How To Secure An Octo or Alternate Air Source. All scuba divers agree you have to have an octo. We all agree it needs to be quick release. We all agree it should be clearly designated.
But why then do I see divers, week in, week out, with their Octos trailing behing them in the water column? That is not being a good buddy! Also, an unsecured Octo can free flow and cause gas loss. It also creates drag and presents an entanglement risk as well as possibly damaging the marine environment.

I’ve got three ways for you to mount your Octo to your BCD. Let me know in the comments if you have a different method or how you prefer to secure your alternate air source.
