  • A question: Is it possible to replace broken plastic D-rings with a metal carabiner? Or perhaps, insert a metal carabiner into the same slot as the D-ring and use the carabiner instead?

    It is an idea I have but of course it may not be suitable for various reasons.

    Why not buy a replacement 316SS D ring? I know for a fact Lian hup Seng sells D rings, you can just pick up the size that fits your BC.

  • I think the bcd dont allow for the replacement for d rings that is why the thread starter is looking at replacement via those insertion type like a carabiner where can hook it there..

  • Sold off my backplate BC and now looking for a travel BC. Anyone did the switch and comfortable with the different style of BC?

    Am looking at ScubaPro Go but its a jacket style and not sure will get used to it or not.

    some of the advantages of D-rings and why people don't use other shape types (e.g O shape ones):
    the way it's typicall attached with the curve portion allow multiple clip on & clip off (equipment, camera, stage bottles etc), w/o edges, snags...
    the way weight is loaded up the D-ring with the flatter portion into the webbing distributes it more evenly so this has a bearing on the load spread as well as how webbing is affect (chaffing, poking)..
