Regulators not designed for cold water use are especially prone to freezing. Our simple yet extremely effective Freeflow Control Device contributes a significant advance in diver safety. In the event of 2nd stage freezing, freeflow can cause catastrophic loss of air. With the FCD fitted to your regulator, a simple sliding action allows the diver to isolate the freeflowing 2nd stage and continue the dive using a secondary air source or alternatively, the diver can manually control the air flow allowing a safe ascent to the surface. Designed to fit all regulators that use the standard 9/16″ UNF hose fitting.
