MAKO Spearguns (Tin Man) Pinch Weights

These 2lb weights were designed by Tin Man, the spearo / inventor from the Louisiana Gulf Coast.

As everybody in the spearfishing community knows, Tin Man has the unique ability of taking an existing piece of gear and making it better.

We are delighted to be working with Tin Man to offer his products to our customers.

These pinch weights are made exclusively for rubber freedive belts. The unique design totally eliminates the problem of weights sliding around, while making it easy to perfectly position them for maximum performance and comfort.


MAKO FREE REPLACEMENT/SAFETY POLICY

To our valued customers:
MAKO Spearguns recognizes that diving (both freediving and SCUBA) are potentially dangerous activities. We have all heard of tragic accidents where a diver is found on the bottom while still wearing a weight belt. We hope and pray that should any of our customers find themselves in a situation where ditching a belt may be necessary, that there is no delay and the belt is dropped immediately.

In many situations a belt is recoverable, however if your MAKO belt and lead and/or Tinman weights are ditched (and lost) in a true emergency…. MAKO will replace them at our cost.

The last thing we want is our customers considering the cost of a lost belt in an emergency. The only thing we ask is that the individual shares with us (and our friends and customers) some sort of write-up about how the situation developed and how it was resolved. That way, we can all learn and be reminded to keep safety in the forefront of our minds.

Dive safe,
Dano

How it works:

The key is the "hour glass" shaped belt slot. When the rubber belt is stretched, it gets thinner and moves easily through the hour glass.

But when the tension on the belt is released, it expands back to its original width, and the narrow part of the hour glass pinches the edges of the belt.

It is this "pinch" that holds the weights firmly locked in place.

Weight Belt remains the same length:

These pinch weights are perfect for rapid deployment.

The easy on, easy off design allows you to add and remove weight in seconds to account for changing conditions.

And because the belt passes straight through the weights (instead of weaving around them), the length never changes no matter how many weights you add or remove.
