videos. OMG. I am contacting Dive Rite on Monday and giving them a very very polite suggestion to just throw a DVD in the shipping box or a post it note that says, "Spare the effort, watch the video at Dive Rite TV."

    The instructions for the shoulder straps are completely different from the video. I went back and reviewed them after the install, just to see where I went wrong. They suggest using stops were the video did not include stops. But, the area I was completely lost, did make sense, but they needed different nouns. Or something.

    I am also a pro at weaving buckles now. I may take apart everyone's buckle at the dive site just so I can show off my buckle weaving skills.

    Thanks again!
