SCUBA Hose Cover Kits
Protect & Personalize Your Scuba Equipment
Techflex® braided expandable sleeving is the perfect product for protecting vulnerable cabling and hoses in the SCUBA diving world. For added safety many of FLEXO's neon colors offer high visibility underwater and can make finding hoses faster and easier. The unique braided design doesn't trap moisture and slides on over all standard SCUBA hoses.
Benefits of High Visibility SCUBA Hoses
Identify: Visibility underwater can be hindered so navigating your SCUBA equipment can sometimes be difficult. Covering your hoses with these brightly colored braided sleeving kits can help with quick identification underwater. Not only can you identify your equipment faster, you can identify & differentiate other divers when everyone in your group has added bright colors to their equipment.
Beautify: Who said SCUBA hoses can’t be colorful? There’s no reason you can’t cover your hoses with the main intent being to make them look unique & colorful. Going SCUBA diving with a group? These colorful hose covers can help differentiate similar equipment within members of the group.
Protect: In addition to protecting YOU with increasing your visibility these hose covers also protect your hoses. The open weave doesn’t trap moisture preventing mold & mildew growth. Flexo® also provides a barrier of protection against UV damage, abrasion, and scuffs.

Installing Hose Cover Kits Over SCUBA Hoses
Step 1: Measure Sleeving To Length. Measure the sleeving and mark the measurement with a pen or marker. Add an additional 1 1/2 - 2 inches and cut the extended length of sleeving.
Step 2: Fitting The Sleeving. Slip the additional lenght of sleeving over the end of your application so that the mark is at the spot on the installation where you want the sleeving to end. (On this low pressure air hose, it is just below the connector.)
Step 3: Taping The End. Starting at the line, take a few tight turns of tape down the application so that it covers the sleeving and extends about 1 1/2" on the application. Make sure the tape is smooth and tight. Cut the end and press down for a smooth finish.
Step 4: Turning It Back. Push the sleeving down over itself and the tape and keep pushing until the other end of the sleeving falls into place at the far end of the application. If there are any sharp edges or loose wires on the ends, temporarily wrap them with tape to avoid snags.
Step 5: Finishing The Installation. This system creates a clean termination with a slight flare at the end. Please Note: This installation process only works at one end of your application. To finish the other end, you will have to use another termination procedure.
