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 Amazon.com, 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. CatchAllTackle.com 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
New Scuba BC Slate Name Tag 0
Many of our products begin as ideas or suggestions that come from you, our customers. Our new Scuba BC Slate Name Tag is no exception. The idea for this tag came straight from the Diving Equipment Manufacturers Association (DEMA) trade show floor. A dive shop and resort owner came up to our booth on the show floor and said, “We love your embroidered BC name tags, is there any way you could make one that we could write on with a grease pencil?” The BC Slate Name Tag was born. Dive shops, resorts, and live-aboards can now enjoy the same benefits of being able to quickly identify their students or guests when they are all in the same kind of dive gear. The BC Slate Name Tag is made with the same tough 2 inch polypropylene webbing as our standard BC tag and comes with a white or yellow matte plastic slate material that measures 2.5 inches wide by 1.75 inches tall. The slate is attached to the webbing by a marine adhesive and 4 nylon rivets.
The slate can be engraved with up to 2 lines of laser-engraved text. Wholesale pricing is available.
