What are these?

Thu Jun 16, 2016 12:48 pm

I am cleaning out a dive shoo and found these brass clamps and big brass ring with a fat oring on it. Help!
There was a few goodies that I found so far, KMB band masks, comm unit, mistral, and a RAM.

I'm guessing the two with clamps are wrist cuff- to- glove sealing clamps to attach dry gloves to the the wrist seals on a heavy hard hat suit. That thought leads to the larger one being some kind of neck ring... maybe.

The smaller set are indeed for hard hat use. I have a set which I used with my Mark V helmet. They allow the tenders to fit dry gloves to the divers dress or to attach wrist seals as conditions change. The larger ring ...and i would just be guessing; perhaps to attach a constant volume drysuit hood.

Steve may well be right about the ring without the adjusting screw being a constant volume suit neck ring. Here's a "La Spirotechnique" page about the "Phoque" Constant Volume Suit:

The image illustrates both a "collier de sécurité" (security collar) and an "anneau de cou" (neck ring) for Cousteau's patented "Phoque" (Seal) Constant Volume Suit.

The big brass ring with o-ring is for a DESCO air hat know as a pot. The other clamps are for an old canvas Drysuit wrist seals/gloves.
