The Cable Repair Kit has all of the materials necessary to temporarily repair damaged cable, tether, and other connections. It contains two specialized materials: Coax-Seal and Silicone Tape. The Coax-Seal is a hand moldable, non-toxic, non-conductive plastic that adheres to most surfaces and the silicone tape is a UV resistant and flexible tape that fuses only to itself. When used in a repair the coax seal forms a watertight barrier and the silicone tape is used to protect it. The kit also contains acetone wipes to help clean and prepare the cable surface for the best possible adhesion. With these tools in hand a day of diving doesn’t have to be called off because of a damaged cable, just perform a field repair and keep going!
We spent quite a bit of time testing out these tools and trying out different ways to apply them. Our best cable repair lasted to a full 1000m in the Crushinator! Please check out the tutorial link below for more details.
[guide_note]The Cable Repair Kit isn’t a permanent solution. Any damaged cables should be replaced as soon as possible. Whether the cable will remain waterproof or not is highly dependent on the quality of the repair performed.[/guide_note]
