Replace the neck seal on an OS systems dry suit

If you're a serious diver, especially anywhere cold, then your dry suit is probably a near and dear friend. If something goes wrong with it, you may think that you need to pay someone a lot of money to fix you baby. But no! They're actually pretty easy to fix yourself. This video will show you how to fix the neck seal on an OS Systems drysuit yourself with just some spare parts that you can order from the manufacturer.

From the creator:

I had to wait soooooo long for the return of my Scuba Dry Suit after repairs to a spot near to the neck seal. The first time I came to use it was about 3 months afterwards and I found that the repair shop had accidentally dropped a spot of solvent onto the neck seal which burned a hole through it. After watching a you tube film on how to change a latex neck seal, I sent off to O.S.Systems the makers and ordered a neck seal, and a 4 ounce size of glue for the job. Including shipping across coast to coast in the USA. a total cost of $75 or approx 50 quid for the English divers watching. This was the first time I had ever attempted a repair on a dry suit or any other suit for that matter. Anyway I was amazed on just how simple the job turned out to be. I always say, if you need a job doing right, then do it your self. I am glad I did. I enjoyed the experience and would not be afraid to repair any other part of the suit again should it need repairing. By the way, O.S.Systems sent me for free the brushes for the glue, and about 12 different colored 3 inch round patches for the shell body of the suit should I need them in the future and a written document on how to exchange other parts of the dry suit. .
