Introducing a New Full Color SCUBA BC Name Tag w/Emergency Medical Tab 0

Emergency Contact Info Scuba BC Name Tag

When we first designed the full color SCUBA BC Name Tag, we had a desire to add an option that would feature an emergency contact tab - one containing important medical and "In case of emergency" (ICE) contact information. Now that option is available for you.

The SCUBA BC Name Tag features a plastic tab that can be engraved with up to 9 lines (20 characters each) of emergency medical and contact information. Our example includes:

  • Diver name
  • Date of birth
  • Blood type
  • Drug allergies
  • "In Case of Emergency" Contact Name
  • Contact relationship
  • Contact phone numbers

Other ideas might include the Divers Alert Network - DAN emergency number, medical insurance info,

The tab slides down and fits snugly behind the name plate so data is not visible but is easily accessed by pulling up on the tab. The only visible line is "Emergency Info" that serves to visibly alert others to the location of the information.

Every SCUBA diver should have one of these on their BCD.

Attaching YourBagTag Scuba Name ID Tags to Dive Shop & Resort Rental Gear 0

While 4 inch zip ties work well for attaching YourBagTag scuba name ID tags to recreational gear, dive shops and resort rentals get a lot more wear and tear. A more sturdy way of attaching tags was given to us several years ago by a dive shop owner who stopped into our booth at the Diving Equipment Marketing Association (DEMA) trade show.

You will need several items - 150 lb test fishing leader, mini copper double barrel crimp sleeves 1.4 mm X 7 mm, and a crimping tool. I purchased mine on, here are the links as of Jan. 2017:

Cut a suitable length of leader material - actual length will depend on where you are going to attach the tag. Try and keep the length to a minimum as excessive length may allow the tag to catch on other equipment. Carefully insert ends of leader into the barrel crimp and use crimping tool to finish the crimp. Be sure and test by pulling on the tag.

Note: If you are using a different thickness - lighter/heavier line, you will need to adjust the size of the crimp. suggests the following crimp sizes for line:

  • 1.0mm x 14mm  60-80lb mono,
  • 1.3mm x 14mm   80-150 lb,
  • 1.4mm x 14mm 120-150lb,
  • 1.5mm x 14mm 150-200lb,
  • 1.8mm x 14mm 250-300lb,
  • 2.0mm x 14mm 300-400lb,
  • 2.2mm x 14mm 400-500lb,
  • 2.5mm x 14mm 500-600lb,
  • 2.7mm x14mm 600+,
  • 2.9mm x 14mm
