• DIVE RITE's stainless steel XT BACKPLATE is one of the few backplates that is made in the USA. All Dive Rite backplates are laser cut and individually finished by hand. This attention to detail ensures that there will be no rough, jagged edges that could potentially damage harness or accessory webbing. The XT backplate uses an 11 gauge, low carbon and rust resistant 316L grade stainless steel. Weighing in at 5.2 lbs (2.4kg), stainless steel plates are a popular option for divers looking for a more even distribution of ballast weight.

    The XT BACKPLATE accommodates standard double tank bolt kits (11"/27.9cm distance); it has 2 mounting holes on the upper center part and a mounting slot on the bottom center part to adjust your tank hight. Two sets of 2" slots along the center allow divers to pass a cam strap and use the backplate for single tank diving without the need for a single tank adapter. A series of slots and holes along the outer edges of the backplate provide different options for mounting lights, pony bottles, lift bags, and other accessories. 2" (50mm) and 1" (25mm) slots at the bottom center of the plate allow for any crotch strap up to 2" (50mm) in width to be used.
