    So has the Red Bare got a OPH on it? In fairness I am assuming dekitting would be a PITA in the water but i may be wrong........it has hapened

    Make one side 40cm longer than the other and thread on a stainless buckle like this:

    The loop can be kept in check using a snoopy loop.

    Works a treat when needing to get out of the kit in the water without dislocating one's shoulder. Especially if diving off a RIB / RHIB

    Why?

    Most of my diving is from a RHIB in a OPH. As GB said, if youíre correctly weighted so the wing isnít over inflated, & the harness is setup correctly you can get in & out all day.

    That's what I use. I have a break in the harness which curiously has failed to kill me in years. Unclip it first, then undo your waistband and the kit just comes off. Undo the waistband first and it all floats up around your head and it's a pain in rhe arse to get out of.

    So just wondering what breaks people have used, WFO has suggested an option from Sump UK, I have had a look at their FB page are orders just placed through that page?

    Any others worth a look?
    See other posts regarding the OPH setup first.
    However, if you must include a break or extension, I created an extension loop using Kent Tooling double webbing thickness triglides and an APD bog-standard pinchclip (fastex buckle). I've been using it for years now on my OC rig (for various reasons) without any problems. I'd send you a photo but I have never ever managed to get one posted on here.
    Meanwhile, see other posts regarding the setup of the OPH. If it is hard to get in and out of in OW to get onto a rib, it is setup wrong or you have left your drysuit connected. Adding a break or a loop will fix that but introduce new things for you to deal with. Getting the adjustment right will simply fix it with no new issues.

    I have set it up recently with Ian France during a twinset refresher as a prelude to overhead training next year so think it's pretty well adjusted.

    I will have a flounder about in a quarry before I buy anything and see what happens.

    Good plan!

    Failing that, to make an extension loop, you need 0.5m or so minimum extra webbing. Set it up as normal right down to the shoulder d-ring on one side (the other side can be normal) then thread as follows: down straight through the double triglide, through socket end of clip (if using a pinch clip), back up through the double triglide (underneath the previous webbing). Then fold a loop as large as you need then up through the second double triglide, up through the plug end of the pinchclip, back down through the 2nd double triglide (on top of the previous webbing) then onto your waist band as usual. Squish the loop flat. Size the entire affair so that the pinch clip is lying flat against your body and the entire thing is as long with the pinch clip closed as the other (normally configured) shoulder strap would be. When you open the pinch clip, you get the extra loop length and thus a very loose shoulder strap. The entire thing will take a whilst to settle and bed in, so be prepared to adjust it regularly until it does.
