Technical divers have long recognised the potential problems associated with fin straps that can break free from the diver's fins or do not properly adjust with changes in depth. In such cases, divers may lose their fins - which can, in certain situations, create a particularly difficult situation to manage. Nobody wants to be left watching their fin drift into the depths of the ocean at the start of a dive, or be left stranded on a demanding and anticipated dive.
Halcyon's Spring Heels provide a more secure attachment point for your Jetfin-style fins than traditional rubber straps. The Halcyon Spring Heels come in three sizes, allowing almost all divers an easy fit.
Sizing your Spring Heels
Spring straps can also be sized quickly and simply. Wear your bootie (dry suit or wetsuit) and place the foot into the fin pocket. Measure the distance from pin to pin behind the heel to select the appropriate size. Typically, if you are between sizes, it's best to go down a size, unless you are sensitive about a too-snug strap.
Length of Spring Heels:
Medium: 8 inch (20cm) spring
Large: 10 inch (25.4cm) spring
X-Large: 12 inch (30.5cm) spring
