A superb, compact Stainless Steel divers reel for all divers.

Dive Rite Wreck / Safety Reel - Small 43m Blue Reel

The Dive Rite Small Divers Wreck / Safety Reel, a classic versatile reel. Originally designed for cave penetration as a safety reel, this compact stainless reel has been used for many years as a wreck diving reel. The small wreck reel comes with 43m of #22, 2mm braided line although it will take a heavier, tougher #36, 3mm, braided line but only 30m. The classic safety reel is also suitable for deployment of SMB's and lift bags if required.

The Classic Safety/Cavern Reel  is one of the most versatile length reels in our line. With its 140-feet of line, it is the perfect reel for cavern divers and their limited penetration. As a cavern diver progresses into cave training the Classic Safety Reel can act as a jump or safety reel. Wreck divers have also adopted the Classic Safety reel as the perfect reel for shooting lift bags or marker buoys.

The traditional design of the Classic Safety Reel is easy to use. A top mounted handle allows divers to easily hold the reel and a light in one hand while winding the reel with the other. An ergonomic T-top stainless lockdown screw positively locks the free spinning spool in place when needed, and a retaining screw ensures that the lockdown screw cannot back out all the way and be lost.

This reel is easy to use to lay navigating lines over a wreck or for small penetrations of the wreck. Although for more serious exploring we recommend putting a heaveir duty line on the reel. These reels position the handle on top, which helps divers who use a handheld light to hold both the light and the reel in one hand, freeing the other hand to work the reel. The handle is ideal for mounting a small torch (Princeton Tec rage or Attitude) to make handling the reel and torch in darker conditions easier! The frame of the reel comes with a series of pre-drilled holes so divers can change positions from a top-mount handle, to a side-mount handle or a left-hand operated reel. The spool is held in place with a stainless steel "C" clip so replacing the spool or cleaning up a jammed reel is simple.

A medium sized bolt snap is used to secure the Classic Safety Reel to a D-ring on the diver.

Dive Rite Divers Reel Usage - Top Tips!

  1. Before diving with a new reel (or a dry reel that has been in storage), put the reel in a bucket of water and after soaking, pay out the entire length of line and reel it back in. This will moisten the line, precluding it from swelling on the reel and further preventing the possibility of jamming or damaging the spool.
  2. As with most dive equipment, you should rinse your reel with fresh water following each dive. You should also periodically disassemble the reel, and remove any build up of salt or sediment on its internal parts.
  3. Dive Rite recommends pulling some or all of the line off the spool before each dive, then rewinding it neatly but not too tightly, so as to prevent the possibility of jamming during line deployment.
  4. Finally, too much line on the spool can cause jams during initial deployment, if you are having a problem with jams try removing 10 or 15 feet of line.
