We improved everything.
The NX SERIES has proven that you can take tradition and by applying innovation to the design and materials, create something better, unique and special. Bolt snaps, as would a backplate seem to be pretty resistant to evolution, yet the NX SERIES backplate has revolutionized traditional approaches. Now the NX SERIES bolt snap breaks a 60-year stalemate in design and greatly improves ease of use and practical application. Tradition, innovated.
We should never have to make choices that compromise our diving. Dry gloves and neoprene mitts give us warm hands but create difficulty operating clips and smaller controls. Cold hands can ruin the enjoyment of a dive.
The NX SERIES bolt snap range, whether double ender or the smallest clip can easily be handled in the thickest dry glove systems, eliminating the need to compromise.
A common reason for a missed clip is that the gate is hard to fully open on traditional bolt snaps. The NX trigger is large, smooth and easy to operate making a full opening simple.
At the same time the NX SERIES has significant anti entanglement properties. Smaller triggers often have a hook that line can easily catch in, the NX SERIES trigger shrugs off line traps without fuss.
The finger support provides stability and control, increasing the accuracy of the clip.
Attention to detail can solve some big issues. For example, just by ensuring the NX boltsnap head is appropriately rounded and contoured, by thinking carefully about optimizing the hook shape, clipping into D rings becomes so much easier.
One size does not fit all. The eye on the NX SERIES bolt snaps is perfectly customized for the intended use.
Using an off-centre swivel creates many advantages. The position of the hand when your finger is through the bolt snap eye is optimized, stage and sidemount cylinders become easier to mount and remove and it allows for a lighter weight eye.
On smaller snaps, the small and tidy eye is exactly what is needed for attaching to long hoses, lights, and other accessories without wasting any space. The clipped item stays tighter to the diver and it is easier to keep the bolt snap orientation exactly as desired.
Materials technology is a critical component in the NX SERIES, it both facilitates and enhances the design elements. In the NX bolt snaps not just the clip, but the spring, gate and all parts of the NX SERIES are made from the highest quality AISI 316 stainless steel.The AISI 316 marine-grade steel is utilized for its anti-corrosion properties with its increased nickel and added molybdenum content.
