The assembly of the TS system consists of 4 parts:
2 Shoulder straps: these are guided through the slots provided at the top of the outer back plate and screwed tight (screw M6x10). The screw connection is secured against unintentional loosening with a threaded adhesive (Loctite). After each loosening of the screw connection, this screw lock should be renewed by re-gluing with suitable adhesive.
The screw connection is protected by an elastic cover.
At the lower end, the shoulder straps are guided through the diagonally arranged slots of the inner back plate. At this point, the attachment is made by the sewn Velcro surfaces. At intervals of 3 cm there are colored seams on the inside of the straps; These serve as a dimension line to achieve a uniform adjustment of right and left sides quickly and easily. The tight juxtaposition of Velcro surfaces is ensured by a short (50mm) and a long (100mm) elastic cover.
Other parts on the shoulder straps:
2 chest D-rings
2 Tri-glides with eyelet for attaching the chest strap
1 Bungee loop 5mm to attach the corrugated hose
1 Double bungee loop 5mm on the corrugated hose for inflator
1 Bungee loop 6mm for dry suit connection
4 Elastic bands 50 mm
